Rebecca’s Story

“I’m running the 2020 Cancer Research UK London Winter Run because I want to help find a cure for cancer.”

In 2016, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
In 2017, I beat it.
In 2018, it came back for another go, in my lung and my brain.
In 2019, I will beat it again.

In 2020, I want to celebrate that and show cancer it won’t win by taking part in the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run 2020. For every one of us it hits, we’ll fight back in force and we will find a cure.

Right now, I can walk around 6000 steps a day – that’s around 5km (all-in, from getting up to going to bed) so it’s going to be a big challenge! Check out updates on my progress on my blog:

These days, everyone is asking for donations and most are for great causes. We’re a generous generation! But sadly we can’t donate to everything, even if we wanted to. But cancer is a killer which affects almost everyone, and we’re so close to fining a cure, I’m super proud to be contributing to that breakthrough!

Every penny we raise will get us closer – funding research, providing treatment and giving people like me a chance to make a difference to those who have to fight.”
