I have had a lot of experience over the years with the work Macmillan do. They have provided support to my family, friends and colleagues and I wanted to do something to give back and say thank you.

The Trek will take place over 5 days and over watchtowers, mountains and through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail. We will be ‘lending a hand’ repairing a section of the wall that is currently being reconstructed. I will be trekking 36 KM (approx. 22 miles) of the 8,851 KM wall (5,500 miles).

This Trek will be challenging due to the number of steps taken up and down each day, with one notable challenge being to conquer the 1,000 steps up to the wall at a place called Mutianyu. My training has now begun for this challenge in October 2019. Why am I taking on this challenge? My grandmother was diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and lost her battle early 2013. I then lost a close friend to cancer in 2016.

Macmillan provided support to both of them and their families.

The work they do is amazing. Any support in helping me raise funds for their cause would be much appreciated. For more information my page is: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/kerrysaundersbakerdavies, or just search Kerry Saunders.

Many thanks in advance.
