"I did it! The back garden 7k"

A heartfelt thank you to Ali, who's currently undergoing a major course of chemotherapy but still raised over £1000 for our work by running 140 laps of her garden as an alternative to the cancelled Blenheim 7k event.

She had encouragement all the way from her son Tiago, who we’ve supported for many years. “I didn’t have a time in mind, just completing it was a challenge,” she said, “But Tiago cheered me on every lap. It was great!”

You can still donate to Ali's run here, and if you're feeling inspired, find out more information about taking on a virtual event for us here.
