In memory of my Nana Jean I am taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

In memory of

Nana Jean

My Story

In October 2019 we lost our beloved Nana Jean. I recently took up running & have almost completed Couch to 5k. I have often thought, while I’m running along trying not to collapse in a heap, how impressed my Nana would be with my fitness & weight loss journey. So I decided what better way to keep myself motivated & to raise money for this very worthy cause than to do Race for Life in her memory. I realise to many running 5k is not a massive challenge but for someone like me who was very overweight & nearly collapsing after 60 seconds of running to start with this is no easy task. Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives. 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 groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
