Why 365 days of action

I was aiming to raise Β£365,000 in 365 days. On 1st May 2020 I embarked on the following journey as listed below, on what many have called my β€œ365 Days Of Action” to raise awareness of cancer and to show others that you should never give up. In the process I want to raise money for the following charities close to my heart Cancer Research, Combat Stress and Mountain Rescue who have helped myself and others along our journeys in life. Find out about my latest challenge.

Cancer Research logo

Cancer Research carry out great work and as a result I am still alive today. I have been given the opportunity to live a few more days. This has given me the chance to help others with their fitness and training for a period longer period of time. Without their contribution to the treatment of Cancer in the UK this would not have been possible.

Mountain Rescue logo

I live for the mountains. Mountain Rescue provide me with a playground to make the most of the beautiful and stunning scenery in the UK. Without Mountain Rescue I would not be able to safely take advantage of the terrain that we have on these islands. The work they do is unfounded and run by volunteers. At the drop of a hat they give up their timefrom work and family to jump in car to save lives.

Combat Stress logo

The work Combat Stress does for veterans and their families is unprecedented. Dealing with issues like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression. Having worked closely with servicemen and women directly after injury, I understand the impact mental health issues have on these people and their families before they can rebuild their lives after action in war zones.
