I’m trying to contact as many people as possible. It’s those dreaded words “please sponsor me”.
I’m walking 5km with Paula Radcliffe on May 6 in Battersea Park to raise funds for Cancer Research UK. She is recovering from an operation on her toe – hence the walking bit and the reason she is not competing in the London Marathon – but she will still have the edge over me.
I, as some of you will know, have a vested interest in their research having been diagnosed with cancer
two years ago. Being in remission I can vouch for the fact the drugs they develop do work!
All donations gratefully received – no matter how small.
It’s probably the first time Paula’s supported someone actively on drugs. I just hope there are no testers at the end of the course.
