My story

[lt]h2[gt]Thank you very much for visiting this page.[lt]/h2[gt][lt]h2[gt][b][i][span=color: #5437c7;]After an eleven year break, I have persuaded Paul to join me on another mad charity challenge.[/span][/i][/b][lt]/h2[gt][p]This time we're trekking in Arizona and Utah, up and down canyons all around the majestic Grand Canyon. Six days of strenous walking following in the ancient footsteps of the Navajo Indians. Walking over 50 kilometres....with lots of steep ascents and descents, deserts, canyons, and rock trails. Not only will the days be challenging but so will the evenings and nights! Firstly Paul will have to help in getting the tent up..given he is so practical and loves a spot of energetic erecting at the end of the day, we should be fine??? And for those who know me well...AKA the princess and the pea..sleeping on hard ground is going to be very challenging.[/p][p]So why are we doing it?.....I have been involved with Pancreatic Cancer UK for over 7 years, first as trustee and over last 3 years as Chair. In that time PCUK has grown from a tiny charity with just one employee into a fantastic organisation that is starting to have a real impact in the fight against pancreatic cancer. For far too long this disease has been sidelined. I am really proud of all the important work that PCUK has done and continues to do. As part of my 'leaving gift' I wanted to mark the occasion in a way that would be memorable and would support the excellent work the team are doing. [/p][p]I am also doing this in memory of Trace Allen, who was instrumental in the early days at PCUK.[/p][p]We are funding ourselves 100% to take part in this challenge so all the money raised will go directly to PCUK and will not pay for any airbed I might need in the desert![/p][p]So dig deep...it's for a very good cause. Pancreatic cancer is tough. Tough to diagnose, tough to treat, tough to survive. We know its tough, but things are changing, and we want to transform the future for everyone affected by the disease.[/p][lt]h2[gt]Thank you very much[lt]br /[gt]All the best from Sarah and Paul [lt]/h2[gt][p][/p]
