Story

So anyone who knows us will know we're not exactly seasoned runners. Jess actively hates it; her favourite activity is sitting down and she prefers to take the train. Emily hasn't run anywhere for many many months and once pretended to have a sprained ankle to avoid a 800 metre run that was sprung upon her at school.

Perfect candidates for a 10k.

We're doing this for a lot of people, because like most families we've lost people we love to various forms of cancer. But we're mostly doing this for our Dad, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in August 2014. He hasn't started treatment yet, but when he does we suspect it won't exactly be comfortable. So we're going to forgo the sitting down for now and make ourselves distinctly uncomfortable to raise money to help him, and everyone else who's struggling. 

(Jess's secondary aim is to look like Kim Kardashian.)

Please give us some money. In return, we'll post ridiculous photos of us trying to run around Exeter.

Don't forget to add Gift Aid

If you're a UK taxpayer, please remember to tick the Gift Aid box as this will increase your donation by at least 25% at no extra cost to you.

Sponsor me now, and help me show cancer that hell hath no fury like a woman in pink.
