    Hi everyone - again!

    Some of you will know that I have done a few things for charity over the years and then had to stop because of injury, a stress fracture and damaged peroneal nerve stopped my long distance running years ago.

    Recently though, one of my wife's best friends has been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and so the running shoes have been dusted off and a team of around 40 people - all shapes, sizes and ages - will be dragging themselves around the greatest city in the world to complete the Manchester 10k in aid of this wonderful charity.

    ** update and very sad news **

    Our lovely friend passed away this morning, aged 50, from Pancreatic Cancer. Her lovely family is devastated and she leaves a husband and two girls, 19 and 14.

    Rest in peace my friend **

    Please read our story and chuck a couple of quid my way, every single penny is really appreciated.

    * As this is a team page, can you PLEASE make sure you put 'AVF' next to your donation so I know who it's from and who to thank when this is all over.

    It's only 10km, I can do it with one leg surely !!!???

    Thanks for looking ....

    Steve

    So sad to hear that mate, do I donate at the link above or is there another one?

    Completely forgot about it. Let me know and I’ll wing a donation your way.

    Edit, I see other AVF on the donation list, so donated.
