CoppaFeel! founder pays tribute to the amazing people fundraising for breast cancer research

It’s that time of year again, where amazing people take on a rather big challenge in collaboration with our BFFs at Fabulous and some celebrity pals.

I am always so in awe of our fundraisers.

Some of our trekkers have gone to extraordinary lengths to reach their target.

There are participants who are breast cancer survivors or who are currently going though treatment.

It’s also great to see familiar faces from previous treks once again taking part in what is now one of the most incredible events in the CoppaFeel! calendar.

Our fundraising is currently at £150,000 and counting, which will go a great distance in ensuring we continue to change and save lives.

This year’s trek takes part in Dracula’s home region of Transylvania.

I know just how amazing they will all feel because I, too, am a Fabulous Challenge veteran having taken part in the 2016 Iceland challenge alongside the brilliant Vicky Pattison and Chloe Madeley.

I still look back at that trip with the biggest of grins because it truly was a breakthrough physical challenge for me and an opportunity to push my body to even more extremes.

REMIND to 70500.

And it proved I really could do some crazy stuff if I put my mind to it.

With five years of Fabulous challenges under our belts we are inching ever closer to the £1million grand fundraising total and I would quite confidently say that next year we will see that target smashed.

I can’t even begin to explain how profoundly proud that makes me.

It’s surreal to think that our little charity would achieve such big things.

Right now I am writing this column at silly o’clock in the morning as I mentally prepare myself for brain treatment called Gamma Knife that will zap six tiny brain tumours to smithereens.

I have had this treatment before so I know what to expect although that doesn’t make it any less challenging to deal with.

I guess what I am trying to say is that with the money raised through amazing events like this trek we can ensure others don’t have to endure such monumentally rubbish experiences like these.

We endeavour to make diagnosis an early one, a treatable one and, most importantly, a beatable one. I hope all our trekkers know just what an important role they play in the futures of so many young folk.
