I’m walking the 26-mile Shine Night Walk to help beat cancer!

In memory of

Emma Bentley (Mum)

07 Jun 1972 - 24 May 2006

On September 25th 2021, I will be setting out on the 26-mile walk around London past all the famous landmarks we know and love at night. I'm trying to raise £26 for each of the 26 miles I will cover, so £676 in total!! If it’s higher I will obviously be delighted!!

This year, May 24th 2021, marked 15 years since my mother passed away after a year-long battle with Breast Cancer. I won’t go into detail but as you can imagine that day changed my life, my sisters, my dads, my grandparents, my whole families life forever. Life’s never been the same, life will never be the same, but my life will always be lived in the best way possible to honour my mum and to keep her kind and caring spirit alive.

Sadly, my mums good friend Monica passed away one week before this years Shine Walk. Another family affected by Cancer, and a beautiful woman taken from our lives. Monica always had the best smile and was so caring towards everyone she knew.

Me walking the streets of London isn’t going to cure cancer. The amount I’m trying to raise is just a drop in the ocean. But that figure, if you can help me get to it, could make someone else’s battle with cancer that little bit easier, it might make a family stronger, it might even be the difference to ensure someone wins their personal battle.

Please don’t donate more than you can afford. I know times have been tough during the pandemic and that’s not the point. Give what you can and don’t feel you have to just because someone else did. If every friend, family member, colleague and student I know gave £2 I would meet my target easily. I fully appreciate there’s some good people out there that donate to every charity drive they see but on this occasion please don’t if it will put you in a pinch.

This ones for you Mum, and for everyone I know who has been through or is going through the same thing, and everyone I don’t know who needs the support too.

Thanks in advance to all of you that back me with this!

Together, we will beat Cancer.

Walking for Emma Bentley (07/06/1972 - 24/05/2006), and Monica Purdey x

Nathan (aka Mr Bentley/Sir)

The FitBit tracker will show how many steps it took to complete the event on the night.

All the money raised will be going to Cancer Research UK which has, and will always be, a charity close to my heart. Everyone knows someone who is battling cancer right now or someone that has already. We’ve come a long way towards defeating it but we’re not there yet. It is thought to currently cost approximately £40,000 to support someone with cancer for one year.

The route:

1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s ground breaking work. Donate to my Giving Page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

Breast cancer

With almost 140 women diagnosed every day, breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. And, although rarer, around 350 men are also diagnosed with breast cancer every year. The good news is more than two-thirds of women now survive 20 years or more. Help Cancer Research UK find new ways to diagnose and treat the disease.
