My story

[p]I've been looking at new ways of keeping fit and I've long thought about running the London Marathon. Although my ultimate goal is 'simple', to run the Marathon, I thought it would be a wasted opportunity if I didn't try to raise some much needed funds for a worthwhile charity. I wracked my brains & thought of some obvious charities, but I wanted to help a charity that meant something to me.[/p][p]I finally chose 'Children with Cancer UK' because I knew of a little girl that had cancer, or more specifically, she had a rare brain tumour. She fought far longer than was ever expected of her, over 3 years, but unfortunately she lost her battle and sadly, as a result of the damage caused by the cancer, Claudia passed away 5 years ago on 25th October 2014; she was only 8 years old. Her family still raise money, specifically for the Childrens Brain Tumour Research Centre at the University of Nottingham, which is a very worth while cause. However, I feel I should support an all encompassing charity, which is why I finally chose Children with Cancer UK...[/p][p]We need to stop cancer from stopping our children...![/p][p]Claudia Elizabeth Burkill 16/02/06 - 25/10/14[/p][p]Here's what you'll be helping with;[/p][p]Every day 12 families in the UK receive the devastating news that their child has cancer. Through funding vital specialist research, Children with Cancer UK has done everything in its power to give these children the best chance to survive. [/p][p]With your support Children with Cancer UK can fund over 60 research projects across the UK accelerating breakthroughs to help drive up childhood cancer survival rates and find kinder, more effective treatments to reduce long-term side effects. This ground breaking research saves children's lives and would otherwise go unfunded. [/p][p]Knowing treatment can be especially challenging for family life, Children with Cancer UK also helps fund patient family accommodation near hospitals so families can stay together during their children's treatment. We also organise unforgettable days out for children and their families to create memories that will never be lost. [/p][p]But we still have so much more to do. A single child dying from cancer is one too many. With your support, we are helping to create a future in which every child with cancer survives and experiences the life changing moment when they ring the end of treatment bell.[/p][p]Thank you for helping to save the lives of children with cancer and keep families together.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Children with Cancer UK. [/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p]Update: If you can't donate financially then do not fear, you could donate directly by selling your unwanted DVDs, CDs, etc...[/p][p]https://ziffit.com/en-gb/basket?resourceId=30fc66b7-012f-49cc-b0bd-6d2a4bafbabd&pageId=1&fundraiserActivityId=1133236[/p]
