Not just 27 miles along a straight, easy to walk, soft under foot type of walk either … 27 miles up and down the mountains they call the Brecon Beacons for charity.
This is where a team of 7 people, known as Team Leo, will be heading on the weekend of June 7/8th. And it is all in aid of the children’s charity CLIC Sargent who helped my family and I throughout Leo, my son’s, cancer diagnosis and treatment back in 2008.
In fact, along with me on this (27 mile?!) trek will be Louise Hewitt and also Gillian Davies, both of whom are key members of the 2S Recruitment team, and they recently opened up the North West office for 2S Recruitment.
Other members of Team Leo, all raising vital funds for CLIC Sargent are Julie from Sutherland Saddlery and also three fantastic parents from my son’s school, even though Leo has not been well enough to attend school since November 2012 due to late effects of the cancer treatment.
I am really proud to have thought initially I’d be doing this trek (did I mention it was 27 miles … up and then down and then up and then down some very big hills / mountains!!) and now we are a fantastic team of 7, all with different motivations for wanting to jump on board the fundraising train (but only training from now on, and now trains for us!)
We shall keep you posted as to how our training and fundraising is going, as well as sending a little plea out there for some sponsorship closer to the time.
