Celebrating My 40th Birthday by Getting Muddy for a Cause
Zoe Moore, a member of our pastoral team, shares her story about an upcoming event!
“They say life begins at 40, and this year, I am embracing this sentiment by taking on a thrilling and meaningful challenge. As I approach this milestone birthday, I have made a bold decision to participate in the Race for Life Pretty Muddy event. Not only will I celebrate my special day in an unconventional way, but I will also be raising funds for Cancer Research UK, an organisation dedicated to saving lives and making groundbreaking strides in the fight against cancer.
Why I’m Taking on the Challenge
“Cancer is a disease that affects so many lives, and it’s time we join forces to make a difference. The statistics are staggering: 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. This reality fuels my determination to support Cancer Research UK and contribute to their vital work. By participating in the Pretty Muddy race, I hope to raise both awareness and funds to support ongoing research, innovative treatments, and ultimately, the lives of those affected by cancer.
The Pretty Muddy Race for Life
“The Race for Life Pretty Muddy event is no ordinary race. It’s a thrilling obstacle course that pushes participants to their limits while getting down and dirty in the mud. And what better way to celebrate my 40th birthday than by tackling this challenge head-on? I am committed to getting as muddy as possible, pushing myself beyond my comfort zone, and crossing that finish line with pride, knowing that every step taken brings us closer to a cancer-free future.
How You Can Help
“I am reaching out to you, my friends, family, and everyone who believes in the power of community and the fight against cancer. If you have any spare pennies you can contribute, I would be incredibly grateful for your support. Every single pound you donate makes a significant impact on Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work.
