Story

UPDATE!  I ran the Great North Run on Sunday 18th September, 2011, in 2:30:31.  Thanks to everyone who's donated, or just wished me luck!  I'm really pleased to have got round the course, and even more to have hit the fundraising target for Beating Bowel Cancer.  There were 85 people running for B.B.C. (I met about 8 of them during and after the race) and thousands more running for other charities: it was great, and very moving, to be part of this!

===

I started running in November 2010, and in March 2011 I ran the Liverpool Half Marathon.  At the second mile, I spotted some people running for Cancer Research.  One girl had a vest with "Running in memory of Jack" on it, and I was moved to tears for the next mile.

My mother went through surgery for bowel cancer last year, and is now recovering.  I'll be doing the Great North Run to raise money to help more people like mum to be treated successfully. And in memory of Jack.

 

Here's the blurb:

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

Raising money for

Beating Bowel Cancer

Beating Bowel Cancer

Charity Registration No. 1063614

Bowel cancer is the UK's second biggest cause of cancer deaths. Around 1 in 18 people will get bowel cancer and, of the 100 people diagnosed every day, almost half will die of the disease. Yet, in over 90% of cases, bowel cancer could be treated successfully if diagnosed early, which is why raising awareness is so important. Beating Bowel Cancer is a national charity for those affected by bowel cancer and is dedicated to raising awareness of the symptoms and ultimately saving more lives.
