Our Everest - BLF

My Activity Tracking

131
kms

My target 130 kms

1 in 5 people in the UK have a lung condition. I want to make a difference this New Year

Myself and my brother-in-law Jamie are taking part in this challenge in memory of Lisa - my sister, Jamie's partner.


I’m taking on Our Everest for the BLF this January. I’m walking 130km, the same as the Everest Base Camp trek, because 2021 will be a mountain to overcome for people with lung disease.

Just £14 could fund an hour of life saving research. I'd be very grateful for any donations you could make!

The more people that know about British Lung Foundation, the greater their impact, so please help get the word out by sharing my page with your friends and family.
