At this time of year it’s traditional to overestimate our resources of grit and determination and to make promises that we can’t keep about our future virtue, but this year why not put the new into your New Year’s resolutions and inspire yourself by setting a different kind of goal for 2018 that will support Marie Curie and increase your fitness levels at the same time by signing up to take part in one of their amazing treks!

Marie Curie treks are a fantastic way to see the places you never imagined you could! From the picturesque views of Great Wall of China to the glorious setting of the Peak District – there really is an experience for everyone. Marie Curie treks are designed to provide participants with an enormous sense of achievement, new friendships and the opportunity to raise serious sponsorship for your local Marie Curie services. With a little training a trek can be within everyone’s capabilities and it truly is the experience of a lifetime.

Marie Curie Community Fundraiser Lauren Alexander is on the lookout for people interested in taking on a new challenge for 2018, saying: “Not only will you feel the buzz the outdoors but, by taking part in a sponsored trek, you will also be enabling Marie Curie to continue caring for people living with a terminal illness, and their loved one through the local Marie Curie nursing service. In Lincolnshire, we have over 85 nurses and this is thanks to members of the public for helping us to fund them each year.”

Your Marie Curie trek place includes training guides to help you get going, a fundraising pack, a Marie Curie T-shirt and also access to a private Facebook group just for your trek so you can chat with fellow trekkers beforehand, sharing tips and training stories along the way.

If you are up for the challenge, please contact your local Community Fundraiser, Lauren on 07525 80531 or lauren.alexander@mariecurie.org.uk. She’ll be delighted to find the right trek for you and explain everything that you need to know. So stick to this year’s resolution, get fit and get the Marie Curie t-shirt for 2018!
