Celebrating 2023 with a focus on STRENGTH!
I have set myself a personal challenge for 2023 and am taking part in Run2Cure Neuroblastoma. A week before my 43rd birthday, I'm going to run my first HALF MARATHON! Something I never thought I would or could do. But during the last two years "learning to love running", I have discovered a strength within me to surprise myself with how far I can go!
Run2Cure is a charity fun run and raises funds for the aggressive childhood cancer neuroblastoma.
Neuroblastoma is a cancer affecting young children with the average age being just 2 years of age and survival rates for aggressive neuroblastoma being just 1 in 2.
So in addition to my own goal, I want to make a difference to the young children affected. If you are able to make a donation, be it a few dollars or more, I would be very grateful.
The "hard work" is doneSunday 26th Mar
Finishing up week 9 with a 12K long run.
We are entering "Race Week" now and getting ready for next Sunday, 2 April 2023 Run2Cure!!!!!!
The nerves are definitely settling in, outweighing any excitement that I felt last week ;-)
My final week of asking for fund raising..... So if you are still waiting to support the cause, please click on the donation button on my page. Every dollar I raise helps make a tangible difference in the lives of those who need it most.
Babies and toddlers are impacted by this aggressive cancer are relying on people like you and me – so I’d appreciate anything you could chip in.
