#CumbrianChallengeAtHome - Hitting the Hills in Worsley!

So The Crags Squad ran, hopped, skipped, ran backwards and lunged up 2 killer hills in Worsley this morning as part of our #CumbrianChallengeAtHome

Socially distancing all the way, it was tough (great prep for the Tough Challenge that lies ahead for us in October... fingers crossed) but great fun too and though we didn't make it in an amazing time due to Haribo stops, a quick gossip, motivational talks and a lot of laughs!

So we covered over 6km each - splitting the distance of the Tough Challenge between us!  

Sophie brought the Haribos and remembered her water (Roch and I didn't). Roch came up with some crazy ways to climb those hills and did it with style and pzazz! Abbie also thought ahead to bring water - which was very sensible and was a great motivator along the way. I was the one that found the perfect hilly spot! All in all we have an awesome team - one that will work amazing well together when we hit the those Cumbrian Hills! Bring it on!    

I'm supporting our wounded. Are you with me?

I've joined a team taking on the Cumbrian Challenge - to support those who served. We're taking on a big walking route around the Lake District alongside teams of veterans who are getting their lives back on track thanks to Walking With The Wounded. 

My ask is quite simple. Please dig deep, or sign up a team to take us on. 

Why? We're the lucky ones with jobs, families, homes. Most people leave the military without any issue, but for a small minority it isn't so easy. 

Walking With The Wounded support the veterans who are struggling with their mental health, who are hard to reach, socially isolated, homeless, in police custody... men and women with little to look forward to but who want to get back into society and employment – which is at the heart of what WWTW does.

Please help me and my team hit our £2k target. Every £675 can enable a veteran or their immediate family to access 1-2-1 private mental health therapy within an average of 4 days of referral. Imagine that.

Thank you so much in advance for your support.
