In September I will be hiking 80km across The Great Wall of China to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Over 11 days I will be hiking for up to 7 hours a day and sleeping in a tent. No mean feat, that’s for sure but Macmillan is such a worthy cause so all of the pain (and the lack of toilets and showers – where will I wee?? Eeek!) will be so worth it.
I started this year wanting to do something to help others and make a difference. Tragically I lost my Grandad and an Aunt to cancer and I have also witnessed one of my close friends be attacked by the evil disease but thankfully beat it.
Macmillan do an incredible job of offering help and support to everyone affected by cancer, so doing something to raise money for them seemed the obvious choice.
|The Great Wall of China - WOW!|
Hiking across The Great Wall of China clearly wasn’t the obvious choice (and I’ve been told by numerous people I’m crazy for signing up) but it’s a million miles away from how I normally spend my days so I honestly can’t wait.
See you later heels, make-up, parties, champagne and celebrities. Hello hiking boots, waterproofs, the au natural look, greasy hair (mmm, sexy) and 40 new (equally mad) friends.
I’ve never even owned a pair of hiking boots for goodness sake, but I seriously can’t wait to get involved, finish that 80km and hand Macmillan a big fat cheque.
Booze is pretty much dead to me and I’m working out with a trainer at my David Lloyd gym to strengthen my screwed foot. There is no way I’m getting ANOTHER fracture on that mofo. Me and that ‘boot of doom’ are over. 4eva.
I need to raise a minimum of £3,500 to keep my place. I’ve never raised that much money for charity before, so it’s going to be a challenge.
I’m already planning a big Pamper Party and various cake sales… but people can also donate by logging on here…
Every little helps!
