As many of you know, a couple of months ago Ben Langdon and I launched Mile 91. We capture spine-tingling stories that inspire action and encourage giving. Catherine Raynor Communications lives on though and I will still be providing broader communications support to charities, but all of my story-related work – whether that’s making a film or helping an organisation set up its own story gathering team – is now part of Mile 91’s family of services.
Meanwhile, I am about to embark on my own spine-tingling story. I have a place in next year’s London Marathon and I will be running for Pancreatic Cancer UK. Two of my best and oldest friends lost their mothers to pancreatic cancer in the last month or two, and my sister-in-law’s father also died from this a couple of years ago. It is a cruel cancer (aren’t they all?) and I am looking forward to doing my bit to help improve survival rates.
So, this blog is going to get a little bit running obsessed over the next five months. I will still be blogging professionally at http://www.mile91.co.uk/blog (do sign up – it’s great!), but here it will be about the blood, sweat, tears, and blackened toenails! Stay with me, I’ll need your words of encouragement
Fundraising campaign launching soon…
