My story

[p]Hi, my name's Alice and I am raising money for the North Wales Cancer Appeal (NWCA) part of Awyr Lass Blue Sky. [/p] [p]Last year I was asked to attend a charity ball with my partner in memory of his grandmother who passed away. She was a  truly wonderful woman who touched so many peoples lives. I only knew her for a few years but it only took a few moments of her company to realise how proud of her family she was and how much love she has for them. She really was the heart of a family and she will be greatly missed.[/p] [p]At the time we were unable to attend the charity ball but instead, I pledged that I wanted to raise money for a cancer charity by taking on a true challenge, which would require significant commitment and hard work. As such, I decided to apply for the London Marathon. [/p] [ul] [li]Awyr Las is a North Wales based NHS charity which through public gifts is able to provided additional care and treatment which can make a huge difference to patients lives.  It was formed by Magaret Smith in memory of her husband Ron who died of cancer. [/li] [li]To date, NWCA has raised over £3million providing essential equipment for the cancer treatment centre including a radiotherapy machine, a swallowing workstation and most recently a new CT machine.  [/li] [/ul] [p]To date, the London Marathon fundraising has contributed over £60,000 to the appeal and I am hoping to add to this-this year. [/p] [p]So ...... as such the post-Christmas belly dinner reduction challenge has begun and I am now 10 weeks into my training. I am running 3 times a week. [/p] [p]My target is quite high, but it's for an amazing cause to help some of the many people who are suffering from cancer.[/p] [p]I would really appreciate any support you can offer and thank you for any donations. You [lt]span[gt]can sponsor me through Virgin Money Giving and they will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[lt]/span[gt][/p][lt]div id="p7IGMwrapper_2" class="p7IGMroot-wrapper" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;"[gt][lt]div id="p7IGM_2" class="p7IGM02" style="margin: 0px auto; line-height: 1;"[gt][lt]div class="p7IGM_wrapper"[gt][lt]div class="p7IGM02_layout" style="border-style: solid; border-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0); line-height: 1; overflow: hidden; position: relative; z-index: 2; padding: 10px;"[gt][lt]div id="p7IGMtoolbar_2" class="p7IGM02-toolbar-wrapper IGM-toolbar-top" style="text-align: center; position: relative; z-index: 9; line-height: 1; padding: 0px 0px 10px;"[gt][lt]ul class="p7IGM02-toolbar" style="margin: 0px; overflow: hidden; padding: 0px; display: inline-block; height: 20px;"[gt] [lt]li style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; list-style-type: none; float: left; vertical-align: top;"[gt] [/li] [/ul] [lt]/div[gt] [lt]/div[gt] [lt]/div[gt] [lt]/div[gt] [lt]/div[gt]
