As well as raising money for FTEC charity, what impact do you hope your fight has on those watching?
I really hope that people see me – an ‘almost 50’ year old who had never considered herself physically fit – as an inspiration. You never know what is going to click for you so get out there and try different things, there are so many awesome sports available to take part in and you just never know what is going to resonate….just get out there and try something!
I hope that people watching will feel motivated by our journey, motivated to keep on fighting, and do whatever it takes to finally put an end to this disease.
Raising the money was very important for me and that is why I set a high goal. It was such a challenge managing two jobs and the fundraiser but it can be done. So if anybody wishes to pursue other passions my advice is go for it, there’s always a way it can be done. I’m not saying it will be easy, but you will come out a stronger person because of it.
I hope to inspire other women attending the event.
Never in a million years would I have imagined taking on a challenge like this. In fact, some people still laugh when I tell them what I’m doing. Take a chance, trust yourself, and have fun!
