Back in April, in a slight moment of madness, I decided to apply to take part in a 4-day 75km trek in Oman. I really didn't expect to be one of the 50 people selected (out of 370 applicants) yet here I am, one of those very people going!
I’m overwhelmed at the prospect of being part of #TeamBoobs where we will be raising vital funds for Coppafeel!, a wonderful charity whose mission is to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer to help with early detection, particularly among the younger generation. The trek takes place from 4th November along the ancient footpaths of the Oman Mountains for a truly off the beaten track challenge! We’ll be spending all day hiking rough terrain in the desert heat and then having to set up camp each evening. We'll also by joined by team leaders, Greg Rutherford, Olympic Long Jump Gold Medalist and Giovanna Fletcher, Author, Actress and Vlogger.
As I think most friends know, my wonderful Mummy has been hit with this awful disease on more than one occasion, first being diagnosed at only 37. I now have an increased risk of contracting the disease and naturally regularly ‘coppafeel’ so I know I’m doing all that I can to detect any signs as early as possible.
As much as I cherish my gorgeous boys and I know I’m instrumental in their upbringing, my life does feel somewhat like groundhog day! I’m looking forward to pushing myself outside of this box and working towards something extra specially amazing as well as raising as much money as physically possible for this wonderful cause. I’ll be holding a couple of events over the next few months so keep an eye out for details as I’d love to have lots of people involved. One may involve John being in pain so I’m sure to draw big crowds in for that!!!
