A pair of sisters whose father has cancer are to take part in a nightly charity walk.

Amy Goble and Clare Cade will join hundreds of other walkers to light up Brighton and Hove at Cancer Research UK’s Shine Night Walk event on Friday 19 August.

Amy from Worthing and her sister Clare from Stevenage will take on the 10K challenge inspired by their father Dave Bryant who is currently being treated for colon cancer.

Amy, who runs bespoke wedding invitation business The Amyverse, said: “He’s someone we really, really love and care about and we felt helpless.

“We can’t take the cancer away, but when we found out about Shine, we felt like we could take back a little control by doing something proactive that helps other people, supports research, and helps people, through Cancer Research.” to come UK.

“Clare and I aren’t athletic, so running wasn’t an option at all. But a nocturnal stroll around Brighton that we can do at our own pace while soaking up the atmosphere seemed pretty good.”

Participants in the Shine Night Walk are encouraged to wear strings of lights, glow sticks, and glowing clothing or face paint during the event as a symbol of bringing light to Cancer’s dark days.

To help them prepare, Amy, 30, and Clare, 28, enlisted their four-legged friends for extra-long walks. Amy was accompanied by her cockapoo Deefa and Clare with her terriers Freddie and Riley.

Dave, 61, had radiation therapy and chemotherapy last year. By Christmas things were looking positive and Dave switched to three month reviews. But at the first check he was told the cancer would come back.

“They found cancer in his liver, so he had to start more intensive chemotherapy immediately,” Amy said.

He had to stay in the hospital for five weeks and then got a blood infection that kept him there even longer.

Doctors have had to temporarily stop cancer treatment while he takes antibiotics for the infection.

Clare said attending the event was “my way of giving back and showing my dad how much I love him.”

“We’re grateful to have more quality time with Dad, so we want to do everything we can to develop better treatments.”

“We hope that sharing our family history will help inspire people to sign up for Shine. There really is no better motivation than knowing that you are helping to save lives. Everyone can take part at their own pace, whether it’s a leisurely walk, a brisk pace or an exuberant power walk. The important thing is to raise money.”

Amy and Clare have raised £1,400 so far.

Entry to the event is still open, with Brighton becoming the first of 19 venues across the UK to host a Shine Night Walk in 2022.

Until August 17 at midnight, participants with the code SNWBRI30 will receive a 30 percent discount on the entry fee.

The Shine Night Walk begins and ends at Hove Lawns, with participants setting off in waves from 7:45pm.
