Robin Hood Half Marathon

Breakthrough

I'm not much of a runner, but this year things will be different! I'm aiming to raise at least £300 and awareness for Breakthrough Breast Cancer by running a half marathon. To this day I've never set foot in a gym, so this is definitely going to be a challenge!

Sadly we all know someone who's fighting cancer, I'm lucky enough to say that my mum fought breast cancer and won. I'm also hoping to raise awareness, to remind all the ladies out there to check themselves regularly for any lumps or bumps (and the guys too!)

Not everyone will be aware but I found a lump on my left breast last March. I went to the GP, who referred me to the clinic where I got it checked out. It turned out to be a cyst which they drained there and then. The staff were helpful and kept me at ease at every step. So I urge anyone, if you're in any doubt go get yourself checked out. Catching cancer early is the best way to beat it.

You can sponsor me online through Virgin Money Giving.

I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations. Much love x
