    This was my first ever race! I loved every part of it! And already looking to do my next fundraiser run.
    I decided in November last year that I was going to take part in the race for life in June, in memory of my dear friend who lost her battle to stage 4 aggressive breast cancer at such an incredibly young age, 29.
    It was an emotional day for me. I ran alongside others like me, who were grieving their Loss, holding onto Hope for their fighters, and showing unbelievable Courage for/as survivors. I ran with tears in my eyes as I watched runners support each other, encouraging each other. I saw the pain, relief, grief and happiness in their faces as we all reached our finish points. I had tears of admiration and pride for every single person there.
    I am Proud of every one of us!
    My advice would be - go for it! Whether you walk, jog or run, we are all around to encourage you to just keep going! We are all there for the same reasons!
