Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives.
Almost two years ago I had signed up to run the Bath Half Marathon in memory of my Grandad who was diagnosed with lung cancer and sadly passed away all in the space of 6 weeks. The day before the run, I dislocated my knee so never got to complete it! It’s about time I redeemed myself!
The reason why I’ve chosen this race isn’t just for my Grandad. During the recovery of my poorly knee, I met my other half Steve who sadly lost his mum, Pauline, to cancer. Steve is incredibly emotional when it comes to the race for life because as a man he’s not allowed to take part! In his honour, I’m stepping up and want to run in memory of Pauline too.
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor.
