We pioneer life-saving cancer research to help us beat cancer


I hate running. It's hard and it hurts and you have to motivate yourself to do it when there are millions of other things to do instead (like Netflix, always Netflix).

But this year Cancer Research UK got in touch and asked me to be part of their Race for Life blogger team. At first I struggled to say yes... Obviously I want to help charity (I'm a professional fundraiser, I love charities!), and obviously cancer is terrible (every TWO minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer - that's terrifying), and obviously Race for Life does amazing things (since 1993 over seven million people have taken part, raising over £513 million to fund life-saving work).... but running is kind of difficult?

Yeah, I didn't struggle with the decision for long. So, I've signed up for a 10k in Edinburgh in June, because I figured if I was going to try this, I might as well aim high. I went for my first run yesterday using my old friend Couch to 5k, and got out of breath running for one minute. I think this is going to be a difficult journey - but I'll blog about it along the way... and I have a terrifying goal ahead of me, which I'm hoping means I'll be motivated by fear.

If you want to help me fund life-saving work in preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer, please sponsor me (and add gift aid to be even more generous, without any extra cost to yourself).
