My Story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This March I’m walking 10,000 steps a day throughout the month to help beat cancer sooner. My motivation for doing this is quite selfish and in no way related to cancer. I have been suffering with agoraphobia for a number of years and decided in the new year to really try to overcome it. I have subsequently managed to get out alone for walks on a few days but quickly find myself making excuses to stay home. If I find a reason to stay home one day, it makes it so much harder to go outside again the next day, and on it goes. I realised that what I was doing was just for myself and that if I made a commitment to someone else, I would be more likely to follow through. In signing up to do this challenge, I hope to raise money for cancer research while helping myself to overcome my agoraphobia. Now that I have made this commitment, there is no going back. No making excuses not to go outside. To be honest, I'm terrified at the thought of doing this challenge, but at the same time I promise to give 100%. After all, I stand to benefit more than cancer research do.
