Marie’s Story

“In 2004, I was diagnosed with breast cancer – I had to have surgery and radiotherapy followed by hormone therapy for five years. I’ve always been a keen runner, and this experience has encouraged me to take on a wide range of different challenges. I first took part in the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run 10k in 2015 and it was great! It was a beautiful, cold sunny day and the best part was running past St Paul’s Cathedral, with the bells ringing for Sunday service. I managed to beat my fundraising target, raising £290 for Cancer Research UK to help fund life-saving research. Now, I’ll go for anything challenging, stepping outside of my comfort zone, because you never know what’s around the corner.”
