Sally's 2.6 challenge

By Sally Evans

My 2.6 marathon challenge

On the 9th May 2020 it will be 1 year since I lost my husband to Pancreatic cancer. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about him and I miss him so much, even more so as I often wonder what he would make of this pandemic and lockdown situation! 
So what better way to mark the anniversary of my fantastic human by running a marathon in his honour. It will keep me from going crazy as the lead up to any anniversary that you don't want is always a tough thing to deal with. Also it will be a great way of raising awareness of this horrific Cancer.
Pancreatic Cancer kills 24 people every day and the survival rate is extremely low. Mark battled Pancreatic Cancer for 6 months which is good going as it is such an aggressive Cancer. If only the symptoms were easier to get diagnosed perhaps survival rate could increase...
So I've decided to run a marathon over the course of 10 days which will help me to deal with the 12 month anniversary as well as raising vital funds for a great charity. I will be running 2.6 miles everyday on my treadmill for 10 days solid which will clock up to a marathon distance at the end. It's something I can focus on but at the same time do something good too.

If feel you could donate anything I would be more than grateful to you.

I'm taking on The Big Step Forward for Pancreatic Cancer UK

Pancreatic cancer is a tough one. Tough to diagnose, tough to treat and tough to survive. Together, we can change that.

Research breakthroughs give us hope and will save lives. The funds I raise will have the power to make that possible. Every step will support world-class researchers to speed up diagnosis and improve treatments. By walking together, we can create change to save lives.

Mark thought he was stressed, and had pulled his back at work. These are signs of pancreatic cancer. You never think it will happen to you or your family. Help us to raise money that will target, specifically Pancreatic cancer to find an earlier diagnosis and more hope of tackling such a deadly cancer.
