My Story

Within a period of just 8 months I experienced two life-changing events...the outcome of either could have been very different. I do not like to dwell on what might have happened but it taught me that life is so precious & “someone” was looking over me on both of those days. When I applied for the Coppafeel Himalayan Trek I stated that in essence I wanted to stretch myself, push myself outside of my comfort zone, do something for me for once, make a little me time, life is too short...I knew from personal experience plus I wanted to be part of a team, meet incredible new people, see the Himalayas firsthand from a natural viewpoint but more importantly raise lots of money for Coppafeel.

This Himalayan adventure will indeed challenge me mentally, physically & emotionally walking up to 9 hours/day at an altitude between 1700-2757m in the Dhauladhar mountain range but the ability to raise a large sum of money for such an important charity would be an absolute privilege. The work that Coppafeel do to raise awareness of breast cancer through education & empowerment of young people is truly inspiring. I hope that my children are given the same opportunity to be pro-active about their own health as they journey into adulthood & by raising money for Coppafeel I hope the charity continues to grow each year. https://himalayascoppafeel.everydayhero.com/uk/Jo-Coppafeel-Himalayan-Adventure

The only apprehension I have is spending time apart from my young family. Well I nurture my four children, I tell them “they cannot at the moment” when they tell me “they can’t”, I hold their hand when they want/need me to & let go when they don’t. My children are already so proud that their mama will be trekking through the Himalayas for charity. There is a family history of breast cancer on their father’s side of the family so this fundraising challenge is even more important. I also want to teach my children that if you BELIEVE you can ACHIEVE anything your heart desires & this trek will hopefully INSPIRE them to follow their dreams wherever they may take them. I shall definitely be trekking through the Himalayas for them 💕...

So all I hope now is that having read all of the above you feel that you would like to help such a worthwhile charity by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. Please spread the word too...tell your friends & family about CoppaFeel! by sharing my page. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means so much to me...
