Team story

[p][b]KEITH & ANDREA'S WALL.........[/b][/p][p][b]What’s this about a wall then?[/b][/p][p]Well, we (Andrea Hudson and Keith Wilkinson) are going to run the length of one. [/p][p]But it’s not just any wall. [/p][p]It’s Hadrian Wall and it’s 70 miles long and runs from Carlisle to Newcastle. [/p][p]Both of us like running and have done Marathons but this takes it to the next level. We intend to run the full 70 miles in 2 days, so 2 ultramarathons back to back (in Andrea’s words “it’ll be fine”). We should have been doing this last year but due to COVID it was postponed like most things. [/p][p]The good thing about this is we had more time to train (one of us has taken more advantage of that than the other 🤷)!! The bad thing is they have changed the course and instead of doing an even 35 miles per day we have to do 44 miles on day one and 26 miles on day two!! 😣[/p][p] [/p][p]It's just a wall, what can go wrong?[/p][p] [/p][p][url=https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fratracethewall.co.uk%2F&data=04%7C01%7Candrea.hudson%40hmrc.gov.uk%7C90ab4588c02a4dbcbfba08d91b679661%7Cac52f73cfd1a4a9a8e7a4a248f3139e1%7C0%7C0%7C637570953973222967%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=0bLTKWzUcBvb5d8BduQEFKWn2siQ1XGfjYKTkvMaHZY%3D&reserved=0]Click here[/url] to find out more about “The Wall” challenge.[/p][p] [/p][p][b]Why are we doing this?[/b][/p][p]During 2019, a colleague and friend of ours Meta found out the cancer she’d previously battled against had returned. Meta’s resilience and determination to beat this inspired us to take on a challenge that was beyond anything either of us had ever done before hoping to raise vital funds for one of the national cancer charities. [/p][p]Sadly, Meta lost her battle against cancer in 2020 and although she will never get to know how we get on, she will hopefully be with us in spirit. This was a difficult time for us both but makes us more determined to raise as much money as possible in memory of Meta by taking part in this event. [/p][p]We decided to fundraise for the charity “[url=https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.childrenwithcancer.org.uk%2F&data=04%7C01%7Candrea.hudson%40hmrc.gov.uk%7C90ab4588c02a4dbcbfba08d91b679661%7Cac52f73cfd1a4a9a8e7a4a248f3139e1%7C0%7C0%7C637570953973232964%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=Jc2K3XPJxRqOlAqSoDLarshnLBHnt3Vq83F5CjNhuvo%3D&reserved=0]Children with Cancer UK[/url]” which is supported by the organisers of “The Wall”. We’re both closely linked to local cancer charities but know people across the UK so it makes sense to pick a national charity and feel Meta would have liked this. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Children with Cancer UK lost 40% of it’s funding during 2020 so please, please donate whatever you can to support us in this “slightly scary” challenge.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you in advance 😊[/p][p][br][/p][p]Andrea and Keith[/p][p][br][/p][p]Every day 12 families in the UK receive the devastating news that their child has cancer. Through funding vital specialist research, Children with Cancer UK has done everything in its power to give these children the best chance to survive. [/p][p]With your support Children with Cancer UK can fund over 60 research projects across the UK accelerating breakthroughs to help drive up childhood cancer survival rates and find kinder, more effective treatments to reduce long-term side effects. This ground breaking research saves children's lives and would otherwise go unfunded. [/p][p]Knowing treatment can be especially challenging for family life, Children with Cancer UK also helps fund patient family accommodation near hospitals so families can stay together during their children's treatment. We also organise unforgettable days out for children and their families to create memories that will never be lost. [/p][p]But we still have so much more to do. A single child dying from cancer is one too many. With your support, we are helping to create a future in which every child with cancer survives and experiences the life changing moment when they ring the end of treatment bell.[/p][p]Thank you for helping to save the lives of children with cancer and keep families together.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Children with Cancer UK. [/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
