Run Fat Girl Run

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Hi All,

One of my clients, Kay Bishton has set herself the amazing goal of running the London Marathon in 2011.  She will be part of the breakthrough breast cancer team.

I would just like to say what a great cause we think this is, and if you do too follow the link belwo to Kay’s just giving page.  From all of us here at Foresight Personal Training, we wish you the very best of luck!

In Kay’s own words:-

‘I suppose I should explain what I’m doing and why I need your support!

In July my grandma Betty was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. When I found out I felt useless for not being able to do anything – yet another woman I love has been affected by this evil disease. She has now received treatment and has had successful surgery and is well on the road to recovery. If this had been 20 years ago it would be a different story. This fight against Cancer is getting stronger, research is working and detection is getting picked up sooner because of fundraising but it’s not enough, we need to keep going until we find the cure to beat it!

So, after much consideration (and wine) I decided that I wanted to do something in order to help raise more money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. So what’s on the cards you’re wondering – something drastic, something that I know would be the last thing anyone would expect of a rather curvaceous, unfit, binge drinking 30 year old. I’ve decided to raise money for what I believe is one of the most important charities out there – Yes, I have a place on the Breakthrough Breast Cancer London Marathon 2011 team! Yes, next year’s London Marathon – not a 5k, 10k or a half marathon – no I’ve gone right in for the big one, 26 whole miles through London. (Actually seeing that written down has just made me feel a little bit sick) So my rather ambitious challenge has begun! There’s no turning back – my name is printed on the vest!

In the next 8 months, whilst pounding the streets of Stockport and getting super-duper fit, I’ll be arranging loads of events in order to have a bit of fun and raise much needed funds for this amazing charity. This is where you come in – I need you to pledge your support in any way possible. Attend my events, hold your own or simply dig deep and donate now – a penny or a pound it all adds up! I’ve started a Facebook group “Run Fat Girl Run” so follow the link and join in.

I’ll be doing weekly blogs and uploading rather unflattering Lycra clad photos along the way! I want to do this, I know I can do this – for my brave grandma Betty, her much missed friend Val, for my godmother Joanne, for Shirley and for my friend Cheryl, not forgetting the other women that I know that may face this in the future or who have faced, fought or lost their battle with Cancer.
