You may have been following our recent quest to raise money for Cancer Research by taking on the Race For Life. Well the big day has finally arrived, the boutique is closed (for this Saturday only, sorry - all for a good cause!) We've swapped our heels for running shoes and sacrificed last night's cocktails in exchange for carbs. Although not the strictest of girls, we've been doing our best to make small changes to prove to ourselves it's possible to make a big difference.
We were originally inspired by Hannah Foxley's story of survival, but since we signed up for the race, we learned that she sadly passed away. This only made us more determined to raise money for such an important charity, to help others affected by cancer continue with their battle. Here's a little insight into our journey and progress so far...
We're even going to keep up the running after today. Kal is thinking of entering the 10k challenge this summer, and Gemma has secured herself a place in next year's London Marathon!
Thank you SO much to all of our friends, family and fans who have sponsored us so far. We each have our own personal inspiration for running the Race For Life so your support is greatly appreciated.
P.S - if you've not donated already and would like to give whatever you can - here's your last chance!
See you at the finish line!
