Following a gruelling year of breast cancer treatment in 2020 my goal for 2022 is to try and regain my pre-cancer fitness level. I have always enjoyed walking so a friend and I decided that it would be good to challenge ourselves to complete a long distance walk in June. Having grown up on the east coast a walk from Redcar to Filey seemed appropriate and offered a challenge, 60 miles – in 6 days, with plenty of sea air and seascapes -. Although I regularly walk, walking an average of 10 miles a day for 6 consecutive days will challenge my fitness and stamina. I will invite family and friends who supported me through my treatment to join me for all or part of the walk. Participants will benefit from undertaking the walk and I aim to raise money through sponsorship for the Sir Robert Ogden Centre which provided treatment and care for me despite the difficult conditions caused by lockdown. All the money raised will go to the Centre to enhance the treatment and facilities for patients and their families. I will keep participants and followers up to date with preparation for and progress during the walk through a blog.
