On Saturday 25th June I will be taking part in the Round Sheffield Run. This is the first time I've taken part in this event, but it's one I've always wanted to do. Having completed the Sheffield Half Marathon back in March, I felt I needed another challenge, so here it is!

I've decided to make this a sponsored event so i can help Jude's family raise some much needed funds for Jude's Campaign. Jude is a Dinosaur and animal-loving three-year-old. He has a thirst for knowledge about how things work and why things happen. He loves Elton John and even received a Christmas card, present and video message from him!

He has warmed the hearts of so many with his smile and attitude towards everything that he has, and still is, going through.

In July 2021 Jude was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive childhood cancer that has a 40-50% chance of long-term survival at diagnosis.

Jude’s parents, Lucy and Arron are currently fundraising for potentially lifesaving treatment, either to get their son into remission or to try and keep the cancer away if his frontline treatment does go to plan. This could cost hundreds of thousands of pounds.
