Story

Last year, me and my sister Emily signed up for the 10km. Unfortunately, due to emergency surgery, Emily wasn't able to compete, so I reluctantly ran the race alone (in torrential rain, cheered on by an equally soggy father). After months of recovery, Emily now feels strong enough to give it a go this year, and I'm going to be there to support her, regardless of how much I despise running. 

I'm doing this particularly for our dad, who was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2014. He's been a total inspiration for the whole family, and as much as I complained last year and will inevitably complain this year, 10km is nothing compared to the battle he and so many others are fighting every day.

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.
