Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives.
I've been lucky in that although cancer has touched my life, I've never had to face or deal with the day to day challenges and struggles that so many have faced.
Having 'dabbled' in running for a year or two now and never really got into the swing of it, this summer I've decided to challenge myself to a 5k and can't think of a better reason than to raise money for Cancer Research at the same time.
While 5k may not be far to some, it will be the farthest distance I've managed to run and I would be very grateful for any donations to help me on my way.
