Paulina's Race For Life Challenge

Paulina from Heart Breakfast is running 5 Race for Life events across Bristol, Bath and Somerset.

Following her terrifying horse riding accident last year, Paulina has set herself the challenge to run five Race For Life 5k's across the West Country. Her challenge will see her walk, jog or run 25k (or over 15miles) with thousands of ladies coming together to fight cancer.

Paulina was flung off her horse in 2011 and an Air Ambulance took her to Hospital where she battled with her injuries. Now, Paulina wants to celebrate her health by taking on this challenge, meeting the ladies of the West Country to hear their stories whilst raising as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK.

Losing her first husband and best friend to Cancer, this is a cause close to Paulina's heart and it means a lot to her to be able to put on her trainers and dedicate her runs to them. Make sure you look out for Paulina at a Race for Life event near you and give her a cheer.
