I Ran 5K For Cancer Research!

It was unbelievable how many people were there taking part...


I Did it...I ran 5k to raise money for Cancer Research. Ive spoken quite opening before about losing a friend to Cancer and what the charity means to me. 

This was the first year I got around to doing Race For Life so I didn't really know what to expect. Driving though Moat Park, Maidstone. To the field that was allocated for parking I couldn't believe my eyes... It was unbelievable how many people were there taking part. 


It was emotional to read everyones back plaques with who they were racing for. We saw a teenage girl running for her mum, A mother and daughter team like ourself running for their husband/dad. Some had pictures of their loved ones pinned to them and one family in particular that we saw, were running for a girl no older then 8. It was heart braking. 

I herd the Heart Dj mention that everyone that was there had raised over £30.000..... Amazing! I felt so good to be apart of that and give a little back to such amazing charity and cause. 


Its a shame that Cancer is still affect people however with the money raised.. I hope the success rates keep raising. I can't wait to take part and do it all over again next year!

I want to also just take this time to thank everyone that sponsored me, who wished me luck and for you kind words and messages. It meant so much to have you all backing me. 


Thanks For Reading
With Love
