When I was at work this morning I got a message via facebook from my lovely friend and team mate Joanne Taylor Harrington letting me know that she and another friend of ours, Kim Rizzo, had signed up to do the Twin Cities Susan G. Komen 3-Day® which is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days.
So after a short think I decided I was in - flights are booked to join the team in Philly before heading to Minneapolis for the BIG challenge!
Over the next few months I will be training and posting updates on my progress both here and on my personal site (www.fatgirlonamissionblog.wordpress.com). Please if you can help me my fundraising do - its for a great cause and a major challenge for me!
Please support me as I take an amazing journey in the fight to end breast cancer. Net proceeds help support research, scientific programs and community-based breast health and education programs for women and men facing breast cancer.

Euro 2016 Sweepstake
Well it's 2 weeks until the Euro's start and to help with my fundraising I am running a Sweepstake with half the money in going to the kitty for prizes and half going towards my fundraising target. There are 24 teams and it's £10 (or $14.67) to take part wit the potential to win £60 ($88) for 1st place, £40 ($58.65) for 2nd and £20 ($29.32) for third.
Please message me on email@example.com if you'd like to take part - its a great way to help me raise some money for a great cause and have a little fun.
I'll undertake the draw once I have 24 people taking part (or twice if we get 48!)

Training Training Training
So I'm well into my training programme and walking most days but it's time to step it up. This weekend I need to do a good long walk on Sunday and then next week I am in France for a few days visiting my folks so must take my trainers and my bum-bag and get some miles in there.
My fundraising has been minimal and I am so very very grateful to my brilliant friends and family for getting me started. When I am back from France I'll be ramping that up too!
Thanks for your support so far
