The reason I am taking part in this challenge is to raise as much money and awareness as I possibly can. Also I feel this will be an amazing challenge for me to overcome and experience I can't wait to get out there. Such an amazing opportunity.
I am doing this challenge as my Dad died of Lymphoma 3 years ago, so I am doing it in his memory and to hopefully one day prevent other people having to go through this disease.
I'm absolutely delighted to have joined the Alaska team! This is going to be the toughest test I have ever faced, and I can't wait to get started! I'm really looking forward to being part of this team, and hope that between us we can raise as much money as possible to help Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research beat blood cancer!
I am taking on this challenge for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research as its such an amazing charity and I want to raise as much money for them as I can, so they can carry on their research and hopefully one day find a cure."
