My story

[p]Since 2006 I have been an incomplete paraplegic and a wheelchair user unable to access the Lake District. Over the last 2 years, I have battled to improve my mental health and my overall physical ability. Its been tough! As a lover of the Lakes prior to my injury, it was my personal goal to get back into the Lake District with my family. [/p][p]On the 30th December 2020, I climbed Dodd Summit in my wheelchair with no intention of reaching the top. I just wanted to push myself to see what I could achieve and the photo above shows what I achieved with determination and will power. Since then, I've pushed myself up to the top of Latrigg (again in my wheelchair) and I have now set myself the personal goal to complete all 214 Wainwrights. [/p][p]As lockdown number 3 is currently in place, I've taken on a different challenge to support two charities which make a massive difference to thousands of lives in Cumbria; Eden Valley Hospice and The Calvert Trust. Weather-permitting I will begin the Lands End to John O’Groats Virtual Challenge in my wheelchair with the ambition to complete 874 miles in 10 weeks. I'm doing this in memory of my sister, Helen Deans, who lost her battle in November to pancreatic cancer. She was one of the strongest women I knew. Any donations are hugely appreciated.[/p]
