Melissa’s Race for Life!

Created Wednesday, June 27, 2018

Over the past few months Melissa, our Marketing Manager, has been training for her first ever long-distance run. On the 22nd July at Westpoint, Exeter, Mel will be taking part in a 10k Race for Life run with the mission to raise a minimum of £250 for Cancer Research UK.

Like many others, Cancer has affected our personal lives and Race for Life offers the opportunity for communities to come together and raise money for vital research to help fund treatment and hopefully one day a cure for Cancer.

Mel is not a natural runner and before March 2018 she hadn’t run continuously for 6 seconds, so 6 miles is going to be quite a challenge. But after the recent passing of a family member who had fought tirelessly against cancer, she decided that it was time to also fight and, alongside the millions of other people, start fundraising to help fund vital research.
