This March I will be turning my daily walks into something meaningful. I have set myself the challenge to walk 10’000 steps every single day in March to raise money for Cancer Research UK. That is 310’000 steps over the full month!
You can donate to my fundraising page by clicking the ‘My Giving Page’ down below. On this page you can track my progress and follow this journey along with me. You can also follow me on my Instagram or my Facebook Fundraising Page to keep a check on how i’m doing!
To Donate: My Giving Page
I have a great deal of reasons why I want to raise money for Cancer Research. And I imagine you all do too. I could turn this into a sob story about loss and struggle but I think we have all had enough of that in the last year. So instead I want to talk about a positive future. A one where the statistics are kinder, the number of deaths is lower and the recovery stories outweigh the stories of battles lost.
That is a future we all want and it is possible with research. If you are so able to donate then I would be incredibly grateful. Whether it is £50 or 50p, with this, every penny counts!
If you want to get involved yourself check out the Cancer Research Walk All Over Cancer Page or if you want to see all the good that donations over the years has done, have a look at the Cancer Research Achievements Timeline.
Week 1 Update:
It is now Sunday 7th and we are one week through this challenge. So far, the fundraiser is at £137 which is incredible! I set the target at £150 but I think I might have to raise it if it is met this coming week. This week has been a bit of an eyeopener. I didn’t think when I set out to do this that making sure I hit at least 10k steps everyday would make much of a difference. However, that has not been the case at all! I am definately sleeping a lot better because I am exhausted. My lower back and calves are KILLING ME! But overall I feel so much fitter and the walking in general is getting easier. On Saturday I clocked 20k steps for the whole day, double what I needed. Yet this morning when I woke up I didnt feel any pain or anything. I just feel so much healthier, and I am being a little more productive in other aspects of my life too! I can’t wait to see how I feel next week!
Thank you all so much for reading!
Stay Safe, Happy Adventuring!
