My dad died of bowel cancer in Ireland 4 years ago. Last year I decided to hold a raffle at work in aid of Bowel Cancer UK and raised £2300. So this year I am aiming to raise £2011 for Bowel Cancer UK, ?2011 for The Irish Cancer Society and ?2011 for Castleblayney Cancer Society (my hometown). I ran 4 half marathons so far this year, preparing for the Nottingham half marathon and finishing with the Dublin marathon. So far, I've raised £4500.
