Abby to continue raising money for charity
This July will see gap technical's Senior Technical Consultant, Abby Pegg take part in the Chester 5k as she aims to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
Abby has already hit her £150 fundraising target but is continuing to raise funds for a cause that is close to her heart. Abby has chosen to raise money for Cancer Research UK as her nan died of breast cancer before Abby was born, meaning she never got the chance to meet her.
Cancer Research UK is the world's leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research, fighting cancer on all fronts, finding new ways to prevent, diagnosing and treating it to save more lives.
Ahead of the race, Abby said "I never got the chance to meet my nan, so I wanted to take part in the race to raise money, so that in years to come, other people don't miss out on the opportunity to meet family members. I've never taken part in anything like this before, but I set myself a target of losing two stone recently, which I've achieved, so this is the next challenge I'm wanting to complete."
Abby added "I usually struggle to walk five metres at the moment, so I joined a gym a few weeks back and have been doing lots of cardio training, so hopefully it will help me complete the race without collapsing!"
