Why run for Cancer Research UK?

Woman at an event

Not long after giving birth to her second daughter, Rachel was diagnosed with a rare cancer that affects only 1 in 3 million.

After having my appendix taken out, I didn’t need any other treatment, but the one side effect of cancer I was left with was anxiety. I started running to try and help with the anxiety I was experiencing. I started running by myself, then joined a local running club and did a few 10k races and half marathons. I was the one who used to bring in notes to get out of PE when I was at school, if I can take up running and do the marathon, anyone can!
