In Memory of Ros Condon

24/12/1948 - 24/09/2003

My Mum was the most fun, warm and kind-hearted person you could meet and I was lucky enough to have her in my life for 19 years. She was and still is very loved by us all and is so missed everyday.
I have managed to bully and guilt 20+ willing victims into taking part in a gruelling mud obstacle run with me on 16th May this year. I've set up this page to collect the sponsorship money we raise in her memory.
Thank you in advance for your donation to such a great charity.
Wish us luck.

£435.00 Alex, Olly and Toms20 May 2015 We have all rather foolhardly decided to embark upon a 10mile assault course complete with obstacles copied from programs such as Ninja warrior, Takeshi's castle and Total wipeout. We will film our adventure with a Go-pro for all of your amusement and hopefully you will have a chuckle at our trials and tribulations. Scarily it is predicted that by 2020 nearly half of the UK population will suffer some form of cancer during their lifetime. So funding to further cancer research and improve cancer care is becoming ever more important. Sadly all of us will know the devestating effects cancer can have upon our lives and we are running this challenge in memory of a friends mother who tragically passed away after her own personal battle. However we also wish to honour other friends and family who have also battled cancer and we hope all funds raised can help others in the future
£315.00 Fletch, Soph and Grazza20 May 2015 Our lovely friend Suzy has inspired us to raise money for charity in the name of her wonderful mother whom sadly we didn't have the chance to meet. I wish we did, she sounds fantastic. When she passed away the family set up a trust in her name with funds going to charities they felt made a real difference, the frontline troops as Rosaleen put it. Therefore, we are running for Breast Cancer Care which funds projects that give support to women who are just trying to live. If asked whether me, Soph and Grazza would like to go for a muddy run where we can wrestle people and pretend we're gladiators on the travelator, we would prob jump at the opportunity but that shouldn't be a reason to not sponsor us. Instead, just celebrate all that we enjoy and help us raise some money in the process. Many many thanks.
Katy and Colm23 April 2015 On 16th May we will be taking on the Rough Runner challenge as part of a team with our friend Suzy (who HATES mud) at the helm. There will be mud, obstacles, mud, more mud and more obstacles... and running - yikes! The reason we're raising money as a group for Breast Cancer Care, is that Suzy lost her lovely Mum when she was 19. But it's also something important to us, as both of our families have experienced breast cancer and its effects over the past few years. Thanks in advance for any support you're able to give - we'll keep you posted! Katy and Colm x
£752.07 Suzanne Condon23 April 2015 "Why didn't you pick something you actually want to do?" said basically everyone when I told them that I'm taking part in Rough Runner. My answer is because I want to actually earn this sponsor money. I hate mud and being cold and wet is the worst. I'm not a big fan of the outdoors or exercising generally. I'm very clumsy. This is going to be horrible. This will be a real challenge for me.
£275.00 Seren Olcan and James23 April 2015 If you know me well, you will be well aware of my aversion to physical activity! But here is my pal Suzie's story and why I am putting myself through this awful idea of running *cough* 5k through mud and obstacles... "I've organised a whole bunch of us to do this and all the money is going to Breast Cancer Care in memory of my wonderful Mum who I love and miss so very much. She died when I was 19 and had been battling cancer since before my living memory. Anything good that I am is pretty much because she was my mother. I was incredibly lucky to have her."
£232.00 Patrick Kirchner23 April 2015 I was asked by my good friend Suzy to help raise some money in memory of her mum who died from cancer. I was more than happy to help and have now got myself signed up for a 10km mud run called Rough Runner, its going to be far from fun so please sponsor me for my pain :p

£165.00 Daniel Biagioni23 April 2015 On the 16th of May this year I'll be taking part in an event in Oxfordshire called Rough Runner to raise money for Breast Cancer Care. The event has been described as "a new breed of sports event that merges distance running and obstacles that you'll have to take on along the way". The event explains that these are not just the 'regular' obstacles you'll see at every other event out there, they are "designed to give those taking part a uniquely physical challenge of skill and endurance".
£55.00 Clair Sammons23 April 2015 So, I'm fundraising again, and this time it's for Breast Cancer Care, in memory of my good friend Suzy's mum, Rosaleen Condon. Alongside lots of friends running for the same good cause, we will be taking part in this years Rough Runner. (think running, mud and obstacles) www.roughrunner.com Training has begun, but my biggest fear is how clumsy I am and my ability to normally injure myself on this type of thing. We have all agreed to take part in this event, to raise as much money as possible for Breast Cancer Care. Below is a message from Suzy, about her mum and cancer. Cancer affects everyone, so please donate and fingers crossed for no broken bones or damaged limbs! xxxxxx
£243.52 Ashley Kamoto23 April 2015 Our effervescent and whacky friend, Suzy, unfortunately lost her mother to Cancer in 2003 and has asked me to raise money for Breast Cancer Care in her memory. Among other great things Breast Cancer Care provide quality information and offer emotional and practical support to those affected by the disease. The Rough Runner (http://roughrunner.com/) is a 10K run with all sorts of obstacles such as mud, water , more mud and anything you might see on a '90s TV gameshow. We' ll be taking part on 16th May 2015.
£130.00 Vicky Towell23 April 2015 I've been invited to take part in the 'Rough Runner' obstacle mud run, to help raise money for Breast Cancer Care in memory of Rosaleen Condon, mother and best friend, to my lovely bubbly friend Suzy! The event involves getting wet, muddy, out of breath, and pretty much wrecked (not in the sense of intoxication), which I am totally NOT looking forward to....but, it's for charity right?! So I couldn't say no!! There's a whole bunch of us running for this cause, so please help us raise as much as possible for this amazing charity, who support so many incredibly brave women and their families. Thank you :-) x
£190.00 Katy Grey23 April 2015 One of my oldest and loveliest friends Suzy sadly lost her lovely, inspiring and kind hearted mum far too soon. Ros was always so welcoming to me and thoroughly enjoyed a good glass of wine and a gossip with us many an evening- she was my favouritest mum other than my own! Breast Cancer Care does an incredible job of supporting those families affected by cancer, and I'd like to support Suzy, the charity and remember and celebrate Ros's life by getting very muddy and pretty knackered as we make our way round the Rough Runner obstacle course. I would be really grateful if you can support us.
