I am Taking It On this November

Hey everyone,

It is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and we are Taking It On.

Tragically we lost our beloved, beautiful and amazing friend Laura this May. She was such a strong and courageous women who fought this horrific disease for more than 18 months, undergoing various treatments and always wearing a smile. We understand that this won’t bring her back but by pulling together and raising money and awareness, we hope that one day soon a cure will be found. 

Laura’s Lunatics love her very much and hope by spreading this message we will do her proud. 

By uniting together we can transform the future for all those affected by pancreatic cancer.

1 in 4 people won’t survive a month. 3 in 4 won’t survive for a year. This is an emergency. We need change, fast. It’s time to Take It On.

With your help we can ensure we fund research that will lead to earlier diagnosis and faster treatment, saving more lives.

As a group we have combined different ways to take this challenge on....

Trina and Blondie have challenged themselves to walk 24 miles in 24 days as well as giving up alcohol for the duration of the challenge. 

Riley and Euan are swimming 24 miles 

Kirsty and Hayley are walking 24 miles and running 24 miles 

Kim is cycling 24 miles and walking 24 miles

Finlay and jack are cycling 24 miles 

Barry is going to walk 48 miles

Julian is going to run 24 miles 

Michael and Graham are running 24 miles and cycling 24 miles 

Poppy, Evie and Molly are walking 24 miles 

Conor, Chris and Lola are walking 24miles and cycling 24 miles. 
  
Katherine, Bethan, Damien, Millie and Amy are walking 24 miles, cycling 24 miles and running 24 miles . 

On the days that we struggle with this challenge we must remind ourselves of Laura’s gentle words of encouragement: 

“Man up”, 
“Get a grip” and “it is what it is” 
On top of the individual pledges we are aiming at completing a final walk in celebration of Laura‘s life on the 24th November. We aim to walk 24km around Llangynidr. 

Please donate to this amazing cause that has affected so many people and continues to do so.
