Over the last five years many 2020 Members have followed my story and supported my fundraising activities in aid of Cancer Research UK, together we have raised a fantastic £25,000 so far to fund ongoing research into fighting Breast Cancer in memory of my beautiful wife and soulmate Cazi for which I am truly grateful.
This year we would have been celebrating our twentieth wedding anniversary and after having completed five CRUK Shine Night Marathons, this year, I thought I would take on a new challenge so I have signed up to take on the 100K London 2 Brighton Ultra Marathon over the weekend of 25th and 26th May 2019.
I will be setting off at 8am on Saturday 25th May from Richmond Park London, along with my friend Ellie who has taken on the last few Shine Marathons with me. We have decided to take on the whole 100k distance as a continuous challenge, it will certainly be tough as we will be powerwalking throughout the day and night crossing the North and South Downs before finally crossing the finish line at Brighton Racecourse hopefully around 8am Sunday morning!!!!!
I am extremely grateful for the support I have received over the years it is really appreciated; together we have made a real difference by helping to fund ongoing research into Breast Cancer so that others don’t have to face the journey my Cazi and others have faced. But let’s not stop there I want to continue to build a legacy in Cazi’s name, recently, other friends have been touched by Breast Cancer so I want to ensure that the vital research continues. I have been fortunate to see the incredible work first hand that CRUK Research Teams are doing so please help me by supporting my fundraising efforts.
I know Cazi will be with me every step of the way keeping me going she probably thinks I am bonkers for taking it on!!!
I have to raise a minimum of 50% of my fundraising commitment by the end of March to maintain my place on the Event so I would appreciate any early donations, if any Business or 2020 Member would like to support my London 2 Brighton Challenge 2019 donations can be made securely on line through my Cancer Research Fundraising page:
Cash donations can also be made at Ravenshead Post Office as Linda and the team have kindly offered to support me by having a collecting tin on their counter.
If your Business would be interesting in sponsoring my London 2 Brighton Challenge 2019 and would like any further information please get in touch my e-mail is [email protected]
Please dig deep every pound will help to bring forward the day when we beat Breast Cancer once and for all.
Thanks, Mike Farley
