My name is Hannah, and I am challenging myself along with my fiancè to run the Royal Parks Half Marathon 2017. We will be running this a week before our wedding! Lots of people have advised me against this, for fear I will injure myself, but I am doing it for a fantastic charity called OVARIAN CANCER ACTION.
Earlier this year I worked on redesigning the Ovarian Cancer Action website. Whilst working on this project I got the meet some incredible people who had been affected by this horrible disease. One woman, in particular, Anita who is 80 (She looks 40) has been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer 4 times; brought up 3 boys as a single mother and survived the Holocaust! She was the most positive and inspiring woman that I have ever met. When I asked her what her secret was, she told me that exercising every day helps to keep the mind and body positive. So I have taken on her advice and started to run and exercise every day, and train for a half marathon.
The money I will raise will go towards the research and support that Ovarian Cancer provides. One day they hope to find a cure for this horrible disease that takes the lives of thousands of women around the world!
You can read more about Anita's and other stories on the updated website.
