I'm fundraising to raise money for Cancer Research UK

My lovely Mum - one of the kindest people I've ever known - died of breast cancer in March 2016. She was a tireless public servant and faced her disease with an inspiring dignity and grace, despite it blighting the last 5 years of her life and dominating her retirement. My Dad is currently bravely fighting bowel cancer as well, so I'd like to do something to help eliminate this unforgiving illness one day.

Now, I'm not a very good runner. At all. But I've been trying and would like to be able to run 15km by Christmas. I'm running 3 or 4 times a week and get about 0.5km / 1km better a week. I can currently run 5km (pretty much) but would like an incentive to keep getting better and I know my Mum would approve. I still think about her and miss her every day.

I will put pictures of my progress on here and I use the Strava app to map my runs so you can follow my progress. You don't have to, of course.

I know many people who have had their own battles and I'm sure everyone knows someone who has suffered from it. If you could give even £1 it would be a lovely gesture. I honestly can't think of a better cause.
