Race for Life

I'm so proud of my baby (Lianne, aged 10), she's enrolled with her cousin and her aunt to do the Race for Life in June 2008 for Cancer. She's already started running with Sarah (her cousin) and she's gone round the block a few times with her brother Lewis in tow (during daylight hours I might add). She's such a caring child, always thinking of others and she said she would like to do this for her Granddad Ray, who recently died (2007) and my two granddads (Granddad Alex and Granddad Stanley, who died of Cancer).

I nearly cried when she asked me if she could do it as it was something she felt quite strongly about. I'll take loads of pictures and post them when the race is over to let you know how she did. If anyone would like to sponsor her...no matter how great or small the amount, please email me at moonstone1405@hotmail.com, hopefully between them, Lianne, her cousin Sarah and her auntie Dianne will make a difference to someone's quality of life. Good luck girls... xxx

Lianne wants you both to know that she thanks you very much. She's really looking forward to it and is keen to raise lots of money to help people who need it.

Her Cousin Sarah did the race last year and she managed to raise £300 alone. Her dad went round all the pubs with a bucket collecting money to sponsor her. Fortunately, he's known in quite a few pubs in this area!! Hee Hee Hee

She's much braver than I am, I'm not sure I would have the stamina to run the Race for Life. Just thought I would also mention that her other Auntie, Sherree, is doing the race as well but she's walking it rather than running.

Shaz said...

Wise woman, I don't think I could run it either!

Fae said...

I bet Sarn could... She's been really quiet on Skype lately, I assume she has been busy rubbing again. Glutton for punishment if you ask me, did she tell you how far she has to run each time??? The first night alone would've killed me, or at least put me off enough for me not to go back.

Ha ha ha - I think Fae mean RUNNING not rubbing! I have limited myself to WALKING this week as my poor old body couldn't take any more than that. But I will be out jogging again soon enough, you'll see.

Shaz said...

I wish I could flipping fly, I can tell ya! x

HEY SARN, STOP THAT RUBBING! Of course I meant running. What was I on??? Must've been too much wine that night! Or just maybe lack of sleep! You go Sarn, I'm really proud of you, you've got more bottle than me.
