carla whittle Almost everyone is touched by this disease at some point in their lives whether they have unfortunately have or had cancer or they have a friend/loved one that has this awful disease.
I want to help in any way I can so i am running the Bristol half marathon on Sunday 17th September 2017. I am not a long distance runner, I run/walk to work which is about 3 km each way so this is a mega challenge for me.
I have lost a friend recently she was taken so quickly, she was always so happy even at the end, her bravery and courage has made me feel very humble and appreciate how lucky I am to be alive and well. Myself and friends at work ran the a 5 km obstacle course in her memory and raised money for cancer research i immediately thought 'i want to do this again', so i looked online for events that I could take part in to raise money for cancer research and i found the Bristol half marathon through World cancer research.
I am running this race in Lovely Lisa's memory and for everyone that has been affected by cancer. carla whittle
