Cancer and more particularly Brain Cancer is something you can’t go through life without at least some awareness of, but for a few people it becomes very up close and personal. MEGA UK are again remembering a true friend and colleague – Taylor Emery. Taylor was taken from us, despite putting up his own determined fight with Brain Cancer. Three summers ago we did this with the Three Peaks Challenge and raised enough money to do SOMETHING about this horrible disease.
We chose the Three Peaks as it was the sort of ballsy and demanding challenge that Taylor would have been front and centre part of. The following year we pushed hard again and walked a significant chunk of the Jurassic Coast. Last year we walked half of the West Highland Way in Scotland– again raising money and doing SOMETHING more in Taylors name.
This year we’re going to focus on the third part of the West Highland Way - another challenge that Taylor would want to be part of. The walk will be covering the most arduous section of this classic mountain challenge and will see a few of the old faces from our team, but a few new ones too.
MEGA UK is a small tightly knit team and losing Taylor effected each of us deeply. This year we will have a couple in the team that sadly didn’t have the privilege to know Taylor, but his reputation and imprint on our team is enough to make them sign up.
Please help us do SOMETHING more this year and honour Taylor’s memory further.
