One For Fun’s Leanne Jennings completes Race for Life

Published on: 17th May 2022

Leanne is raising much-needed funds for Cancer Research, and has thanked all those in the trade who have donated to her efforts so far.

One for Fun’s Leanne Jennings and six of her equally enthusiastic friends took part in the Muddy 5K Obstacle Run for Cancer Research this weekend at the Norfolk Showground.

Leanne said: “For those that know me well, you will know that my motto in life thus far has been ‘I only run if I am being chased, so if you see me running – be worried!’ However, when a friend asked me back in January if I wanted to get involved in it this year I didn’t hesitate to say yes.”

Leanne dedicated her race number to Steve Webb, who sadly died of cancer earlier this year.

Leanne added: “Joking aside, we all know someone who has been affected by cancer – some lucky ones and some not so lucky ones. Most recently we lost our friend and colleague Steve Webb, who I honoured on my race number.”

Steve Webb, head of Retail at Cartamundi, passed away earlier this year after a short battle with cancer. Steve spent several years at One For Fun as strategic account manager.

Leanne would like to thank everyone in the trade that sponsored her. Those that haven’t yet can donate via this link.
