Sally Penni Runs Marathon for Prevent Breast Cancer

Kenworthy's Chambers | April 27, 2023
Kenworthy’s Chambers’ Criminal Barrister Sally Penni raised £3.5k for Prevent Breast Cancer Charity running the Manchester marathon.

Kenworthy’s Chambers’ Criminal Barrister Sally Penni has just raised an amazing £3,445 for the UK charity Prevent Breast Cancer.

The eminent Barrister swapped the criminal courts and employment tribunals for the roads of Manchester on the 16th of April to run the 2023 Manchester Marathon.

The Manchester Marathon is known for its famous flat route which takes in the streets of Altrincham, Old Trafford, and the city centre over the length of its 26.2-mile-long course.

Sally Penni was more than motivated in taking on her marathon challenge because of the charity she was fundraising for; Prevent Breast Cancer.

When asked why she chose this charity, she explained, “Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. It affects about one in seven women according to the NHS, so too many women are getting breast cancer, and when it comes to breast cancer, prevention is better than cure.

“Prevent Breast Cancer funds ground-breaking research solely aimed at the prediction and prevention of breast cancer. By focusing their efforts on preventing rather than curing, Prevent Breast Cancer can promote early diagnosis, screening, and lifestyle changes that could stop the problem before it even starts.”

The Nightingale Centre in Manchester is the only breast cancer prevention centre in the UK. It is also the site where Prevent Breast Cancer is based, situating them on the front line in the fight against the disease.

Even though she has already smashed her £3k fundraising target Sally Penni isn’t planning on slowing down or stopping! She is undertaking a different challenge each month in 2023, has already registered for the Great Manchester Run in May, and will be completing a half-marathon in October.

Besides her work in Employment Law and as a Criminal Barrister, Sally Penni is the founder of Women in the Law UK and host of the Talking Law Podcast in which she uses her Barrister advocacy skills to interview leading female figures in law.
