Today is the day. I’ve spent weeks badgering friends and family, posting on Twitter and Facebook, generally shaking my virtual collection box in the direction of anyone who’ll listen. My aim was to raise £200 and at last count my total was sitting at £205. I know I have a few more sponsors to collect too, so I’ve well and truly smashed my total. All I can say is thanks. If you know me and what my family has been through in the last few years, you know how much this means to all of us.

I know £205 isn’t much, in the grand scheme of things, but it could help to make all the difference. To help find a cure for this horrible disease and stop people from suffering and dying unnecessarily. What I’m doing is nothing, a minor blip on cancers radar. But I’ll put on my trainers and my pink vest and hope that by walking a few miles in the Sunday morning sunshine, I’m doing something to help.

Denice, Rob, Grandad, Lorraine. This is for them.
