Charity Registration No. 1068395

Story

In June 2017 my big sister got diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma. Since that moment I've watched her take on every single chemo session, seen the countless tablets she has to have, countless injections, shaving her hair, being hospitalised numerous times for infections, blood clots in the brain and god knows what else thrown at her these past 6 months.... and she's never stopped smiling or stopped being positive. She is my absolute rock and inspiration and the strongest lady I know. So I am running 26.2 miles to raise money for this amazing charity and also as my way to say thank you to everyone who has helped and who are continuing to help Kaye get back on her feet.  

Some more about Lymphoma Association below:

We are the only charity in the UK dedicated to supporting people affected by lymphoma. Every 28 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with lymphatic cancer. You can help make sure that everyone coping with a diagnosis gets the best possible information and support, treatment and care. With your help we can be there for everyone who needs us. We all have the potential to make a difference, there are so many opportunities for you to get involved and help support people affected by lymphatic cancer. Thank you.
