I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

Hello everyone :-)

Many years ago, my family had the horrible news that one of our family members had cancer. It’s the worst news any family could ever receive, not knowing if they will beat it, or what will happen. We’re very lucky and my family member beat cancer, and is still beating cancer today. But sadly, we have all lost family members and friends to cancer. I have lost loved ones, work colleagues, and even family friends.

Last year my goal was to walk 5k and raise £50. I beat that target, and I walked, jogged (an ran a tiny bit..) for cancer. It was one of the best days of my life to know that I had made a difference, and hopefully could save someone’s life. I did it for my grandad, who is still here today, and is fighting cancer everyday. It was the best feeling knowing that maybe my money could save somebody else’s grandad one day.

This year, my amazing mum, Jess, is doing the race for life with me this year. We want to raise £100 to help find new treatment and one day, a cure for cancer.

If you can donate even 20p, that would make the world of difference.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and one day, we will beat cancer. 💘
