In the midst of a pandemic, hundreds of amazing people have come together online to complete 100k your way for Women V Cancer. Over ten days, participants are walking, cycling and running 100k and raising vital funds in support of Breast Cancer Now, Ovarian Cancer Action and Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust, so that no one should have to face cancer alone.
Team McDougall has already smashed their challenge. In ten days, the thirteen team members walked 2,108kmn- the distance from Bonnybridge in Falkirk, Scotland to Monaco -and raised a whopping £3515.66 for our charities. Here, Lisa shares the story behind their team.
"I signed up to Women V Cancer 100k your way to support one of my best friends, who has been affected by cervical cancer.
We created Team McDougall to support Jill and raise money for three charities very close to our hearts.
Women V Cancer is an amazing charity to fundraise for and I know how much it means to us all to raise funds, especially for Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust, on behalf of our dear friend Jill.
Dropping Jill off at hospital for her hysterectomy, alone in the middle of a global pandemic, broke my heart. It was then that I realised I was the last friend to see her before she went for her op.
I was so relieved when I collected her from the hospital doors a few days later and she WALKED to the car! Absolute HERO! Her strength shone, as we drove home to her husband and three kids.
If Jill can walk to my car after all she's been through, then I could walk 100k in 10 days just to show my support to all these women facing cancer every day.
We will continue to smash targets and raise as much as we can."
