    • BreakthroughBC Fundraiser runs onto Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s £1000 Challenge Wall A fundraiser from London visited the Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s Research Centre for the unveiling of the charity’s £1000 Challenge Wall on 17th July. Sharon Williams ran the London Marathon in 2006 in aid of the charity after seeing her mother diagnosed with the disease. Sharon, 44, decided to take up the challenge of raising £1000 for Breakthrough after previously running the Marathon for an autism charity. Alongside receiving sponsorship for the run she also fundraised at work and was able to over £1700. Sharon said: “I am so pleased to have completed the £1000 Challenge. I am staggered by the generosity of people it is through the support of my fundraising that I have been able to come here today and see the groundbreaking work that the doctors and researchers are doing. Completing the challenge was hard work but I am pleased to have seen my mums name on the Challenger’s Wall. “It’s a great achievement and I would encourage everyone else to take part in Breakthrough’s £1000 Challenge.” Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s £1000 Challenge is the charity’s flagship fundraising campaign and encourages fundraisers to come up with innovative ways to raise money. After raising £1000 Challengers are honoured with a dedicated name on the wall at Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s Research Centre at The Institute of Cancer Research, where scientists work to develop pioneering new breast cancer treatments. At the unveiling ceremony Sharon had the chance to see her chosen name on the wall and took a tour of the Research Centre to see how the money raised is being spent. Professor Alan Ashworth, Director of the Breakthrough Breast Cancer Research Centre, said: “Everyone who becomes a Challenger makes a real difference. It is only through the support of these individual fundraisers that we can find new treatments to help eradicate breast cancer for good. We want to continue to make progress quickly and can only achieve this through more people fundraising for us.” The Breakthrough £1,000 Challenge has raised £15 million with over 7,000 people reaching the milestone. The most common ways to make the money are holding fundraising stalls, balls and parties, quiz nights, lunches and coffee mornings.

    • CharlotteMarshall Really interesting podcast Ally - I had no idea how desperate the situation was, nor how many thousands of people had been affected. Its good to raise awareness of this - I'm sure I'm not along in being fairly ignorant of this!
