On the 16th of September Sophie Hughes and Shelley Routledge are running in the Great North Run.
Sophie Hughes writes:
“On the 16th of September I will be running in my 5th Great North Run as a part of The Mr. Men and Little Miss Team for Children with Cancer UK.
“The charity aims to determine the causes, find cures and provide care for children with cancer. Over the past 23 years the charity has helped to drive childhood leukaemia survival rates up to over 80 percent.
“If you would like to sponsor me you can do so on my fundraising webpage at: uk.virginmoneygiving.com/sophie12. Thank you for your support.”
Shelley Routledge writes:
“I’m running the Great North Run in September for Cancer Research UK. I’ve chosen this charity because of the amount of people this disease affects including my own friends and family. Their work is crutial to saving people’s lives. Over 800 people are diagnosed with cancer each day. More than 420 people lose their lives to this disease each day. Survival rates have doubled in the last 40 years and we all need to continue fighting for a cure.
“Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
