And thanks for taking the time to look at my fundraising page.
This will be the fourth year I run 5k-10k for RACE for LIFE for CANCER RESEARCH, and I need your support once again.
In the past few years I run for both my beloved Dad&Mum-in Law, who respectively passed away of very aggressive lung and pancreatic cancer.
This year I will be racing alongside a group of wonderful women I have the privilege to know; we are called “The Female Wits”. We will run in loving memory of a friend: Claire Chate-Fawcett who, after fighting lung cancer for more than 9 years, at 33 years old, has just lost her battle and passed away a few weeks ago.
She was a most talented, accomplished, committed, beautiful, caring, brave and lovely woman who, despite her 4th stage disease was always cheerful, caring for others and had run several 5-10k race for life in the past.
Almost one and half year ago she met the love of her life, Peter; they fell deeply in love and got married last year.
The picture I chose of Claire is of her in medieval costume at Dover Castle, and this is the way I love remembering her: a beautiful, witty warrior, because that what she was: a courageous and compassionate amazon.
And if she lost her battle against cancer we may not and cannot lose the war!
Please SPONSOR me for this great cause and for Claire.
Every penny counts and please, let’s make every step I take in this race count. You will always have my gratitude for this!
