Debbie suddenly became ill with stomach cramps in October 2011 and was then diagnosed with bowel cancer. Since that day, she has overcome huge obstacles in her fight against cancer.
It is for this reason that she is inviting all the teams from the Simple Netball League to join her in the Race for Life Manchester, a 5K Run at Heaton Park on Sunday 22 July 2012 at 11:00am.
Debbie has invited not only the netball teams from Simple but also netball teams from other leagues across Greater Manchester. She is aiming to get at least one person from each team in Manchester to represent their team or club.
The group will be called the Netball Nutters and it’s guaranteed to be a very enjoyable day.
This event is not competitive, so you can walk, run or jog the course at your own pace. Those who jog or run often complete the 5k course in about 30 – 45 minutes and walkers take about an hour but there is no pressure to finish in a certain time.
The aim is to raise money for Cancer Research and for the Beechwood Cancer Care Centre, as well as encourage participation in this event.
It would be great to see lots of players from the Simple Netball League running (or walking!) on the day!
