Team Datson do the Double Dozen

By Naomi Datson

My Activity Tracking


My target 963 miles

I am Taking It On this November

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and in the UK, 24 people die from pancreatic cancer every day. So we are taking on Challenge 24 to raise vital funds for Pancreatic Cancer UK . Our fundraising will support world-leading research to help find breakthroughs in new treatments and improve the speed of diagnosis. 

It is a cause very close to our hearts, which began 20 years ago when Vera our precious Mum and Nan died of this cancer only 3 months after being taken ill. Marge was then diagnosed 6 years later but we are thankful that she is one of the lucky 1% who survive 10 years after diagnosis (14 years on and going strong!!)

This is very much going to be a team effort and we are all planning a number of challenges:

Marge plans to walk 240 miles in November including 24 miles in 24 hours on World  Pancreatic Cancer Day (19th November).

Jeremy will hobble 2.4 miles with his gammy knee each day!!

Nay will run 240 miles, paddleboard 24 miles and roller blade 24 miles throughout the month as well as attempting a quadrathlon (24 mile run, 24 mile mountain bike, 2.4 mile paddleboard and 2.4 mile rollerblade in one day).

Jules will join Nay for the quadrathlon and will also cover 240 miles biking/running.

Ray will be running 24 miles in 24 hours every weekend in November.

Han will be doing 24 days in a row of Les Mills classes.

Bill will be cycling 240 miles.

Jenny is walking 24 miles a week.

Margaret is walking 24 miles, skipping 2.4 minutes a day and drinking 2.4 cl of wine a day!!

The kids will be doing lots of challenges throughout the month!!

We are also accepting challenges which are “24 themed” so feel free to suggest something for any team member and we will give it our best effort!
