I'm Taking it On for Pancreatic Cancer UK and my Step-Mum

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and I am Taking It On.

Pancreatic cancer is hard for doctors to spot and there is no simple diagnostic test. More than half of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer die within 3 months.

Please support me and my fundraising. Together we can help fund vital research to help get closer to a breakthrough in early diagnosis.

Pancreatic cancer is tough but together, we’ll Take It On.

My donations have funded...

168 hours with a nurse on our Support Line

or

150 hours of early diagnosis research

The Challenge is on!

Why Challenge 24? 

24 people a day loose their life to pancreatic cancer, as we all know fund raising is how vital research and support can continue.

Pancreatic Cancer UK have therefore set up Challenge 24 it's up to each fund raiser to decide what to do! 

Challenge 24 in 8 means I will walk 8 miles, cycle 8 miles, and kayak 8 miles totalling 24 miles within 8 hours! 

 The day will begin at 8am with the walk. I will start and finish at The Oak Church Eaton. I will then cycle to the Boat pub in Brewood. The final leg is the 8 mile kayak along the canal to The Navigation Pub in Gnosall we aim to be here for 4pm! 

 If you would like to join me at any stage please do, your support will appreciated!

 The day will be followed by a Charity Fund raising evening at The Oak, Church Eaton. There will be live music, food, a Gin Raffle and an Auction which includes a weekend away in Barmouth! 

More details will follow. I am supporting the fighters, admiring the Survivors, honouring the taken and never ever giving up on hope 🦋.

Route Planning ... !

Today has been spent route planning!

Walk route = 7.5 miles 
I'll be starting at the Oak in Church Eaton and doing a big loop up towards High Onn finishing back at The Oak in Church Eaton.

Cycle Route = 8.5 miles 
Again starting at the Oak in Church Eaton where I'll head down the lanes toward The Swan at Whiston then toward Stretton and across to The Bridge Pub in Brewood. 

Kayak Route = 8 miles 
Starting at the Bridge Pub in Brewood where we'll travel along the Shropshire Union Canal arriving at the Lock in Wheaton Aston by the Hartley. This will mark the the final leg to Gnosall finishing at the Navigation Pub! 

For anyone wanting to follow the route on the day I've been considerate in providing watering hole markers 🤣. At least you'll be fed, watered and able to keep warm dry if the weather isn't kind !!!!! 

Next to sort out the licence/permission with the Canals and River Trust! 💜🦋💜🦋💜

Thank you for supporting me
