GETTING READY TO WALK…
Fabulous fundraiser, Karen Liesching-Schroder is busy helping to spread the word about the Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk on 28th September. Every week Karen takes part in the Southend Park Run to raise awareness about mouth cancer. She is on a drive to encourage all her running friends to turn up to our charity walk. Recently the Southend Run Director, Alex, asked Karen to share her story to a crowd of over 400 runners.
Karen, who was diagnosed with tongue cancer 3 years ago and does lots to increase awareness about head and neck cancers. Many of the runners at the recent Southend event didn’t know Karen had had mouth cancer, but are now coming to the walk.
Thank you for sharing your story Karen. We look forward to seeing you and your friends at the Mouth Cancer 10KM Awareness Walk in Hyde Park at the end of the month.
