I have entered the Great South Run again this year (23 Oct), and have also chosen to run for a charitable cause again. This year I selected Cancer Research UK, for reasons personal to me.
When I was In my early 20's I suffered Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, but with the treatment of radio & chemotherapy it has allowed me to survive this dreadful illness and lead a normal life. Unfortunately I have had family and friends who haven't been so lucky and have passed away, I feel any help I can give to aid research for this worthy cause I will do so willingly. I know this is a nationally recognised and publicised charity, but I believe we all know of someone who has been touched by some form and degree of this illness. If there is anyone that would like to help me support this worthwhile charity, i know it would be greatly appreciated.
After signing up to the charity I have now received my sponsorship info and starter pack from CRUK and like the big kid that I am, just had to try on my running top to make sure it fits (posing in the garden). CRUK provides everything necessary to get me going, but I thought in addition I could use the photo to make up a poster and see if can get it put up on display around the area where I live, hopefully attract some sponsors. If anyone would be kind enough to sponsor me, it can be done by either giving it personally to me or by using my JustGiving page;
JustGiving.com/Frank-Parsons3 where donations are securely transferred directly to the Cancer Research UK charity itself. Thank you for taking the time to read my post. 😎
