Running for Tony

My target 240 miles

We are Taking It On this November

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and We are Taking It On.

After starting the year feeling hopeless in our Dad’s fight against Pancreatic Cancer, myself and my family are pushing ourselves to run/walk /cycle 24 miles each in 24 days to raise money and spread awareness in memory of my amazing Dad. 

We will all be taking part either running, cycling or walking 240 miles in 24 days between us, so please support us all in achieving our goal!

It’s unacceptable that more than half of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer die within 3 months. A timeline we have had the misfortune of experiencing firsthand.

Please support us and our fundraising. Together we can make a difference and fund world-leading research to find that breakthrough in new treatments and improve the speed of diagnosis.

Pancreatic cancer is tough but together, we’ll Take It On.

Halfway there!

Over halfway with our miles and only a short way away from reaching our new target of £2,000! Thank you all so much for your donations and support so far. 

We have less than 100 miles to go and I know we can do it. Looking forward to World Pancreatic Cancer Day on Thursday 19th and seeing lots of buildings in Nottingham lit up in Purple to shed light on this disease.

Look out for the lights at landmarks such as Wollaton Hall, Green's Windmill, Queen's Medical Centre, Meadowhall Sheffield, and the A.W Lymn's offices and use #PurpleLights2020 if you post photos of them! 

Keep on running....

A successful day of walking and running for the family today... a 4 mile walk and a 1.5 mile run down! Taking our total miles to 32 so far. We got this!

Over £1,000 and counting!

Only 6 days into November and we have already raised well over £1,000 to go towards research that will hopefully one day lead to a test to detect pancreatic cancer!

Thank you so much to everyone who has shown their support so far with your donations and lovely messages!

Smashed the target!

I just want to thank you all for your donations so far! With an original target of £500 we have already smashed way past that and it’s not even November! It means so much to us to have your support and your money will hopefully help in creating a simple test that could detect pancreatic cancer.

We all can’t wait to start this challenge on Sunday and to raise awareness of this awful illness throughout the month.

Again, thank you!
