Raising money for: Tenovus

Rhi Skilton

The Challenge

An 11 day trip around the Annapurna region of the Himalayas of Nepal – home to some of the highest mountains in the world – it’s pure Himalayan magic, climbing to approximately 3200m

The Charity

I am the Cancer Support Services Manager for the Charity but three weeks after my appointment to the post, my husband was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The diagnosis has changed our lives, and that of our two boys forever and we wouldn't have got through it all without the support of the charity, so it is time to give something back!

The Training

Living in the beautiful country of Wales has many advantages, not least of all the fantastic mountains. I make it a priority to walk at least 20 miles a week up in the hills and mountains with the dog for company! I have also employed a personal trainer who is pushing me to increase my fitness levels through two gruelling sessions each week, and I'm really heading towards my September goal at a breakneck speed!
