Lauren Mackenzie Yorkshire 3 Peaks
I have, fortunately, had no personal experience of losing someone close to me from Cancer. However, it does not mean that it has not, or will not, affect my life. Cancer is one of the biggest killers in our world, and if I can support this wonderful charity to help those in my local community cope with the harsh reality of life with "The Big C", then I know I have done something right. The wonderful work done by charities is only possible if we all help out in our own little way. This is my small, but necessary, contribution.Donate to this page
What I’m doing:
I have agreed to participate in the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge, which will incorporate me walking 24 miles in 12 hours. This may sound doable and easy...until you factor in the 5000ft ascent! Hopefully, being joined by a group of other keen walkers, I will be dragged through to the end successfully. All in the name of charity!!
Why I’m fundraising:
If I am honest...I don't really know why I am doing this! There are plenty of other ways to raise money for charity that would not involve me trawling up three mountains in 12 hours. However, what could be more fun than subjecting other people to my incessant moaning in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales?!
In all seriousness though, I have always loved a challenge, and if I am able to help raise even a small amount of money for charity, then it will make this particular challenge all the more memorable and worth it. We all do enough things in our lives for selfish reasons, I know I definitely do, so to be able to give something back is the least I can do.
