Raising money for: Weldmar Hospice Care Trust

The Challenge

I am trekking in the Sahara Desert. I will be walking up to 20 miles a day in up to 40 degree heat!

The Charity

It is a fantastic local charity that does a lot to help people in my county. It not only provides palliative care but also family support which is so important to anyone going through the difficulties of terminal illness.

The Training

I am (trying!) to do training walks and gradually increase my fitness. My dog comes on all the walks with me and he is struggling as much as I am. I wouldn't be able to do it without him. My training is not being helped by the fact that I broke my ankle some years ago and have arthritis in it. I am attending physiotherapy to try and overcome the problems with joint movement and pain that I have but I am sure it will all be worth it in the end!
