Throughout the month of July, Kira Young, a Legal Secretary within our Family Law and Wills & Probate Teams, will be running 1 mile every day. Cameron Hill, our Residential Conveyancing Paralegal, has vowed to triple this, by running 3 miles every day to fundraise for Cancer Research UK. Throughout the month of July, Kira will have successfully run 31 miles, and Cameron, 93 miles. Through this initiative, they both hope to raise £200.00 for this fantastic charity, raising a total of £400.00!
Every mile ran, and every penny donated, will contribute to helping Cancer Research UK to reach their goals of achieving consistent progress and discovery of new ways to prevent diagnose, and treat cancer. In the last 40 years, fundraising has enabled cancer survival rates to double, and by 2034, Cancer Research UK aim to reach their goal of 3 in 4 people surviving their cancer. It is because of people like Kira and Cameron, who selflessly pledge to take on challenges to fundraise, that results can improve for patients even faster.
When we asked Kira why she chose to take on this challenge, she said: “I am wanting to take part in this challenge to raise awareness and hopefully a little bit of money towards this incredible charity. Not only have I lost grandparents to this horrible disease but someone so close to me will be going through a tough journey! Every little helps, and I am so thankful.”
Hodgkinsons are incredibly proud to be supporting Kira and Cameron on their mission, and we aim to help them to raise as much as possible. Every penny raised will go to Cancer Research UK, to help fund life-saving research in the aim of beating cancer sooner.
Throughout the remainder of their challenge, we will be publishing information about Kira and Cameron’s challenge across our website and social media platforms, so you can keep up to date with their journey!

Together we will beat cancer.
