Bramley: Leeds 10k veteran raises £36,000 for Breast Cancer Research

By Anne Leng

Fundraiser Susan Wright from Bramley was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992. 

She had a recurrence in 2013 and a further setback early last year. She is undergoing chemotherapy at the present time.

Inspired by Jane Tomlinson, Susan began to take on the Leeds 10k along with her daughter Katie and in the last 15 years they have raised a grand total of £36,592.88. Susan has undertaken nine of the challenges whilst under cancer treatment.

Katie says she is extremely proud of her mother and she is her inspiration.  To mark this achievement Susan and Katie have been awarded a Certificate of Recognition from Leeds Hospitals Charity.

All funds raised by Susan and Katie have been donated to Breast Cancer Research Action Group (part of Leeds Hospitals Charity) charity registration no. 1170369.
