Racing For Life

Today is the day I am racing for life - well, walking quickly......to help raise money for cancer research :-)


Today I am proud to be a number - I am number 565 in this race.......I am racing today in the name of our friend Minerva........and everyone - because no one is immune to this terrible scourge....And the Biggest Blogger (ie the biggest online sponsor) is our very own Hollywood Star, Naomi - who gets top billing on my shirt......

with my guardian angel CK on my shoulder......But then everyone who sponsored me does get a mention.........
If you still want to sponsor me, you can do this online......Click here.

I'm off to Aginoth's straight from the race, so I'll scrounge a laptop there to report in :-)

Update - done it! And in a respectable 54 minutes and 26 seconds......

Minerva said...

What an absolute star you are..
And I can't tell you how choked up I am at the sight of your tee shirt. Let us hope that the great scourge of cancer is just a little more threatened by what you have done CQ..not just by walking this race, but by holding my hand every step of this awful journey.

Thank you so much, my friend.

Minerva
