Throughout the month of March, Maria will be walking 5 miles a day to raise vital funds for Cancer Research UK. In recent months, Maria has developed Arthritis in her feet, which will unfortunately make walking 10,000 steps every day for a month, all the more challenging, yet she remains dedicated to the cause despite the pain she will face. Through this initiative, Maria hopes to raise £400.00 for this fantastic charity.
Maria is joining the thousands of steppers across the nation who are coming together this March to join the fight against cancer. Every step taken and pound donated, will contribute to helping Cancer Research UK to reach their goals. By 2034 Cancer Research UK aim to reach their goal of 3 in 4 people surviving their cancer. Fundraising has enabled consistent progress and the discovery of new ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer, and in result, cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years. It is through the generosity, commitment, and selflessness of people like Maria, that results will improve even faster.
When we asked Maria why she chose to take on this challenge, this is what she said: “I decided to do this as my beautiful and brave friend had such fantastic care in her battle against cancer. Her journey is amazing and encouraging for anyone facing this disease. Let’s help other people like my friend have the treatments needed and research to hopefully one day rid the world of the word ‘cancer’.”
Accompanying Maria on her daily trek, will be her pup, Belle. Belle is a miniature labradoodle “lockdown” pup, who loves to go on long walks, and will enjoy accompanying Maria each and every day.
We are incredibly proud to be supporting Maria on her mission, and we aim to help her to raise as much as possible. Every penny raised will go to Cancer Research UK, to help fund life-saving research in the aim of beating cancer sooner.
