You can now book you place on the Keswick/Coniston to Barrow Walks on Saturday 7 May!
Why should you do it?
You may remember we told you about the fantastic Kristel Kemp from Barrow who has signed up to run the Coniston to Barrow to say “thanks” for the support we gave her mum Wendy, last year.
Well, Team Kemp now has an incredible 20 members all of whom are joining her to walk or run the #K2B or #C2B on 7 May for us, for a variety of reasons including 14-year-old Max Hazlehurst.
Max said: “I got into running because I enjoyed it at primary school when my year 6 teacher Mrs Norton introduced us to the mile-a-day challenge and I've been running ever since. Sadly, Mrs Norton passed away from a brain tumour so I want to raise money to help a cancer charity in her memory.”
Kristel herself has been delighted by the support from her family and friends.
“There is a total mixture of speeds and ideas on what we want to get out of the day. Some runners and some happy plodders. Our youngest walker will be Charlie at age 11 - ranging up into the 50s age bracket. One thing I've promised everyone is that I'll be on the finish line from when I'm done to cheer everyone home!
“We all have our own reasons for supporting CancerCare in this way. But every one of us knows someone who has fought cancer. I'm getting lots of messages about training walks and targets. It's lovely to hear everyone fired up for their own personal challenge!”
