Reading 5k 2019

Sun 14 Jul 2019 - Sun 14 Jul 2019

Everyone has been affected by Cancer, 3 of my grandparents were taken by it, my Dad survived it and multiple others. I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer sooner.

My Story

As you will all know, if there’s a lift, I’ll take it, escalator, I’ll ride it. The bar is 1 mile away? Uber it. For the past 13 years my main focus has been about drinking, eating and enjoying myself. I don’t expect that to change anytime soon, however to kick me into changing slightly, I thought I’d do it for a good cause. I looked at the 10k but with only 7 weeks notice and a test run, 5k will be enough to near kill me in current shape. To stop me pulling out of the race, I’ll be doubling the total donation pot if I don’t finish/turn up to the race. Please donate for either the good cause or to watch me suffer. Thanks,

Cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years. Consistent progress is being made but improvements to technology and ground-breaking work offer new opportunities to find different ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and improve survival rates even further.
