ive just signed up for it ohhh err!
My friends and family are gobsmacked! im a biggish lass but have decided to get fit and what better motivation than getting fit for a charity event for cancer.So this afternoon im off for a looooong walk in my effort to get fit and healthy lol
As you probably know you get a pink thingy(technical term honest Tongue ) , myself and my daughter are taking part though we havent lost anyone to cancer or know anyone who beat it.So we have 2 dedications free, anyone here want me to walk in anyones honour?(yeah i said walk not run!) i would love to carry their name for you.This year my aim is to walk it, next year jog and if i make that then the year after run!
I have an online sponsership form also, would i be allowed to link it here?
Anyway wish me luck! i will post up photos when im recovered hehe

You'll have a fantastic time - My wife has done the Race For Life for the last 5 years and loves it and raised over a couple of thousand pounds for Cancer Research UK in the process - she's running this Sunday (18th) down in Falmouth , Cornwall. We support the race because my mum died of cancer and my brother also had a really tough time with this disease, It's SO important to do what we can - Have a great time Michelle. ( Sorry but all my spare cash has gone to my wife !! )

Thanks both Grin
I am really excited about this as is my daughter whos also taking part who is 9 years old.
Ive never done anything like this and am suprised at myself.As i said i havent lost anyone to cancer but i hear so many heartbreaking atories it really made me think and evaluate myself and my life.
Good on your wife its inspiring to hear of someone doing it every year!

My daughters are doing it again this year. It's a great occasion tinged with some sadness for some. I took a photo of the mass warm up last year here . Fantastic sight.

Good luck
