We are doing this half marathon event in memory of all of those we have known who have suffered through this dreadful disease. Your sponsorship money will help fund research into fighting cancer …. and every little helps towards that goal. The Shine Walk video on this page gives a flavour of the bling, ‘glamour’ and scale of the event we are taking part in.
In particular we are raising money in recent memory of Sharon, our wonderful sister-in-law, whose life was taken by breast cancer late last year, and also Gill, a work colleague of Nick’s, who lost her long battle with cancer earlier this year. Both of them wanted donations to Cancer Research rather than flowers so this event very much supports their wishes.
We are aiming for a relatively modest amount on this page as Nick is also joining a sub-group of LTN Ninjas, who are work colleagues of Gill as well so that we can do a joint campaign for sponsorship from work. Apparently £260 would cover the cost of a trial for a day to test new combinations of drugs, to improve treatments. However, we would be very happy to smash our personal £ Goal if you feel able to sponsor us.
Thank you – we’ll let you know how it goes.
