I lost my dad to cancer in 2010, followed in the next few years by my grandad and auntie. Cancer is indiscriminate. It doesn't care about age, race, gender or lifestyle.
The race for life is usually a 5k run, but I'll be going one step further by running a 5k for each of the family members I've lost to cancer, all on the same day. For anyone who knows me, you'll know I've been very unfit for most of my life, making a challenge like this very much out of my comfort zone. However, the challenge is nothing compared to facing cancer or living in the aftermath of losing someone to cancer.
Any help you can give towards a fundraising goal, mine or someone else's, is greatly appreciated. If you could just spare the price of a pint at your local you'd be making a difference.
After a year where vital cancer trials have been delayed, the Race for Life is more important than ever.
That's why I'll be taking part in a Very 2020 Race for Life. Every pound you can donate will go towards Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me today!
