Story

Thanks for visiting my JustGiving page. This September, I’m taking on Shine, the marathon night walk, to help Cancer Research UK fund their life-saving work. 

I'm grateful to be able to walk a marathon. I'm grateful because so many I know aren't able to as they've lost their lives to cancer. I'd be grateful if you have the means and desire to contribute to my fundraising.

My Mum and Dad died 22 weeks apart of lung and liver cancer respectively. My work mentor died a year later of pancreatic cancer. My Aunt Mary was the first I knew to die of cancer from lung cancer. My friend's wife in her 40's died of ovarian cancer leaving 3 daughters. An older acquaintance lost her husband and 2 of her 3 children to GI cancers. Luckily my 2nd cousin and ex mother in law both live on after being treated for breast cancer.

My 16 week training starts on Monday: 4 times a week with long training walks once per week – walking 4 and 5 hours at a time, and that’s at a speed of 4 miles/hour so help keep me motivated by supporting my walk or joining my long walk on Sundays.
