My dad’s sister passed away from it in her thirties, my granddad in his seventies. My sister’s best friend beat it a few years ago, my uncle is currently in remission and my boyfriend’s lovely mum has it. Cancer.

Dreaded Cancer. Whether it’s watching someone you love fight this cruel disease or  worrying about your own health… it seems it is everywhere we look. Every two minutes someone in the UK is told they have cancer and the number of cases continue to rise.

But we are fighting back! This Sunday, 9th of June, I am part of a team of mummy bloggers (Mammasaurus, Aresidence and Ana Mum Diary) who will be doing the Race for Life in Nottingham raising money for Cancer Research. I will also be accompanied by Cheryl, my boyfriend’s lovely mum, who will walk some of the way and when she is too tired to walk I will push her in her wheelchair. It won’t be a speedy race but a determined, proud one! :)

As a team we have a target of £500. Can you help us reach it? You can donate to our team fundraising page here.

There is also a £1 text giving donation facility set up so please donate a pound if you can – text BLOG99 to 70070. 

We’ve already kindly been sponsored by Brioche Pasquier who have donated a whopping £250 to our team.

For its first ever UK fundraising campaign to support Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, Brioche Pasquier has launched the first of two on-pack promotions to reach its fundraising goal of £15,000.

The ‘Run with Mum’ promotion, now available on the Pitch range, is to encourage you to run with your children by covering a single child’s £10 entry fee for 1,000 pairs of little legs.

The second promotion, ‘Raise Some Dough’, available throughout June and July across all products, gives you the opportunity to win donations of up to £100 to send to friends or family taking part in a Race for Life event through their JustGiving page – or alternatively you can simply donate to the Brioche Pasquier Race for Life team.

Keep an eye out for the yummy Brioche Pasquier products at the Race for Life events, as every runner will be offered a tasty ‘PITCH’ filled brioche.
