Hey guys! So this week I am very happy and proud to announce that starting from 1st March 2018, for the whole month that I am going to be doing a sponsored walk for Cancer Research. I am going to walk 10,000 steps a day, every day for a month. This is my first ever sponsored anything!
So here I am to talk about it (Of course I am, who do you take me for)…
Sadly, Cancer affects so many people, all over the world. I was going to add statistics but I didn’t actually realise how many people are affected by this dreadful disease. I mean, I did, but I didn’t, not really. Millions of people are affected.
It’s a horrible disease that causes heartache in families.
When I saw the advert for this sponsored walk, I signed myself up straight away and honestly, I’m really excited to do it. I know I can do it.
My goal, as I’m writing this (22/02/18) is to raise £100, I didn’t want to aim too high or too low so I’m sticking with £100. If I raise my goal then I will change it (I’ll keep you all updated, of course, I will).
When setting up my fundraising page it asked me 3 things:
My Motivation: I want to do something to help so I’m doing this! Let’s beat Cancer together!
My Story: Hi there, I don’t really have a story so here’s a little bit about me. My names Alison but everyone calls me Ally (Ally is better), I’m 19 years old and studying childcare at college. I own a blog (Which might be where you got this link from) where I write about bullying and different topics that are on my mind. I have a great support group of friends and family that are really happy and supportive of me doing this. I have known a few people who have had the terrible disease (also known as cancer), some have bravely fought it but sadly passed away and some have fought it off (Which is amazing!). I wish I could do more to help but until then this will have to do. In March I’m going to be walking all over cancer!
My Target: £100
The whole sponsored walk for a month is really clever because even though the goal is to walk 10,000 steps a day, if I don’t manage it on one day because of work or college or something, then I can catch up the next day or whenever. As long as I catch up by the end of March.
So here’s what I’m going to do, 10,000 steps a day or at least 310,000 steps within March. Wondering how I’m going to track my steps? I’m going to use my Fitbit watch which I was bought for my birthday! I’m very excited about all of this.
If anyone would like to donate towards what I am doing, I would really appreciate it. Even if it’s 10p! It’s 10p towards my goal!

Okay, so that’s it. If you do donate anything towards what I am doing – Thank you very much! I really appreciate it! Until next time… Much love – Ally xx
