Race For Life



It's almost that time of year folks, when thousands of pairs of breasts will be bouncing their way along the women's Race For Life in aid of Cancer Research UK.

This will be my 4th consecutive year of running in the RACE FOR LIFE. Unlike my previous years in Birmingham, I shall be racing around around the medieval Coombe Abbey in Coventry, Warwickshire on 9th July 2008. My running number this year, 1348, is not a particularly lucky number, at least it wasn't for the Black Death victims in 1348.

However, let us not brood over plagues and pestilence. Let us ponder on our pockets and purses and on how many pennies pounds and ppp.. I mean dollars, euros, and ruPees we can donate to this worthwhile cause.

Please pop along to my fund-raising page (click here).

I'm dedicating this years' race to my friend Margaret Griffiths, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006. Following surgery, radio therapy and chemo therapy, she is here to tell the tale. She recently released a CD, 'The Essential Spirit of Edith Piaf' and the CD is available from Margaret's website, http://www.troikaproductions.co.uk/

I'm proud of you darling ... actually DOING something is always better than talking about doing something - well done again ... I love you xxx

Good for you, I shall pop over and take a look at your fund raising page shortly.

Sorry you were unable to leave a comment - hopefully it's fixed now as I had some comments left over night. Blogger did seem to be playing up a bit yesterday...!

Thanks Trevor....x

Cheers Steve, I won't try and re-publish my comment - somehow the moment is lost but I'll contribute to your next conversation.

Hope life is good in Leamington :-)
