As you may know, 2012/13 were tough yearsÂ for our mums with them both undergoing surgery, mine having a lumpectomy after DCIS was diagnosed in a routine mammogram and The Boyfâ€™s mum under-going super high tech brain surgery to remove, what was thankfully, a non-malignant tumor. Â Following this weÂ wanted to raise some funds to help give something back to those who cared for & supported our families.
We would like to thank you all for the donations you made to Â Kingâ€™s College Hospital Charity & Macmillan Cancer SupportÂ over the course of 2013 & 2014. Â The Boyf and I ran many miles, completed our first marathons and in total raised Â£729.50. Â Special thanks to the friends of Gill who donated a total of Â£244.50 in offline donations.
This period has been life changing for me, I never considered myself a runner (a sprinter yes but anything longer than 200m was a bit too much effort) but by the time I had completed my first 10km race I was hooked. Â I will continue to run for fun and race for enjoyment!
