Proud Mummy moments.....

Hi all. I just wanted to share a proud Mummy moment with you all. Our eldest daughter and our son have completed their first sponsored run today. They did the Manchester 10K run and completed it in 1 hour 4 minutes. They have done it to raise money for Cancer Research in memory of their cousin and one of their good friends who both died of cancer in their 20s. It was a very moving day to see so many people running to raise money for such good causes.



This photo was taken as they were getting ready on this very cold windy day........



........ and here they are smiling and showing their medals at the end of the race.....both looking as though they have only been on a Sunday stroll in the park! I'm so proud of their efforts.

If you would like to help raise the funds you can donate via this link....

Many thanks to any who are willing to support them in raising money for Cancer research.
Their next run is already booked for September....Lake Vyrnwy half marathon!

Oh wow didnt they do well!

What beautiful children you have, no wonder you are so proud of them, its great that they wanted to do something in an attempt to rid us of this awful disease.

I doff my cap to them for doing 10k as I hobbled (a wobbly walk with stick!) a 5k one 3 yrs ago and my little medal swings on my desk with pride!

Well done!!

Well done Mark and Michelle - Annie is quite right to be proud of you both...

Unfortunately my fund raising efforts for this brilliant cause is a DD I set up a few years ago - although I don't break into a sweat doing it - I do admire your strength and determination to do what you did...

In awe -
