Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
So, the big day has nearly arrived... I'm just finalising everything ready for tomorrow and my slightly-less-nightmarish 6am start. A huge thank you to everyone who's sponsored me and big love to my support crew who will be helping me along the way.
During my training, I have walked for 37 hours, 33 minutes and 39 seconds and covered a distance of 141.1 miles (227 km). I have burned 10794 calories and averaged 3.7 mph. I think I'm ready...
Just over a year ago, my surrogate-dad Alan (he's not genetically responsible but has plenty to answer for :o) ) was diagnosed with advanced, inoperable prostate cancer. To illustrate the uphill struggle this has become (and because I'd walk there if he needed me), I am going to walk from my home in Worcester to Alan (& my Mum - she's awesome too) on the top of 'their' hill, 25.73 miles away. Alan thinks I should start there and just get further away... :o)
The date for this lunacy is Saturday 26th May 2012 - my plan is to leave home at around 5am and crawl (probably vomiting by then) across the finish line sometime late in the afternoon. This challenge is way beyond what's reasonable - my bottom is huge and I'll be dragging it up SO many hills.
I want to raise as much money as possible and raise awareness so others can avoid the kind of year we've all just had, and the nightmare which is waiting. Guys - if you're over 50, demand a PSA test! Ladies, make your man get tested - this is not an old man's disease.
Thank you so much.
