John and Sandra Reeve invite you to take part in this epic trek

John Reeve and his wife Sandra are asking you to join them on a life changing experience:

"Since our younger son, Tim, died of ALL at the age of 23 in 2005, Sandra and I have thrown ourselves into fundraising to help improve survival rates for other blood cancer patients as well as help to ease our pain. We've organised dozens of events from Barn Dances to Dragon Boat Events and from a Deca-Ironman to Forget Me Not Walks.  We’ve taken part in many events but never together.

We wanted something that would be physically active but not too strenuous or demanding and, of course; enable us to raise more money for Bloodwise. This challenge takes us to a place on our bucket list and ticks other boxes too:

  1. 10 days in China with 5 days of walking - no more than 8 miles per day - interspersed with 5 days of cultural visits
  2. Organised by Action Challenge who have a very good reputation and have worked with Bloodwise on several events
  3. An opportunity to tag on extra days before or after the trek.
  4. Three payment/fundraising options ranging from a full payment of £1800 to a minimum payment of £399 backed by fundraising of at least £2800

Sandra and I are definitely signing up for the Autumn 2016 trek from October 21-30.  But if we can get a group of 10-24 people together, we can organise our own Bloodwise Trek with the scope to tailor the itinerary.
