Story

Our mums, daughters, Sisters, Wives & Partners are the most important people in our lives. We would give our last breath to help protect the women in our lives. They are what make us 'Us' and are the backbone of all our families. I am raising funds to support Breast Cancer for the Pink Ribbon Foundation. Breast Cancer is the 2nd biggest cause of death in women. My partner was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer. When this happens, their world suddenly changes and they can feel very alone with the world falling apart around them. Like many other illnesses or diseases it is something that with the help of fundraising is helping to save lives and extend lives. This is why I am choosing what will be one of my biggest challenges yet. An epic challenge to try and cross Iceland from the North Coast to the South Coast, solo & unsupported. There are no shops or civilisation and no one to help when things go wrong. I will truly be on my own. Which is why every step taken to raise funds brings you closer to that feeling of truly being alone with no help. This is how our women feel every day that suffer from breast cancer. An eery silence and darkness inside their heads. Please support me and all the women in our lives in any way you can. Whether you can afford £5.00 or £50.00, every penny is crucial to the continuous work being done in the background to help stop our women feeling alone and helpless. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

About the charity

The Pink Ribbon Foundation is a grant making trust, its mission is to fund projects and provide impartial financial support to breast cancer charities. We have very little infrastructure in order to ensure that all of the charities that benefit from the work of the Foundation receive maximum gain.
