This September I will be doing a half marathon’s in memory of Sharon, who sadly passed away from breast cancer in December 2016, as well as my Auntie Val, Grandad Bowker and all those others throughout the world who have also all been lost to, or suffering with this horrid disease. You can read more about Mike and Sharon’s story and why he started Cancer Ninjas here.

Cancer is something which ends up touching everyone at some point in their lives – and breast cancer runs in my family, meaning that it’s something that my mum, sister and aunties/cousins keep on top of together! Anything you can do to help out with the amazing work that Cancer Ninjas do will be hugely appreciated – as you’ll probably know I very rarely ask for this kind of thing, so please do donate if you can, it’s an absolutely amazing cause! Unfortunately, I can’t make the main Shine walk on 22nd September, but will be doing my own half marathon walk alongside Mike and a couple of other Cancer Ninja heroes on the 15th instead!

Each year Cancer Research UK’s scientists get closer to beating cancer, and they’ve helped double survival rates in the last 40 years, but we can’t stop there. Only with our continued support can they turn this research into breakthroughs that save millions of lives.

Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s ground-breaking work. Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure.

Your details are safe with Cancer Ninjas and all money donated will be gratefully received by Cancer Research. Please donate what you can now, it will be hugely appreciated. If you can please remember to Gift Aid your donation too, its an extra 25% for nothing!

If you have any friends, family or colleagues that would also help us in our fight against cancer please do share my page. If you have come directly to this page, please do look around the Cancer Ninjas website and sign up to their newsletters for future fun and events.
