Please note that I am not actively taking part in the following charity event…but I do think it is a very worthy charity and what these guys are doing off their own backs is fantastic.

On 14th June, a growing band of reprobates will tackle the unforgiving terrain of the West Pennine Moors. It will truly be a Monumental Mountainous Marathon!
- MONUMENTAL! A gargantuan hike, taking in Rivington Pike, Darwen’s Jubilee Tower and finishing at Peel Tower in Bury.
- MOUNTAINOUS!! A total climb of 3,000 feet. Like climbing a proper mountain, but during a marathon! Eat that Mo Farah!
- MARATHON!!! A mammoth marathon distance of 26.2miles up hill and down dale.
Why? Because we want to inspire YOU to help these 2 excellent charities, just as Emily, Luca, Robyn and others inspire us. See www.facebook.com/FacesofWard84 for more details.
Children with Cancer UK fund life-saving research into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancer.
Projects being worked on NOW include leukaemia, neuroblastoma, brain tumours and bone and soft tissue sarcomas. Over 1,500 children are diagnosed with cancer every year. Let’s give them the cash they need to do the science to beat it!
Macmillan nurses are absolutely invaluable. Our MacMillan nurse has been a wonderful support during the toughest time of our lives. Let’s give Macmillan the cash to help support other children and families!
Finding out that your child has cancer is utterly horrifying. Your whole world is rocked, your child is severly ill, and then has endure endless rounds chemotherapy and all the side effects.
Childhood cancer doesn’t just affect the child and parents – grandparents, aunts and uncles, friends and even neighbours are devastated. We have lived it first-hand.
So, if childhood cancer has barged uninvited into your life, why not sponsor us? And up you up for a challenge, you could even join us (find us on Facebook)
This event is not just about making money for 2 amazing charities, it’s about doing something positive to strike back. Please, please consider sponsoring us whatever amount you like.
A few quid will do a lot of good, and your messages of support will keep us going during the walk and over the coming months.
Thank you for your support
