Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Through my work with the Henderson Group I had the opportunity to visit the Daisy Lodge in Newcastle, Co Down. The sad reality is that every week in Northern Ireland another three children and young people aged 0-24 years old will be diagnosed with cancer.
As Northern Ireland’s leading children’s cancer charity, Cancer Fund for Children understands the devastating impact a cancer diagnosis and its treatment has on the whole family, and that beyond the essential medical care, there is a family life that needs to be rebuilt. From the point of diagnosis the team of Cancer Support Specialists is there to help, guide and support families at home, in their community, and at their therapeutic short break and residential centre in Newcastle, Co. Down.
To help raise money for this fantastic cause I am taking up two challenges.
Transatlantic Way Challenge: In June I will take on the Transatlantic Way Cycle with a good friend Paul Caldwell which will cover over 1400 miles from Dublin to Malin Head and then following the Wild Atlantic Way finishing in Kinsale, Cork in 7 days averaging 200 miles per day.
Trek Vietnam: In October myself and a team of staff from the Henderson Group will take part in a 10 trek through Vietnam.
I have a Huge Target to achieve and with the support of friends, families and colleagues I believe I can achieve this. So can I ask you to DIG DEEP to help the unfortunate youth in Northern Ireland through the difficult times that this disease brings.
