TRIGGER WARNING: Cancer, Death, Grief 

The 19th June will mark 5 years since my Dad's passing. My Dad battled prostate cancer for two years, before it eventually spread and took over his entire body, and along with causing many other health complications, inevitably took its toll on my Dad, in mind, body and spirit. 

I can say without a doubt watching my Dad suffer in the way he did was the hardest thing I've ever had to watch, I can't even imagine how it was to experience it! And for that I want to raise money in the hope that others will never have to suffer in the way that he did, or how my family did watching it. 

I can't believe 5 years has already passed, and thought there would be nothing better than to raise money with a 5K run to honour his memory. And just to round things off, I reckon a goal of £500 should do nicely! I plan to do the run on Father's Day, which is the day after his anniversary, so I have 2 weeks to get running!

Thank you for your donations, even just the donation minimum is greatly appreciated! I will be sure to post updates of my progress and will be recording the final 5K run so you can all laugh at how long it takes me (I said I'd run, never said I'd run fast ;P ) 

Love you Dad, hope you're up there laughing at me during every run x
