I'm fundraising to raise money for Cancer Research UK

In memory of

Uncle Kenny

This Easter weekend I have decided to enter Devizes to Westminster (DW) starting on a Friday and finishing on a Monday.

The DW starts in Devizes, Wiltshire, finishing at Westminster Bridge in central London, opposite the Houses of Parliament. Taking place over the Easter Weekend, it's a gruelling course and one of the hardest kayaking races on this planet, 125 miles long including 77 portages.

I have also decided to do the race in memory of my uncle Kenny who passed away to soon and miss him. I have decided to raise money for cancer research. Cancer has taken love ones from me and is effecting love ones currently.

Thank you for visiting my Fundraising Page. The money I raise will help fund life-saving research and to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

Good Evening,

Sorry for taking so long in updating about my cancer fundraising, as over the last couple of weeks work has been crazy busy, Few weeks ago DW was cancelled which was annoying but always have to look on the positive side of situation like this, I have decided to carry on my fundraising till next year or when DW is next run. This means another year of training and another year of fundraising to put me in a stronger position.

I've upped my running and start to do some bike ride's it had been over a year since i was last out, dusted her down and she is still riding as when she was new. Hopefully it wont be to long till i can start putting the miles down in my boat. But so far i would say i have never been as fit as i am now, must keep the training going so i don't loss all the hard work i put in during the winter.

Please keep sharing and donating.

Keep safe and stay at home if you can.
