I am running my first half marathon, London Royal Parks, on Sunday 13th October, to raise funds for Leukaemia UK.  The organisation funds research to find a cure and improve treatments for blood cancer, and also to help and support families that are affected. 
My dad lost his brother, William, to leukaemia many years ago. William was only 21 and my dad was 13. Significant medical advancements have been made since then but there is still more work that can be done.
If you are able to sponsor me, that would be greatly appreciated.  Rachel Clifton
