Hi wordpress family! My lovely wife Sarah is planning to test her individualistic gardening style & love of sunflowers to raise money for charity. She really needs your loving encouragement and support for this floricultural challenge! Please read all about it below and join me in showing her the wordpress love. 😀
Oh no……With only 5 days left until “Tough Mudder”, Sarah and i went into the woods to try out my new trail shoes and also try and get some photos of me jogging/training for World Cancer Research Fund as they want some promotional shots.
Sarah did an amazing job getting me to run in a straight line…..She had to walk with me to get into position….Then walk away until she was in position. Then after Sarah shouts “GO!” I hopefully run in a straight line towards her(not through her) and she can get some shots.
I’m not sure how she did it…..But it looks like i’m jogging on my own and also looks like i’e been jogging for miles, lol…..Not just 50 feet at a time! 😎 💪🏼
With only 19 days to go until “Tough Mudder”, Sarah & i travelled to Fitstuff in Guildford to buy some new trainers that will act as my new eyes as i feel my way around the course. The lady in the shop was amazingly helpful and these ones fit better than anything i’ve ever tried in my whole life! She even gave me 10% off after we talked about World Cancer Research Fund UK and how prevention is better than cure…..Together we have the power to prevent Cancer for future generations! 💪🏼 😎
I’d really appreciate any support you can give, thanks.
Oh No……It’s happening!…
People who know me?! know that I’ve been struggling and fighting all kinds of obstacles for the past 18 years since being registered blind…..BUT I‘ve never faced obstacles such as these.
I was recently challenged to do the Tough Mudder 5K by Sarah’s nail tech/artist Ashley, who works at Ooh La La Hair & Beauty Salon. I chose the team name HARD AS NAILS and I’ll be competing and raising funds for one of my favourite charities –World Cancer Research Fund
World Cancer Research Fund…..
My lovely wife Sarah works for World Cancer Research Fund and I was stopped in my tracks by one of the statistics she showed me – That a third of all cancers can be prevented… that’s over 80,000 cases each year in the UK alone. This totally blew my mind!
“What??? There are Cancers that I can prevent? I thought Cancer was something that you just got!”
Cancer is a terifying disease and most, if not all of us, either know or have known someone who has had or been affected by cancer.
Many believe that getting cancer is down to your genes, fate or just bad luck, but there are so many things you can do to reduce your cancer risk.
What you eat and drink, how much you weigh and how physically active you are can all make a big difference.
With our support World Cancer Research Fund will be able to learn more about how to prevent cancer – keeping loved ones together for longer.
