Story

I had forgotten that I had applied for the Cancer Research London Winter 10K run months ago and said I would volunteer at the race if I wasn't fit to run (which I'm not).  Then my race number arrived:  7759 - 7/5 was my dad's birthday and 79 would have been his next birthday, so I took that as a sign that I should run it in his memory.

I have already raised money and have been volunteering for CRUK so I am going to run this race to raise money for the Great Oaks Hospice, whose staff cared so compassionately for my dad in his last days at home - and they rely solely on voluntary contributions.  I know January is not a great time to be asking for sponsorship but if you can spare even a couple of pounds, it would be much appreciated as every little helps, thank you so much.
