In 2015, I undertook a trek through Patagonia for Velindre. It was beautiful and extraordinary; but the highlight though came on the last night, as we sat together and heard that we had raised over £530,000 - it blew us away - so I couldn't wait to do another. In 2017, I, along with 42 other fund raisers, made it to Machu Picchu, another hugely successful trek led by Rhod Gilbert which raised over £420,000.

Being a busy Mum and a Managing Director of growing business, it is all too easy to get bogged down in the day to day, so the treks and challenges that I have undertaken have helped me to step outside my busy world to challenge myself whilst helping others - the sense of satisfaction and happiness as well as friendships that it has brought me are immeasurable.

This one is my biggest yet, so please give all you can to encourage me to train and achieve the challenge!

Event details


The challenge is an unsupported attempt to cover 100km across the Arctic Circle in 4 days. Along the way we'll cross frozen lakes, skirt ancient glaciers, pass through the villages of the indigenous Sami people, witness some of the most stunning scenery on the planet, and get a glimpse of the Northern Lights whilst raising much needed funds for Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff.
