Kent mother to take on 10km obstacle course to raise funds in memory of friend
A mother from Kent is to take on one of the UK’s muddiest obstacle course races to raise vital funds for Breast Cancer Now in memory of her friend. Kerry Rubins, from Deal, will be taking on the 10km Royal British Legion Major Series in Eridge Park on the 9th April as part of a series of ten events to mark ten years since she started raising money for the charity, following her friend Julie’s diagnosis in 2006.
- After seeing an article in a magazine about Breast Cancer Now in 2006, Kerry started fundraising for the charity
- However, it was in 2010 after Julie passed away from secondary Breast Cancer that Kerry really ramped up her fundraising, raising over £48,000 for Breast Cancer Now by the end of 2011
- Five years later, Kerry has decided to take on the Royal British Legion Major Series, which will see her battling muddy bogs, cargo nets and barbed wire crawls, in order to mark ten years of her fundraising in Julie’s legacy

Kerry, 42, commented:
It has been ten years since I started fundraising for Breast Cancer Now, so it felt only fitting that I do something to mark the occasion. Taking on ten events in a year is a challenge, but I’m looking forward to getting very muddy at my second challenge at the Royal British Legion Major Series, and raising vital funds in memory of my beautiful friend Julie.
Losing Julie was such a sad time for all of us, but it is our hope that by raising these funds for Breast Cancer Now we will go some way in helping beat this disease and honouring her memory.
