Team story

[p]On September 21st 2019, FORDY RUNS for TEENS UNITE will take on the most epic adventure by[/p][p]competing in the Run Ragnar Relay.[/p][p][br][/p][p]This challenge will see our team of Everyday Runners tackle a 170(ish) mile course that snakes through[/p][p]picturesque towns, rolling fields, and the most beautiful collection of white cliffs you've ever seen. Each[/p][p]teammate runs 3 “legs” with each leg ranging between 3-11 miles and varying in difficulty.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Entering this unique, overnight relay means our team will be doing night-time runs, turning a spacious[/p][p]van into a temporary home, and most importantly raising awareness and money for Teens Unite.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Fordy Runs is for the Everyday Runner and taking on this challenge will hopefully inspire other runners[/p][p]who are hitting the pavement training for their first marathon or Parkrun, going from the couch to 5k or[/p][p]just to clear their heads, that if we can run 170 miles then everyone can achieve their goals and DO[/p][p]SOMETHING AWESOME![/p][p][br][/p][p]WHY TEENS UNITE?[/p][p]Today, seven teenagers in the UK will hear the words ‘you have cancer’. Seven more will hear them[/p][p]tomorrow and seven more the day after that. At a time of fear, isolation and loneliness, we bring 13-24[/p][p]year olds who have been diagnosed with cancer, together. We support young people from diagnosis,[/p][p]through treatment, recovery and into remission. We understand that cancer doesn’t stop when treatment[/p][p]stops; the effects of a cancer diagnosis can be long-lasting and often life changing. The young people[/p][p]we support often say that being classified as ‘in remission’, is almost as daunting as being diagnosed.[/p][p][br][/p][p]As the focus on becoming fit, well and ‘cancer free’ is replaced by the question ‘what next?’, it is difficult[/p][p]to simply return to life before cancer, but Teens Unite puts the stepping stones in place to rebuild a life[/p][p]beyond illness. We enable young people, whose lives have been impacted by a cancer diagnosis, to[/p][p]socialise with others their age in a similar situation, so they can support and encourage each other,[/p][p]share their hopes, fears and experiences and live the fullest life possible. We understand that cancer[/p][p]doesn’t just effect the person diagnosed, but those closest to them, which is why we offer support to[/p][p]family members too. Our siblings days, along with our Mother’s Day and Father’s Day celebrations,[/p][p]provide opportunities to meet other families in a similar situation.[/p]
