I lost my father to cancer so I’m walking 10,000 steps this March for Cancer Research UK, please support me.

In memory of

My father, Derek John Halstead

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This March I’m walking 10,000 steps a day throughout the month to help beat cancer sooner. Help me Walk All Over Cancer and fund life-saving research by sponsoring me.

Over three years ago I lost my father to cancer and this devastated my life and it is only now that I can do something positive to help others to avoid going through what I went through. Any research that may result in stopping just one person getting cancer will stop someone going through what I did is a good thing in my books. This is why I am doing this challenge.

This is no easy challenge for me. Last year I averaged 3500-4000 steps per day despite trying to hit 6500 steps. I am overweight, have a back problem which I am getting treatment for and my knees are shot to pieces from playing football earlier in life. To do this challenge will mean a change in my lifestyle and habits but I am real fired up for this so please help me by sponsoring me and together we will, just maybe, help someone beat cancer and stop their relatives going through a similar experience to me.

What a lovely way to honor your father and help others. I hope the challenge was both inspirational and cathartic.

All the best
