We pioneer life-saving cancer research to help us beat cancer


I can barely believe that it's been over a year since we lost our amazing, and wonderful mam to Ovarian Cancer.  I wish that she could see me now, and know that her fight has given me the strength to fight too.  The strength to regain my fitness, and run.

I'm running to raise money so that one day, nobody will have to watch someone they love suffer the way that our mam suffered.

I'm running so that right now, someone out there gets even just one more day with someone they love, one more precious day that without the treatments that research is creating all the time, their loved one would not have lived to see.

Finally, I'm running for me.  Cancer makes you feel helpless, like there is nothing you can do but watch the suffering.  But there is something you can do, you can help prevent it happening to someone else, by raising money for research.  And you can help prevent it happening to you by improving your fitness and general health.  Running the Race For Life does both, which is why this year I'm challenging myself to run 10k, instead of 5k.

Events like Race for Life are vital in funding Cancer Research UK's life-saving work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer. By sponsoring me, we can unite and create a force that cancer can't ignore.

Gift Aid it!

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 cost to you.

Sponsor me now, and we can become cancer's worst nightmare.

One day we will beat cancer. Help us make it sooner.
