BBC Sport - Get Inspired: Running together to fight cancer
Running together to fight cancer
- From the section Get Inspired
Rebecca Griffiths has bowel and liver cancer.
The mother of two small boys was shattered to hear the news, but refused to let it get the better of her.
Determined to spread the message that fitness can help recovery, Rebecca started her own running club to encourage her community to get active. Team Bex was born, and the club now has 350 members and over 40 of them are juniors.
"No matter how much money is raised to fight cancer, people are still getting it" says Rebecca, "if you can get people fit going into the treatment they've got a better chance of fighting it."
Rebecca has literally got her community up and running.
