Getting ready to walk all over cancer
Date: 30 January 2018
A member of the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) team is preparing to take on an ultra-challenge to help walk all over cancer.
In May, safeguarding facilitator Denise Kendall will be walking from London to Brighton to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
Combining her love of exercise with a passion to help contribute towards lifesaving cancer research, a gruelling 100km continuous sponsored walk seemed the way forward.
Denise’s intensive training is well underway and her latest session saw her head out from Biggleswade ambulance station with colleague Anna Price for a 24 mile walk, which they completed in just over eight hours.
Denise said: “So many people I know have been affected by cancer so this is my way of showing my support and that I care. Since my first encounter with this disease through my father-in-law to be, 26 years ago, I have watched it affect my oldest friend, my best friend, and some of my colleagues.
“I was always scared of fundraising but I'm now taking on this ultra-challenge for an ultra-cause to make up for all those 5k and 10k charity runs which I never did.”
