We're raising as much as we can to beat cancer, to help early diagnosis and to improve treatments.

In memory of

Everyone who has suffered from Cancer, and remembering my mum, Kate McDonald

Thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page.

Two friends in a boat rowing to beat cancer!

My good friend Scott Leitch and I will attempt to cross the Irish Sea by rowing boat in July 2018. This is to remember and celebrate the lives of everyone who has been affected by cancer. Neither have us have ever rowed this far before. The voyage is 28 miles across the notoriously difficult Northern Channel.

Cancer is happening right now, which is why I’m fundraising right now for Cancer Research UK. There’s no time to lose!

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