At the midnight hour on the 23rd June myself, my son and my partner Dom will be climbing Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Britain with the aim of getting to the summit before sunrise Sunday morning. None of us have ever done anything like this before. We've grabbed the bull by the horns & said "we can do this!" 💪
This is as much of a personal challenge for all of us, (as well as raising money for the Doncaster Cancer Detection Trust), particularly for me as I have crappy lungs & struggle with anything that has a high / intense activity. It is a 7 mile climb so I am worried I may have bitten off more than I can chew.
I have lost loved ones to the hands of cancer, I am sure many of us have... We all know how common & awful this disease is & the effects it has not just on the one who is ill but on close friends & family too.
The charity supports cancer sufferers and their families in the Doncaster area by giving funds for equipment that helps to detect and treat cancer as early as possible. Dcd trust formed in 1972 with successfully raising money for a scanning machine, after this they decided to set up the charity and keep it going... and since 1972 it has raised in excess of £4m to build and equip the St John's Hospice and over £1.1m for equipment for the local NHS trusts.
This is a fundraiser we've personally set out to do & is nothing to do with the event / organisation or company we have chosen to climb with. We thought with our hearts that it would be great to do something worth while whilst achieving this goal. So I / we do hope you can also think with your hearts & make a donation to sponsor us 😊... No matter how small, every little bit counts & we thank you from the bottom of our hearts too 💖🙏
Much love Tracey, Dom and Jacob 💖💖💖💖
