************************************************************************

Thank you for visitng my page.

I am taking on the Yorkshire 3 Peak Challenge to raise money for Diabetes UK on 18th June 2011.

The event has been organised by my boyfriend's (Ash Plant) best friend Joshua Miller (aka Miller). Miller has arranged this event to raise money for Diabetes UK for his Dad, who suffered with diabetes and sadly passed away when Miller was only a few years old.

Knowing his Dad had diabetes has influenced him to choose this charity and organise the event.

Our team includes Miller, Ash, Hannah (Miller's girlfriend), and myself and my dog, Guinness & Hannah's dog Ella.

Although this charity is not personal to myself it is very special to me that I've been asked to help Miller raise money for a charity that is so close to him for such a tragic reason.

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks will be very challenging but I feel able to complete it and the time it should take adequate walkers is 12 hours. However we're just aimed to complete it, not break any records. Miller and Hannah have not walked very much and do not walk often so it will be extremely challenging for them.

 I hope Miller's story will give you enough reason to donate and help me to support a friend with this event.

Thank you sincereley
