I'm taking on Round Britain Your Way

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. Since my Desmoid Tumour diagnosis in 2013, the Trust have been central to raising my spirits and showing me that you set your own limits. I took part in 2 legs of Round Britain 2017, including the last leg bringing the challenge to it’s end in Largs. 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. The Trust have challenged me to look beyond my limits, and therefore I am challenging myself to walk 100 miles this September to help make sure the Trust is still there for other young people who need them.

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

Getting active!

Thursday 17th Sep
So on Monday I went to Leeds and Tuesday I went into school and taught so I did a lot of miles at the beginning of this week! So I’m determined to stay active on my days off too. Especially on a nice sunny day! Thanks again to all my supporters.

First Fitbit use

Monday 7th Sep
So I bought a Fitbit with hope of tracking my workouts better. I wore it just for counting my steps and distance today not for purposefully doing my walking - and this is how much I have walked anyway! Definitely easier to keep track of my goal now.

First walk!

Friday 4th Sep
As well as adding up all of my regular activity since the beginning of September, I did my first treadmill walk today. Since my diagnosis in 2013, my fitness has greatly slipped and so this is an achievement for me to start to put more time into my fitness again!
