Thank you for visiting my JustGiving page.
Those of you who know me well will be fully aware that exercise is not one of my favourite past times – I work hard in my career and the most walking I tend to do is generally in the office! This year, my employers, JCT600, have decided to challenge this balance so on the 12th of May over a hundred of my colleagues and I are taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks – all of them! The walk is 24.5 miles long and takes in over 5,000 feet of climbing over a variety of terrains, with certain sections being very boggy and energy sapping. Luckily for me, my close friend of over 20 years, Claire, loves exercise and the outdoors and has agreed to train with me, keeping my motivation up along the way!
When we were teenagers, Claire’s father was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour and sadly passed away within weeks of his diagnosis leaving his loving wife Denise, his daughter Claire and his son Phil. They had little time to prepare themselves for this great loss.
As this is essentially a team building exercise, each of us are able to raise money for our own chosen charity should we wish. So, to say thank you to Claire for dedicating her time to train with me, I have chosen to raise money for Brain Tumour Research and Support across Yorkshire. I’m dedicating one peak to Claire, her Mum and her brother to help boost my motivation on the day!
About Brain Tumour Research and Support across Yorkshire: Their vision is clear and simple – they want to find a cure for a devastating disease that affects so many people. Nationally, less than 1% of all the funds raised for research into cancer is devoted to brain tumour research, yet brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of our children and more people under the age of 40 die from brain tumours than from any other cancer. Around 5,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with a primary brain tumour each year and around 700 of them are from Yorkshire and receive treatment through the Leeds Teaching Hospitals. Within that number, around 25 are children – brain tumours kill more of our children than any other cancer.

Wow - what can I say?! Perfect weather conditions but still a tough day. 12 very long hours and big thanks to Claire for coming to meet us on the last leg to give us that final push! It's been emotional - but I'm proud to say I did it!! Thank you for supporting me and BTRSaY. C x
Less than a week to go until the big event and the training has gone great! Got absolutely drenched last weekend but the weather held out for us on Saturday so keep your fingers crossed for us that it's the same next weekend! Thanks so much to everyone who has donated so far! :)
