Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On 3rd October 2021, I will taking part in my second London Marathon and so I am reactivating my page from 2018 with the aim of raising my total to £2000 for the amazing charity, CoppaFeel!

I continue to be inspired by the work CoppaFeel do and since running the marathon in 2018, one of my closest friends was diagnosed with breast cancer in her early 20s. This shows just how important it is to know your body and seek help if you notice any changes. Get to know your normal by checking out CoppaFeel's resources here: https://coppafeel.org/

Lots of love to you all ❤️ and keeeeep running 🏃🏼‍♀️

I ran my first London Marathon in April 2018 in aid of CoppaFeel, a charity dedicated to helping everyone stand the best possible chance of surviving breast cancer by educating individuals on the importance of getting to know their boobs/pecs.

Three very special women in my life have battled against cancer; both my grandmothers sadly lost their fight but fortunately due to early diagnosis and treatment along with tremendous courage my mum is winning her battle and as a result has been there to see my brother and I reach key milestones.

Therefore not only am I excited to take on the challenge of completing the 26 miles in the best time I can but I am also keen to raise as much money as possible and, more importantly, raise awareness amongst all my friends and family, both male and female, of the work CoppaFeel do and ask that you be proactive in knowing your bodies and having the confidence to speak out if something doesn't feel right.

Check out the work CoppaFeel are doing and sign up to Boob HQ for monthly reminders to check yo'self by visiting their website today: https://coppafeel.org/.
