I’m raising as much as I can to beat cancer

In memory of

Dad and all the others we have lost

This year I will be aiming to complete not just one, but two challenges to help raise money for Cancer Research UK.

At the grand old age of 40 I have decided to try a bit of running and will be taking part in the Guildford 5k race for life on 28th July. Not the furthest distance I have covered for charity, but the first attempt at running a decent time!

Then, to round off this years efforts I will be aiming to walk the North Downs ultra 50k challenge, further than I have attempted before and probably my toughest course yet.

Myself, my family and my friends are seeing people struggle and losing people to cancer every day. This is why I am doing this, to try and help raise money for cancer research to try and find a cure before we have to lose more people we love.

There’s no time to lose!

Donate to my page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
