2014 APPLEBY BERMUDA HALF MARATHON DERBY
My name is Victoria Eldridge and I am a second-year university student currently studying abroad in Argentina. This year in February, I decided to shave my head not only in recognition of those fighting cancer, but also as a reminder to girls that true beauty is not skin-deep. Every girl has talents and skills that go beyond their appearances that they can offer to the world.
Even though I have never run a marathon, I have chosen to run May 24th for all the women fighting the good fight. Cancer has affected many of my family members, including my grandmother and great-grandmother, who have passed, my grandmother here in Bermuda, as well as my Mom, all of whom have battled with breast cancer. My goal of $3,000 will go towards early cancer detection and education.
Please support me as I try to spread awareness, especially to young girls, that they may be able to protect themselves against breast cancer.
Please check out my video where I shave my head:

Running for a cause!
I'm so grateful for my health and so aware that it can all change so quickly.
I want to support this very worthy charity in all it does to assist those in need.
My son did St Baldrick's, I donated my hair for cancer children's wigs and now I'm going to try and run the half marathon.
Sponsor me please to keep running, and in turn keep the help going!
Thank you x
My 6 year old son Jaaziah Van-Lowe will be running the last relay leg in the 2014 24th of May Marathon Event. For the past 6 years he has been growing his hair for cancer. A month after he was born his Great-Great Aunt Isabelle Simons was diagnosed with cancer and today she is Cancer free. I decided to grow his hair for cancer upon her diagnoses. His hair ranges between 10 and 12 inches long. Like Sampson in the bible he believes his hair is his strength and it takes a strong person to beat cancer. This is his last year growing his hair and has decided to run in the marathon to represent his Aunts strength. We target to raise $600 for Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre as my aunt battle is now over.
