I am hoping to raise over £3,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support as part of Macmillan's Peru Hiking Challenge.
I will be joining around 60 people trekking the Inca Trail between 29 May and 7 June 2009. The 10-day challenge is a demanding journey across steep and remote mountain trails to the legendary city, Machu Picchu.
I signed up to walk the Inca Trail after my aunt died of cancer last year, she spoke of the Macmillan nurses as if they were saints to her and I can’t think of a better tribute to her memory.
In the UK one in three people will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime and over a million people are currently living with cancer. Macmillan is a UK charity providing the expert care and practical and emotional support which is changing the lives of people living with cancer today.
Money raised by me will be used to help fund specialist Macmillan nurses and doctors who deliver the best in cancer care, most vitally needed cancer care centres and give financial help to those who need it most.
Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Macmillan Cancer Support gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.
