Why Becky has joined Women V Cancer 100k your way

From the 24th July to 2nd August, hundreds of kind people will come together to complete 100km however, wherever and with whoever they want for Breast Cancer Now, Ovarian Cancer Action and Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust, at a time when they need it most.

One of the awesome people taking on the Women V Cancer 100k your way challenge is Becky Eglinton. Having raised over £119, increased her fundraising target and made her profile shine in just a few short days, Becky is already smashing her challenge - and it hasn't even started yet!

Here, she shares her story and hopes to inspire more people to support our cause.

"I have had breast cancer twice, last time being TNBC (Triple-negative breast cancer) and culminating in a double mastectomy, chemo and radiotherapy.

At the same time, I had two friends with cancer, one in the business next door to me and one in a business round the corner. One had ovarian cancer and the other breast cancer and had fought it for years.

One day, we stood in my office, all three of us bald, laughing at the state of us and I buried them within 24 hours apart.

I feel passionately about trying to raise funds as I know how hard COVID-19 has affected charities.

Also, I have raised funds through Art for Cure and supported them and supported Breast Cancer Now through my business.

I am not terribly fit, but I am determined. I plan to complete the challenge on my bike over three/four days.

I had signed up for Women V Cancer Cycle Thailand 2020, but my doctor banned me due to health reasons and the humidity, so I was delighted when Dream Challenges came up with this brilliant idea.

I do hope more people will support me and others in this fab challenge."

Women V Cancer 100k Your Way is a fantastic opportunity for people from all walks of life to raise vital funds for three very important charities, at a time when they need your support more than ever.

Challenge yourself to conquer 100km in 10 days for women facing cancer across the UK. Do it anywhere in any way at any pace you like. Complete it all in one day/night or spread it out over the whole ten days.

Thousands of awesome people will be challenging themselves to the same distance over the same ten days, so you're never alone.
