Get your wallets out, it's for a good cause

Every year my wife enters Race For Life, a charity event staged at numerous round Britain where woman run five kilometres [about three miles] to raise money for Cancer Research UK. In my wife's case, that means running up, around and over Arthur's Seat, a very imposing volcanic hill in the middle of Edinburgh. It's not quite the equivalent of jogging up the north face of the Eiger, but it's close. Utterly exhausting and well worth sponsoring.

So, here's where you can pitch in. If you've ever read anything that was useful, or amusing, or [grud help us] inspirational on this blog - now's your chance to pay a little something back. Go to my wife's Race For Life page and sponsor her for a few quid. Minimum donation is £2, so there's no excuse for not chipping in. Cripes, the Sunday Times cost £2 now and that's just for some inky bits of dead tree that clutter up your house.

Go on, you know you want to. £2 isn't going to break the bank, even in the current financial climate. If you're feeling generous, throw in a fiver. Or a twenty. Go mental and put some more in if you wish, but even £2 makes a difference. She's halfway to raising her target of £400 - let's get her the rest of the way. Go on, go on, go on, go on, go on. Go on! Make sure to mention Vicious Imagery in the comments section while you're there.

What I find appauling is the adverts. "All women are invited". And men aren't? It's madness! Men can't get cancer? Men aren't fit to raise money for cancer research? From the adverts, it seems not. It really does disgust me.

However, I applaud anyone who does the race and helps fight cancer. Next year, I intend to do it myself, if only to make a point that men actually are aware of cancer and may like to be invited to the race. Believe it or not, men get cancer. Cancer Research UK may not think so, but it's true!

No offence to anyone, but it gets be. Hope you raise a lot of money :)
