I'm fundraising to raise money for Cancer Research UK

Me and my brother Thomas are trying to raise money for lung cancer research. Our dad is currently battling on and fighting for time with lung cancer. We wanted to make a difference to lung cancer and make him proud while we still can. So here we are asking for sponsors for our 5k run. ( don’t laugh, we’re going to train before hand. Lol) We are hoping to raise £530 -£10 for every year of his life. If we manage to raise more than this we are going to hope and pray that every £10 we raise over £530 will be a bonus year we get with our dad. Fingers crossed. We shall perhaps up the k if the 5k comes too easy. 🙄🙄🤣 Also we will update you all with the training preparation via videos. Donate if you can. Every penny counts. Lots of love Thomas and Mark burke The burke brothers.
