My story

[p]On the 17th of April 2020 I will be partaking in the Himalayas Trek in Nepal with Global Adventure Challenges for [b]Vital Signs Foundation[/b] and [b]Tim Bacon Foundation[/b]. Both charities have a place in mine and my families hearts. At the age of 16 months, a similar age to my son now, my Father had a sudden heart attack when returning home from training with the Army in Germany which sadly took his life. Having a healthy heart and early detection is something I feel very passionate about and something that Vital Signs Foundation provide. June marks 30 years since my Dad passed away and I therefore want to do something in his memory and want others to take advantage of the screenings so like me can spend as much time as possible with their families. Vital Signs Foundation provide heart screenings to young people aged 16 - 35 to help prevent Sudden Cardiac Arrest. [/p][p]I am also choosing to fundraise for Tim Bacon Foundation who’s aim is to support local charities for people living with cancer. Personally to my family, they have helped support the Christie Hospital’s fundraising appeal for the first Proton Beam Therapy centre in the UK located in Manchester where my Mum’s partner Chris is currently being treated. [/p][p]The trek takes place in the Annapurna region of the Himalayas of Nepal. We will be trekking for 6 days for approximately 48km, summiting at the Himalayan Peak of Poon Hill. Anyone that knows the current state of my legs and the continuous trekking with two different size feet will know it will be a challenge in itself. I therefore, along with my charities really do appreciate any donations you can give. [/p]
