My mum, Julie Pickles, was diagnosed with ocularmelanoma, a rare form of eye cancer, in 2014. The cancer spread to her liver and she sadly died in September 2016, aged 61.

I want to raise funds for our local Cancer Support Charity – Bosom Friends. They are in the final stages of completing a new Cancer Support Centre in Barnoldswick. The centre will be used for Cancer Support Meetings and Social Meetings and will have Holistic Therapy Rooms. This is a much needed resource for our local area. Bosom Friends offer practical, financial and emotional support. THE CHARITY IS RUN SOLELY THROUGH VOLUNTEERS. They are truly amazing!

My intention is to run the 220km EcoVia route across the Algarve. The route spans the width of Portugal from the most westerly point of mainland Europe to the Spanish border. I intend to run the route over 5 consecutive days. This is the equivalent average distance of at least full marathon a day! (The furthest I have run up to this point is a half marathon)

I will update this page regularly with my progress in training – the good, the bad and the ugly.

If you choose to donate and Bosom Friends has been there for you, your family or friends, would you please comment (if you don’t want to comment please just put a love heart) this will help my friends from farther a field understand why Bosom Friends is so important to our community.

Thank you x
