Breastfeeding – an age old debate. With hosts of stories in the media wrangling with the pros and cons of breastfeeding, it can be difficult to remove the fact from the fiction. And while we know that there can be some important benefits for both mum and baby, the ‘breast is best’ message often leads to those who don’t breastfeed feeling unfairly judged.
Our corporate partner Mrs Crimble’s have been the official sponsor of Breast Cancer Now’s student fundraisers since 2013, providing branded merchandise and delicious gluten free treats to support their fundraising efforts.
As part of the sponsorship programme, in 2015 Breast Cancer Now and Mrs Crimble’s launched the Innovate Now scheme. This ‘Dragon’s Den’ style scheme offers university RAG societies the opportunity to compete for the prize of seed funding in order to deliver a more ambitious fundraising event than they would otherwise be able to.
With just two months to go until my second Virgin Money London Marathon, my training has been a bit of a stop-start, love-hate affair.
A few months ago, I suffered a tendon problem in my right ankle which is still giving me problems. Luckily my biomechanics coach knows of my fundraising and is truly doing all he can to help me make it round the 26.2 miles through London.
