Raising funds for Skin cancer
I’m running London’s 2019 marathon with the British Skin Foundation because I have seen the devastation of skin cancer first hand. I’m running in memory of Connor Cockerham, who lost his life to melanoma in 2014, and in strength with those who have lost someone they love.
We are supporting one of our gym members in his challenge to step the distance of a climb of Mount Everest in 24 hours.
Raising this page as a way to support a charity that is vitally important and affects a member of my family
My family have decided to raise funds for the British Skin Foundation as we would like to help fund research in finding a cure for skin cancer and raise awareness. We are doing this in memory of our beloved Mum/ Nanny Barb who sadly lost her battle with skin cancer.
To raise awareness of skin cancer
I just feel not alot of people know about all the different skin problem and want to bring about awareness
As an eczema sufferer myself, I appreciate the efforts of BSF in helping those with skin diseases and how much of an impact their research and support can make on a life.
As a Dermatology Nurse Specialist, Skin cancer screening Practitioner and Medical Aesthetic Practitioner, I love everything about the skin. Our skin should be embraced for the amazing organ it is. (imperfections as well)Raising awareness of the numerous skin conditions that can affect us and: embrace these, understand them, treat these, manage these, and be proud and confident to wear our skin with pride!!
I'm fundraising for the British Skin Foundation as I personally suffer from Serve Eczema, which got really bad last year with a trip to the hospital where the Doctor said I was lucky that I got treatment when I did because it could have been a different outcome. I've done multiple Half Marathons but never a full Marathon so doing it for charity to give something back.
