The Cancer Research UK Walton-On-Thames Committee:
Sam King, Sam Dunsmore, Kate Wilson, Tina Little, Lorraine Butler, Stuart Jack, Nancy Scott, Claire O'Hare and Tracey Reed.
We are a group of parents from Hersham/Walton-On-Thames who have formed a fundraising committee to raise money for Cancer Research UK. The motivation behind the formation of our committee was the loss of our dear friend, and popular local mum, to cancer in May 2008. Many of us have family or friends still fighting this cruel disease - it is this that spurs us on to continue fundraising for vital research, despite our loss.
Our main focus in the last 3 years has been Little Legs for Life - an idea which came from our children wanting to do their bit to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Standing outside their children's classroom one afternoon, 2 mums got to talking about the Race for Life and what a shame it was that boys couldn't take part. "What a pity they don't do a kid's Race for Life" - were words that sparked the idea for what is now called "Little Legs for Life"
