This is a very last minute plan, I have just signed up for this year’s ‘Full Marathon Shine Night Walk’ in the fight to beat cancer! – which is in 10 days. 26 miles around London overnight! Those of you who know me well, may have seen me recently go a bit obsessive over my walking expeditions, hopefully that will get me through the 26 miles!
In 1990, I lost my mum to blood cancer, I was 10 years old. 1990, doesn’t seem that long ago in the grand scheme of things, however, it’s fair to say the chances of survival in today’s day are far higher than what they were back then. One big contributing factor towards this, is the amount of work that is done by organisations like Cancer Research UK.
I would love to raise some funds towards this cause, in honour of my late mother. I also want to dedicate this challenge to my mother in law Patu, who is currently fighting cancer.
Each year Cancer Research UK’s scientists get closer to beating cancer, and they’ve helped double survival rates in the last 40 years. But we can’t stop there.
Only with our continued support can they turn this research into breakthroughs that save millions of lives. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
Many thanks in advance for your contributions!
Wish me luck!
