Last year several friends became a team and named themselves Prosecco-ows. They took part in Shine London 2017 and walked 26.2 in London in the dark to raise money for Cancer Research UK. I was both impressed and inspired by their achievement. This year the team has swelled to 13 ladies and I am lucky to be part of the 2018 team renamed Return of the Prossecco-ows. My drive behind doing this charity walk is to support Mel, who very sadly lost her husband Steve to cancer earlier this year. Cancer has also struck members of my family and several friends. Some that I have lost and some that I am incredibly grateful that have survived. I am therefore walking in memory of those that I have lost but also in gratitude for lives that have been saved. I am truly thankful and grateful for the pioneering research that is being undertaken and the commitment of NHS staff.
So, all the team has to do is walk a marathon (26.2 miles) in London in the dark and of course, raise vital money for research. Not being the athletic type and well-known for liking my sleep, this is going to be a huge personal challenge for me but I know that we will help and support each other along the way.
The money raised from this walk will be collated together with the other team members but my individual target is £260.00
