Working with Cancer Research UK to find the cure

Every year my work, Wolters Kluwer, does fundraising for Cancer Research UK as a part of our 'values day'. This year values day (17th October) is the same day that I start my next 'adventure' - the Lon Las CYMRU 250 mile Ultramarathon from Holyhead in North West Wales to Cardiff - so I thought I would dedicate my walk to Cancer Research and hopefully raise some money for a great cause.

My last long walk didn't go so well. 230 miles into the 250 mile Thames Ring in June, I had to pull out with a leg injury that eventually resulted in me spending a week in hospital. While in hospital I met a guy who was told that, due to his cancer, he would never be able to live alone again. I will never forget overhearing that conversation and I'm hoping that I can raise money to help prevent other people being told the same news in the future.

Please donate.

Thanks for your donations. Unfortunately my walk didn't go to plan. There was heavy rain in North Wales which meant I was saturated and frozen from the start until I was forced to stop at about 135 miles. Of the 35 athletes who started the race, 28 have withdrawn so far! Thanks again for your donation to Cancer Research.
