Update: Pace for Papworth 2019

UPDATE: I have been informed by Papworth Hospital Charity that due to the low number of registrations for Pace for Papworth 2019 the event has needed to be cancelled.

As i have already had a significant amount of sponsorship money donated and with the promise of more, I have decided to complete the event independently.

The original event was due to take place on the 6th October 2019. I will be completing the event on the same date but will be completing 10K at Ferry Meadows. The original event was due to take place in and around the Addenbrokes Medical Campus in Cambridge..

10K is further than the original event planned, however I wanted to give myself a little bit of a bigger challenge.

If you were planning on sponsoring me, please continue to do so and help me raise some money for this great hospital. You can sponsor me via the Just Giving link below.

Pace for Papworth 2019

Update: Pace for Papworth 2019 has been cancelled, however I am still taking part in the event independently. Read More.

After completing the London Bridges Trek (25K) last year, this year I have decided to complete a few smaller activities. The first of which is ‘Pace for Papworth 2019’.

If you follow my blog or me on social media you will most likely know that I have previously been a patient of The Royal Papworth , undergoing treatment and lung surgery.

This means I have seen the great work this hospital does. In fact, without them, I’m not to sure where I would be with my health. It is for this very reason I like to try and give something back to them every few years.
