My story

[p]In early December 2017 my mum Yvonne was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Within 2 months she had passed away. She was sixty four years old.[/p][p]Of the most common cancers Pancreatic cancer currently has the lowest survival rate - 93% of people diagnosed will not survive beyond 5 years. Funding is vital for ground breaking research into early diagnosis and new treatments.[/p][p]In support of [url=https://www.pancreaticcancer.org.uk/]Pancreatic Cancer UK[/url], my friend Richard and I will be taking on [url=https://www.ultrachallenge.com/peak-district-challenge]The Peak District Challenge 2019[/url]. This is a 100km / 62.1mile Ultra marathon. The event will take place on Saturday 13th July 2019 and will comprise of a figure of 8 across the hills and valleys surrounding Bakewell, Derbyshire including 1800m of hill climb! We estimate it will take us between 12 & 14 hours to complete and will burn approximately 7500 calories. We are both training in earnest for this challenge and will need to complete several marathon length runs to prepare.[/p][p]Your support in helping us to reach our target, and in helping Pancreatic Cancer UK to support those affected by Pancreatic Cancer, will be greatly appreciated.[/p]
