My target 295000 Steps

I'm taking part in the Walk in Her Name Step Challenge in aid of Ovarian Cancer Action

Every year, 295,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer globally. Approximately half of these women will not survive beyond five years. March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and I’m taking 295,000 steps throughout the month to raise funds for life-saving research that will help these women, and the next generation, survive.

Please help me take 295,000 steps, raise £295 and move research forward. #stepforeverywoman

FINISHED!

Friday 19th Mar
And so my legs are shattered but I’ve done 295,000 steps in March - one for every woman who will be diagnosed with the terrible ovarian cancer this year. I’m going to keep stepping on this year as every other step can represent just a drop in the ocean of all the people who have had this disease before. Please follow the link to my page to find out about Ovarian Cancer Action to donate if you can for this lovely fantastic charity. They do some incredible work and this project has been really hard but rewarding to do with our whole family!! #TeamJan #OvarianCancerAction #WalkInHerName

Not far left!

Tuesday 16th Mar
After a few longer runs as my marathon training has increased, I’ve now got up to 272k steps which is crazy!! Nearly there but I’m going to keep going above and beyond when we make it :) any donations are happily received for this fantastic charity!! #TeamJan #OCA In the meantime here’s some grey pictures of the Reddish Vale from Sunday!

Running and walking in her name

Wednesday 10th Mar
On Sunday I managed to bash out a 34km (21mil) run up to Lyme Park and back on the edge of the Peak District. It was pretty savage but it makes the majority of my steps so far. Running during this lockdown has been a godsend for my mental health but it has given me life and character I never thought I had. This is all stuff that I think Nan would be extremely proud of and it keeps me positive knowing every step I take, run in the rain, or chatty walks with Emma, is closer to that target to which we are all working. With all that walk/running I’m only just past half way and every step is 1 woman who gets this horrible news. It’s an eye opener I’ve never felt before. All donations go to OCA a phenomenal charity looking at the fundamentals of research into ovarian cancer and how to fight it.

Day 1/31: Remembering and Motivating

Monday 1st Mar
Today begins the long slug: my amazing/crazy family have enrolled me as part of this #WalkInHerName where we walk 295,000 in memory of Nan. As those who know me will already be aware, Nan was quite a superhero to me but to see where I've gotten in the last year she'd be damn proud. I'm weaving these steps into my running training this year and I'm happy to say a good start - almost 20,000 for the first day with a 7.5km run in there! Every day this month we'll remember her and the struggle she went through. 

Stepping for Nan

Saturday 20th Feb
So here it is! We’re about 8 days out from a month of stepping to make some money for this fantastic charity!! If we’re honest, Nan was my favourite person in the whole world and just doing a few more steps than intended and getting off my ass for a month.. so that people like her can maybe get the help they need? It’s a small price to pay. But it doesn’t mean anything without any donations: so please donate. This is one step taken for every strong and brave woman who gets the sinking feeling of the news of this cancer. And we’re step step stepping for someone we’ve loved and/or someone we’ve lost to this shitty disease. Xx
