I relay because...
My younger sister Paula sadly lost her battle against breast cancer on the 9th May 2022.
She had planned to fundraise for a UK cancer charity (Macmillans) by doing a 40km walk from Coast to Coast called The Mighty Hike.
I have decided to walk in her honour and commit to also walk 40km while raising funds here in Darwin as part of the SonD team (in honour of a friend and her family) and in the UK for Paula's chosen charity as she had planned.
Beating cancer, finding new treatments and early detection is important to us all, so the more we can raise the better outcomes we will see in the future across the globe.
Please dig deep and share my fundraising page - I will record my progress throughout the Relay for Life event which also aligns with the Mighty Hike in the UK taking place on the same weekend.
Thank you for supporting me and a cause that is so close to my heart. XXX
So far this year I've helped provide:
As easy as riding a bike.After a short and relaxing stint on my bike yesterday I thought I’d cover my daily distance on a bike ride today. It’s been many, many years since I rode my bike for any lengthy duration so my legs and bottom are in a state of shock right now 🤣
Less than a week to go!I’ve been walking a fair bit lately and covered 12.5km this morning to focus on increasing my daily distance during this week rather than speed. I backed it up tonight with a bike ride along the Foreshore to work a different muscle group (& give my knees a rest) while we had some family time.
My 40km commitment.My younger sister Paula decided to walk 40km during the Mighty Hike Coast to Coast (UK) to raise money for the McMillan cancer charity in honour of our Mum who lost her battle with breast cancer at only 51 years old. (1992)
