Cancer is one of the world's biggest enemies. So many people have been affected... and so many have lost lives. The majority of us have been affected- whether it's personally or someone we love.
Thankfully, today, twice as many people survive cancer as they did forty years ago- meaning there is hope. This is all down to people like you and me. People who support charities such as Cancer Research UK. The money that people like us raise helps them make great breakthroughs. It helps them fund world-leading scientific research that will result in more effective treatments.
This year, my mother and I have decided to do the Cancer Research UK's Race For Life as we feel we need to push our own problems away and focus on people with problems much bigger than ours- problems that have a possibility of never being solved without help from people like us.
Race For Life is the UK's biggest fight against caner and the largest women-only fundraising event in the UK. Since Race For Life started in 1994, an incredible six million participants have raised over $457 million, more than any other UK event series raising money to fund cancer research. This has helped to fund the work of over 4,OOO researchers, doctors and nurses dedicated to helping more people beat cancer.
Doing the race is something I highly look forward to. Of course, I can't do this without help. This help is needed by you. I need to be sponsored to participate within the race. My aim is £5O and £5O for my mother, but we really would like to pass this target and raise as much money possible for Cancer Research UK.
This is my online sponsor form. You can be from anywhere in the world to donate and it would mean so much- even if it was only a dollar/pound/euro, it still helps. It would mean so much if you sponsored me and would have a big impact on lives.
I will write a blog post about the race, which takes place on July 15 telling you how much I raised and how the day went.
Thank you so much.
Keep Smiling, Keep Dreaming, Keep Believing.
