Snowdon Hourseshoe walk in aid of Psuedomyxoma Peritonei reseach

On 21st August 2010 I along with several freinds will be attempting the Snowdon Horseshoe walk to raise funds for Basingstoke and Northampshire Hospital -Pseudomyxoma Peritonei fund. The hospital is one of only two specialist centres in the country and the money will help buy equipment and fund research into this little known form of Cancer.

Only 1 in every million people will contract this desease and information and statistics are scarce. I was diagnosed with the desease last year and underwent surgery at Basingstoke on the 2nd of Feb 2010. I spent 12hrs on the operating table, a week in Intensive Care and a week on the specialist ward.

This blog will follow the team and their training over the next few months and ultimately report on the walk itself.........

There is also a link to our Just giving site below to allow money to be raised on line. Please give generously!

One week to go.....

So its exactly one week to go until the main event itself. This time next week we will be on the mountain and hopefully a good way around the horseshoe by now. Hopefully the weather will be better than it is today.
In the time since my last post lots has gone on. I have made a return to running and managed a 3 mile,flat,steady run twice a week. I was conscious that I needed to try and improve my fitness levels but not get injured so have deliberately tried to take it steady.
In an effort to try and raise the profile of PMP Steve has done very well and managed to get a great piece in the local paper. The article discusses Steve's PMP story and promotes our fund raising walk.You can read the article by following the link below-
