In 2018 I will be raising money for the wonderful children and young persons cancer charity Henry Dancer Days, in memory of my amazing son Ben, lost too soon at age of 18 in 2011. 

Ben faced his diagnosis and treatment with so much courage and dignity, I want to celebrate this by getting out of my comfort zone and challenging myself and hopefully raise a good deal to support other young people facing this life changing diagnosis and going through the truly awful treatments.

Event details


So I will be tackling the following

6 half marathons
6 Mountains climbed 
6 cycle rides of over 50 miles

Update! I have now completed 10 of my challenges , with huge suppprt from family, friends old and new and even complete strangers! 

Thank you to everyone! 

And please keep keep helping me !!
