Leesa Perry

SMH Half Marathon 2019

I'm supporting cancer research and prevention through the Can Too Foundation.

1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. This means that potentially someone we love may have to battle cancer, and that’s a statistic that needs to change. I recently lost a very dear, close friend to this disease and am determined to at least make a positive difference in this area in the hope that people in the future may avoid the pain of this loss.

By training for the half-marathon in May and gaining your sponsorship, I am raising valuable funds that go towards innovation in the prevention, care, and control of cancer. Since 2005, Can Too Foundation have trained over 15,000 participants, raised over $20,000,000 to invest in 158 one-year cancer research grants.

It's been about nine years since I ran a marathon (see picture below!), and I haven't run distances since then... so it's not an easy task. Feel free to join me on one of my training runs ;-)

Thank you for your support!

May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand. Amazing that you're doing this Leesa, all the best xxx
