I'm walking at least 10,000 steps every day this March for Cancer Research UK.

My mum’s done so much to raise funds for Cancer Research UK over the years - knitting, walking, shaking buckets, volunteering in charity shops - but due to a recent diagnosis, she just can’t right now. So it’s my turn to step up - literally.

I’ve signed up to ‘Walk All Over Cancer’ and will walk (or dance) at least 10,000 steps every single day in March. No excuses. No carry-overs.

In the beforetimes I would have done this easily in my (exhausting) daily commute. These days ‘the office’ is just 10 steps from my bed (yes, I counted), so this will require more planning and effort. Since the pandemic started my average daily step count has been just 5,000, so this will be an actual challenge.

I’m doing this for my mum, for my beloved nannie we lost to a brain tumour in 2002, for my lovely grandad who we lost after a battle with prostate cancer in 2006 and for all the many people facing cancer.

Cancer is absolutely shit. And it’s even worse right now, as lockdowns and social distancing are a barrier to many of the coping mechanisms anyone would normally rely on just to get through it.

There is little I can do directly to help my mum. But I can get my arse off the sofa every day and out pounding the pavement. And *that* will help raise money for essential research to help treat and cure cancers. We’ve seen this past year the power that medical research has. Please help if you can.

If you have any spare pennies or pounds to donate, it will go so far to help, and it would mean so much to me and my family. Thank you.
