Race for Life Update
Thank you to everyone who has sponsored me so far, I’ve been so impressed with everyone’s support, it’s been amazing!
This past weekend on Canada Day I held a Canada Day BBQ to raise funds and thank those who have already made donations. We raised a whopping £83! Heaps of people came, the weather was gorgeous, the food delicious – the only disappointment was England’s defeat to Portugal in the football. Oh England! Will you ever win a penatly shootout!
The day after the BBQ we did our race. It was a sweltering 30 degrees out, and the water sponsors had pulled out at the last minute! We managed to walk our 5km in about an hour though, and had an impromptu gathering back at ours with the BBQ leftovers. It was amazing being with these hundreds of women, all with back signs about who they were walking for. It wasn’t so much a physical challenge, as an opportunity to come together and support such a worthy cause.
Thanks again to everyone who has supported our team. And for those of you who meant to send in a donation but just haven’t managed, here’s your chance!
As a charity, Cancer Research UK rely overwhelmingly on the success of fundraising events such as Race for Life to continue our life-saving research into the prevention, treatment and cure of all forms of cancer.
