For my 3rd walk on 20th September we were yet again blessed with amazing weather. It was the hottest one so far and the walk was completed by 31 people. I'd like to say a BIG thank you to Andrea, who is still recovering from her stage 3 Bowel Cancer but still managed to rally up lots of her friends and family to take part in Covid safe groups of 6 or less.
I'd also like to thank the Michelle and Richard for taking part with their gorgeous family and dogs, my dear friend Lucy and daughter Lily for being my support for the day and a new friend called Gemma, who had sadly lost her husband Kevin to this cruel cancer only 5 months ago. Kev was only 42 when he died and their story was sadly all too similar to that of Marty's.
During the walk, we took the time to reflect on our experiences and enjoyed some fun on the inventive handmade swings built into the trees - which made us feel 10 years old again.
We stopped and treated ourselves to a lovely lunch in Trenance Gardens and by the time we crossed the finish line and said our goodbyes, we had reached an amazing £680 for Bowel Cancer UK.
Blog - Never too Young
This blog is to carry on Marty's fighting spirit and help raise awareness of bowel cancer to others. It is also a place for you to share any of the things you have done or are doing in memory of him.
