As some of you may be aware my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer in November of last year. She went through all of the Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy you can shake a stick at and thankfully she came through it all. Obviously this was an extremely turbulent time for both mum and everyone around the family, however, my Mum would not have got through this without the continuing help and support that goes into breast cancer research every year. It is for this reason that a group of school friends and I are taking on the 3 peaks challenge on the 7th/8th of September to raise money for Cancer Research UK to support the fight against Breast Cancer.
For those who are not aware, the aim of the challenge is to walk up and down the tallest mountains in Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scaffel Pike) and Wales (Snowdon) all in just 24 hours! Considering that for most of us exercise is limited to gentle strolls to the pub and the occasional half hearted jog to chase down a bus, this is going to be a rather large challenge.
Breast Cancer is the most common form of cancer in the UK which has impacted the lives of millions of people, therefore any support, big or small, is really appreciated. Cancer Research UK is a fantastic organisation and the single largest funder of research into breast cancer in the UK. If you could please donate using the below link it would be greatly appreciated.
I appreciate that you receive a number of requests like this, however I doubt there are many of you who do not know of someone who has been affected by breast cancer and therefore ask that you please give generously.
Again, a big thanks for your support!
