I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

In memory of

Lots of my super fit friends have been running marathons........ that I'm most definitely not. A marathon I'd imagine to be physically and mentally draining but losing a loved one to cancer is something that you will never recover from. That is why every year with the support of my husband, children and Dad I run the 5k Race for Life. It's not about the distance it's about coming together with people who's life's have been turned upside down by this cruel disease. For every second and every minute that I run I think about my Mum the whole way round. Listening through my earphones to some of her favourite songs. Let's face it I wouldn't normally be listening to the likes of Barry Manilow! I may not be the fittest but I believe her death has made me a stronger person.
For myself and my brother to suddenly be without a mum at the ages of 11 and
13 life has never been the same.
This is why this tradition of the 5k is so important to me, to raise money in her memory.
I've thought about 10k, or even further but this is what we do every year and I don't want to mess with this special tradition.
Please donate if you can, if you can't then pencil this date in your diary. Think of me running while listening to Barry and spare a thought for all of the people fighting.
Thanks for reading my page. ?Xxx
