Weʼre raising £1,200 to support selfharmUK and Force Cancer Charity. I will donate £1 to each charity for every mile I walk so please support me in this challenge.
- Social welfare
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I've had to reset this just giving page as it only lasts for 4 months. With the previous page and other fundraising streams I have raised over £1000, so I'm not far off of the total! Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far, let's keep that total rising and see if we can totally smash it. :-)
I am planning to take on the South West coast path this year. It is 630 miles long!
Since my life changing osseointegration surgery in 2015 I have been gradually increasing the distance I can walk and after achieving my 10k goal in May last year I felt I should set myself a greater challenge, quite a difference in distance!
I am going to spread the walk over the year into sensible do-able chunks and David Salter has very kindly volunteered to be my walking partner throughout, friends and family are also going to join in through the various stages.
I self-harmed for a while when I was younger and never understood why. SelfharmUK has some amazing resources and I wish that they had been so easily available to me. Now a member of my family has recently self harmed and has asked me to include this charity.
A few past members of my family have suffered with various forms of cancer and most recently my daughter was cleared of cancer, what a relief. Currently my Dad is under treatment and if it wasn't for the amazing research work both my daughter and Dad may not be in my life today.
Everyone of us knows someone who has had, is ungoing treatment for or has lost their life to cancer so Force Cancer Charity is a charity that can help us all. www.forcecancercharity.co.uk
