My story

[p]These are hugely challenging times. As a cancer researcher, leading a group at Cardiff University, we are extremely fortunate to be funded by several wonderful charities including Tenovus Cancer Care and Cancer Research Wales, who have been amazing in their support of our research. We recognise how difficult these times are for the charity sector, and are therefore keen to do our bit and raise much needed funds for these fantastic charities.[/p][p]Hence, we came up with the @baton4cancer initiative, so that we, as researchers, can give back to the fundraisers who work so hard to support our work. The idea is that we take the baton from the fundraisers and run researcher led fundraising activities for those chairities. [/p][p]In May, we have our first fundraising event. My team (@virustinkerer) and I will be passing the virtual baton and looking to run 1000 miles in May #1000MilesInMay. My personal target is an eye watering 200 miles...for someone who at the start of the year couldn't run for 5 minutes, and who even now hobbles everywhere...this is going to quite a challenge! We very much hope that this will be the first of many fundraising challenges, and the hope is that once our challenge is complete, we will pass the baton to another group who will set their own challenge and choose their own cancer charities to support. We aim to #PassTheBatonForCancerResearch across the length and breadth of Wales, with teams across the country taking their turn to raise funding for vital research.[/p][p]Our target is a very modest £1000. That's £1 for every mile. An absolute bargain. Plus, you'll get to see a fat researcher (me) sweat. A lot.[/p][p]Thanks for reading, sharing and hopefully donating. It means the world to us.[/p][p]Alan Parker.[/p][p][br][/p]
