On May 14th Mitch, Jonny & Josh will be running Leeds Marathon in aid of Pink Events.
In 2021 the boys climbed the Yorkshire Three Peaks and raised over £9,000 for Pink Events - a leeds based Breast Cancer charity providing funding to Cancer Research UK and the Breast Care Unit at St.James’ Hospital. It’s a cause close to the boys’ hearts with the charity being run by Mitchell’s family and they want to carry on fundraising through another challenge - the boys’ first marathon!
2019 brought a tough time for the Pink Events family. Mitchell’s Aunt, Kimberley, was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time, the first being in 2003. Her extremely intense treatment carried on through 2020 however we are glad to say this has been successful and Kimberley is now doing well and in recovery.
In May 2021 the family received more devastating news. This time Mitchell’s Mum, Sarah, was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time after first being diagnosed in 2009.
Our plea to you is to support us by donating whatever you can to help us reach our target. Every little helps and we’d love to be able to hit our target on time. Pink Events has always been extremely grateful for the generosity of its patrons and we are sure we can keep the momentum going! We’ll keep you up to date with our training and keep an eye out for updates via the Pink Events facebook page.
Thanks for taking the time to read our page and please do keep us in your thoughts on the big day!
Mitchell, Jonny, & Josh
