Why I’m doing the Castle to Castle challenge

My sister Tracey was an incredible woman with a loving husband and two fantastic children. Although feeling unwell, Tracey didn’t know she was suffering from a brain tumour. Losing someone dear to you so suddenly is very difficult. It makes you ask questions about life, some of which are unanswerable.

2017 seemed like the right time to do something to remember my sister and help others avoid the kind of loss my family and I experienced. The challenge has been in the back of my mind for a number of years, but there was always an excuse to say “next year”… Finally, I realised that I had to stop thinking about it and just do it!

So here I am, running this crazy distance to raise some real awareness for The Brain Tumour Charity. Please visit my JustGiving page to make a donation to this brilliant cause, and help change the future for people suffering from brain tumours.
