Running to raise money

Jade Flynn, our Community Network Co-ordinator is taking part in this year’s Cardiff Half Marathon this Sunday 27th March to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.


The money Prostate Cancer UK raises through fundraising goes to improving the lives of people living with

 prostate cancer and helping to find better treatment and better tests that can spot fast growing cancers early and could be used in a screening programme to save thousands of lives.
Jade is running the half marathon because her partner, Dan originally signed up for the race, but unfortunately as the race date had to be postponed due to Covid, he could no longer take part. Instead of dropping out of the race, Jade decided to take her partner’s slot and run the half marathon and raise money instead.
Jade said:
“I wasn’t expecting to be running a half marathon, so I’ve had to really up my training to make sure I can finish it. Luckily I have a great training partner, my dog Nala, who is so much fun to run with. Raising money and awareness for such an important cause keeps me motivated, and I hope that I can reach my target of £250.”
