Re­mem­ber­ing mum

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - NEWS -

CLOVERDALE res­i­dent Jess Dun­bar will put her fit­ness to the ul­ti­mate test this month as she takes on the 21km half marathon in the Run for a Rea­son to raise money for Can­cer Coun­cil WA.

Af­ter los­ing her mother to ovar­ian can­cer when she was young, the now 24year-old knows all too well the im­por­tance of rais­ing funds and aware­ness.

“Mum’s my in­spi­ra­tion for many things in life, in­clud­ing my de­ci­sion to take on the run and raise as much money I can for Can­cer Coun­cil WA,” she said.

“Most peo­ple know some­one who has or has had can­cer and oth­ers have even lost some­one close to them – like me.

“That’s why ev­ery cent that goes towards can­cer re­search and sup­port­ing those af­fected is a step in the right di­rec­tion.”
