Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit the 10 Peaks JustGiving page.

Many people have said why does the event need to be so hard, including some of the people who have already agreed to participate! Lots of people, including myself, have no idea if they will finish. Afterall, how could you know? Even those who have hiked 73km before probably didn't climb three quarters of the way up Mount Everest and back doing it! And then there's the unpredictable weather in the Lake District just to make it more interesting. ...my answer would be it is meant to be a challenge!

It's about pushing yourself, discovering the limits and then picking yourself up and pushing on - just as those fighting cancer have to do with each dose of chemo or each radiotherapy session. The 10 Peaks is for all those fighting everyday, more than for those of us who will fight for a day.

My chosen charity for the 2011 10 Peaks Challenge is Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan do a fantastic job supporting people with cancer and their families, providing practical, medical and emotional support.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
