Hi you,

First of all, YOU ARE AWESOME and THANK YOU for making it this far in your interest in our cause. Thank you for taking time reading our facebook event page, or by stumbling upon this link through other channels which we are advertising our efforts.

Dear friends, family, friends of friends, family of friends, friends of family, family of family....

In April 2014:

We (Tze Ni and Leyla) will be running the full 42km (this is very very far! and on average 4-5 hours of continuous running) of the Paris Marathon. It will be the VERY first time either of us are attempting this distance, and frankly, we are TERRIFIED.

And to top that, we are challenging ourselves to raise a minimum of £1000 EACH for charity. The charity that we chose- Association of International Cancer Research (AICR)- funds research for the prevention and cure of cancer. We strongly believe that research goes a long way in the fight against cancer, and with your help and support, we could help save so many lives

:) 

We will need to raise £1000 each by February next year, and here are some ideas on how we go about achieving that target (feel free to suggest, seriously we are desperate)

1. Bake sales
2. Bag- packing
3. Bucketing
4. (Here's a fun one) Carrying out dares and challenges posted on our page in exchange for generous donations ;) The dare/challenge can be done in Paris/London so let your creative juices flow!
5. Organizing a charity run (this is still in the works)

and LAST BUT NOT LEAST:

6. Donations, if you believe in what we do, then support us in taking up this daunting challenge of running a full marathon + fundraising effort.


Wish us luck!! THANK YOU!!

Much love,
Tze Ni and Leyla

**WHAT YOUR SUPPORT CAN DO**

 


 If you are wondering how much to donate, we have here a short guide to 'What your support can do':

£10- will enable a research scientist to grow cells in a test tube. This will help further their understanding of how cancer cells function.


£50- will cover the cost of analyzing a sample cancer tissue. This will imporve our scientist knowledge of how cancer develops.


£100- will pay for a computer analysis on the structure of a new cancer drug. This will enable our scientist to move closer towards developing a potentially life-saving medication


£1000- will allow a top scientist to examine the make- up of a cancer gene. THis is an essential part of helping our scientists understand how this disease spreads and kills- and how it can be beaten.

Thank you!! :')))

LOVE,
Tze & Leyla
