I'm taking on Round Britain Your Way

In 2017 I took part in the cowes to Dartmouth leg of the EMCT round Britain trip to help raise awareness for such an amazing charity which helped me after my cancer treatment. This year I'm taking on Round Britain Your Way to raise vital funds so young people can still get the support they need to rebuild their lives after cancer. Young people in recovery are going to need the Trust more than ever in the aftermath of COVID-19. Isolation, loneliness, anxiety, anger and fear are all challenges young people and their families experience during and after cancer treatment. COVID-19 is intensifying every one of these to unimaginable levels. And charities are struggling more than ever as they're unable to host events in real life. I’m challenging myself to tot up miles in as many different ways as possible to help make sure the Trust is still there for those who need it in the same way I did.

Please support me on my challenge and make a donation. Whatever you can donate, any amount will help young people start to reimagine a future they might never have thought was possible.

My Updates

Second Activity - Trike Ride

Friday 25th Sep
Throwback to my lovely 17 mile trike ride round the new forest on the 7th September. Lots of lovely wildlife including: deer, cows, ponies, donkeys (and dinkies), pigs, chickens and more. Big thank you to all those who have donated already!

First Activity - Walking

Tuesday 22nd Sep
Throwback to my sunny 7.8 mile coastal walk from Fowey to Polkerris and back again with some amazing friends on 1st September.

Eighth Activity - Archery

Monday 21st Sep
Today I spent the sunny morning shooting 3D targets around Bushy Woods with the South Wilts Archery Club. They've been amazingly welcoming and helped me find a love for archery even with my severe visual impairment. Please support the EMCT by sharing and donating.

Seventh Activity - Backpacking

Sunday 20th Sep
After staying at Biblins campsite before and after my day of kayaking yesterday, today I backpacked 4.2 miles along the dismantled railway from Symonds Yat to Monmouth.

Sixth Activity - Kayaking

Sunday 20th Sep
Yesterday, I was kayaking at Symonds Yat on the Wye. It was beautifully sunny and I managed to put skills I have learnt being a Sea Scout Explorer to the test. I had great fun playing in standing waves and eddies, practicing turns, ferry gliding, skulling, draw strokes and more.

Fifth Activity - Wild Swimming

Thursday 17th Sep
Today, mum and I went wild swimming in New Forest Water Park lake in the lovely evening sun. We've enjoyed going here for our swims all summer. I did 5 laps which totals to 1.75km!

Fourth Activity - Mono Waterskiing

Tuesday 15th Sep
Yesterday, I was mono-skiing at Ellingham lake in the beautiful sunshine and amazingly flat water. I got a new pb for the half slalom course and a few weeks ago I won first place in the national disabled slalom race! Please donate to my Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust Round Britain Your Way Challenge to raise money for this amazing cause which supported me in my recovery.

Third Activity - Climbing

Friday 11th Sep
My name is Emily Wright, I'm registered blind and my challenge is to do as many different types of activity as possible in September to raise money for the EMCT. Today I went bouldering - this is me on the overhang. The EMCT helped me so much after treatment and I hope to raise money and awareness for them in this difficult time.
