I lost my Dad to Lung Cancer in November 2017 after a brief fight, so I'm doing this in his memory because losing someone in this way is devastating and horrific and just utter shit. If I can raise a bit of cash to help the cause, it won't take away the loss, but it may help others down the line.
I don't run. Ever. So this is a big deal as I'm actually going to have to train and all sorts for this and I've never done anything like it before. My Dad's death also made me really think about all the chances we have to do things with our lives that we don't take, so maybe (as I quit smoking 3 days after my Dad was diagnosed) I should have a go at running. Part of me is thinking, what the hell am I doing, I might actually die doing this, but I'm determined to do this for my Dad, and luckily, I'll be 'running' (trying to run) with the Trashy Flamingos to support me and keep me going. Surely that's worth donating to, right?
Please chuck in whatever you can. If I got one single pound out of everyone on FB that alone would be 700 quid.
Thanks all. Fuck cancer.
