The Big Step Forward Virtual

Late last year my family got some devastating news

Late last year my family got some devastating news, my mum was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She is an incredible woman, and has dealt with it all amazingly considering how overwhelming it is and how intense her treatments can be.

On July 25th my brother, sister and I will all be partaking in an event to raise money on behalf of Pancreatic Cancer UK where the funds will help to cover costs for testing & research.

Despite my sibs covering a larger distance by walking, I will be running instead. I will be completing a 10 km run around the not so flat area of Harrogate.

I regularly manage 5km runs a few times a week (which I am always exhausted by), so this distance around the ups & downs of my local hilly terrain should still be a genuine challenge.

Any donations here will contribute to covering costs for:
- £29 could help develop a simple test for pancreatic cancer by 2024 by paying for an hour of research
- £40 could fund a health professional attend a study day
- £100+ could fund a day or more of research for a Research Innovation Fund project

I'm fundraising for my Mum

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.
