Race For Life 2014

This Sunday I slipped on my running shoes and went and participated in the Cancer Research UK's Race For Life. For anyone that doesn't already know, the Race For Life is a huge event which takes place in many parts of England every single year. Thousands of people raise money for research to help beat all of 200 types of cancer. We are getting closer and closer every day to more and better cures for this horrifying disease and without the money and support from the public, the research would not be possible.

Altogether my Mum and I managed to raise just over £600 which feels like a massive achievement as our goal was around £300. I managed to run the 5K race in a respectable 27 minutes which I am very pleased with and I am so proud to have been part of race with such a good cause behind it!
