In memory of Ellie MacDonald

'Ellie'  - Born: 09/02/1991 - Passed away: 18/09/2014

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at the 1 Million Miles for Ellie fundraising page - I hope that it will inspire you, as Ellie has inspired her family and friends, to do something to make a difference and contribute to three wonderful charities, Cancer Research UK, Maggies Centres and MacMillan Cancer Support.

"1 Million Miles for Ellie, 1 million pounds for those touched by cancer" is a concept arrived at whilst walking the beaches near home in February 2015 wondering how I would ever get over losing Ellie, our daughter and one of my best friends, at such a young age, 23 in September 2014 - a million miles seemed an enormous enough distance to heal my pain and when I coupled this with Ellies no. 1 desire on her bucket list to "Destroy Cancer" - a campaign was born!

Whether you decide to do the ordinary - walk to the shops for a week and contribute the money saved on fuel or bus fares to the cause cycle to work collect a million pennies in your community or the extraordinary - a triathlon, kayak for miles, bungee jump it, sail it, dance it, tough mudder it, or munro bag it - the choice is yours and the possibilities endless!


Every penny raised will make a difference to someone touched by cancer - A penny, ten pennies, a pound or pounds - any amount large or small will make a difference to so many - please do what you can and have fun doing it!

Michelle, Ellies proud Mum x
