Race For Life

Yesterday I found my self doing something that I never thought I would do, I signed up for a 5k Race For Life to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Now its not because I don't do anything for charity that this was a shock, it more the fact that for most people that know me, know that I'm not really one for any type of exercise. I won't be running, there is no way I would be fit enough in time to do it but I will be walking it and BG will be joining me.

I can't take credit for deciding to do this, it was my best friends idea, her and her sister and their daughters will be walking in memory of their father, they ask me to join them and I agreed. One of my sisters wants to do it as well so it will be a family affair.

So on the 29th June 2010 we will be walking 5k in the Peterborough Race For Life, me and my sister are walking in memory of our Grandad who passed away 13 years ago this month.

This is the part when I for your help, I have a sponsorship page where you can, if you like sponsor me. I know times are tough so any small amount will be gratefully received, my target is £300.

Now I'm going to get really cheeky, if you feel like tweeting this, or even writing a post on this that would be fantastic. You can also add a widget to your blog or share on facebook, click here for more information on how to do that.

I would like to say a big thank you in advance for anything that you do to help me with this.

I will be setting up a Race For Life page, which I will update with how I'm doing on targets and to say thank to everyone that helps.

Thank you again
