This June.. I'm Walking All Over Cancer!

For too long I've been needing something to give me the kick up the bum I need to get started with my weight loss. When I saw an advert for Cancer Research UK's Walk All Over Cancer campaign I instantly signed up!
It's a challenge to walk 10,000 steps a day every day in June! It would be roughly 5 miles a day so by the end of it I will have completed around 150 miles! As I'm currently unemployed it will give me something to do every day and we've all heard about the positive effects exercise has on mental well being!

I also want to do this in memory of my grandma, who I never met, who died young from breast cancer, and my other grandma who is a breast cancer survivor. As breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK with it making up 15% of those suffering from it, it would be a great way to try and do my part and raise some money towards a fantastic cause!

I would encourage anyone to sign up as it's free to do so and it's a great way to get outdoors and get some exercise!

I'll be writing up weekly blog posts of my progress, how I'm finding it and how much I manage to raise. So make sure to follow me on Twitter to keep up to date and know when a new post is up!

Here is my fundraising page to those who want to have a look! Anything raised is better than nothing! :)

Thanks for reading and I'm excited for the challenge! :)
