Why do Team Lets Fight This do what we do?
We are NOT elite athletes by any stretch of the imagination, and sometimes we ask ourselves why we are doing it when it would be so much easier to succum to the lure of the chocolate and the couch.
Then you would be reminded of someone who has been touched by Cancer or is in the middle of the Fight either themselves or family members, and it brings it all home to us WHY we do it.. because WE CAN, and WE MUST.
If we only raise £1 in sponsorship then that is £1 towards a cure,
During the Race 4 Life on Sunday it is so humbling reading the dedications as to why people are doing the same thing - although sometimes it is hard to run when there are tears in your eyes, but it really hits home how MANY people are affected by Cancer.
This was our first Race 4 Life (not Joesgirl74 shes a veteran !) but I can assure you it will not be our last.
I know a few of the team-mates said that their legs were sore and stiff on the Monday but when you think about it - to be fit and strong enough to DO the race in order to suffer with the stiffness the next day - WHAT AN AMAZING FEELING
Coming soon we have a guest blog post from 'across the pond' and her personal experience of the Komen for the Cure events
