Story

In recent years, I have wanted to push myself to do a trek of some kind and Snowdon has been my recent goal. Due to having a weak leg and pin through the bone from a condition in my right tibia, which I was born with, I was never allowed to do PE at school and always knew I had to be extra careful and more cautious. This led me to not pushing myself and believing I could walk too much or too far. More recent years I have wanted to push my limits and see what I can achieve. I started to love the outdoors more and started to take myself out walking more often. I felt it was time to set this goal of Snowdon and begin pushing myself with training to make it happen, and why not raise money for some great charities whilst I'm there. 

I am trekking Snowdon on 7th June 2019 with Alzheimers Society for my Gran who suffers with Alzhiemers. Whilst doing this and raising money for Alzhiemers Society, I am also raising for Pilgrims Hospice in memory of a dear friend, Marie, who (in 2019) would have been gone 10 years. Marie was an inspiration. A friend who was always happy, despite what was thrown at her. Remembering that it will be 10 years was the final push I needed to set a date to the Snowdon. The image above is photo of Marie and I doing Race for Life in 2008. I hope to make her, and my gran, proud.
