My fitness levels are terrible. My tummy wobbles when I walk. I get out of breath when walking up hills. The furthest I usually walk is from my desk to the kettle to make a cup of tea (and grab a sneaky biscuit!!). I keep wondering why I am willingly going to drag myself along 25km of the Jurassic Coast Path on Saturday 14th May, as I know I am going to find it really hard going and my muscles are going to complain afterwards – the reason for pushing myself out of my comfort-zone is the The Wave Project.
The charity means a huge amount to myself and my daughter, Erin. Having completed the six week Surf Course at Sidmouth last summer, Erin is now looking forward to getting back in the water with Surf Club this month, and without the kind donations from amazing supporters, she would not have been able to access such a wonderful opportunity. When Erin is in the water, she can forget all her anxieties, her fears, her worries, the fact that she feels different to her peers. She can just be herself, at one with the waves and gaining confidence as she tackles the challenge of learning to surf. I am ‘Walking for Wave’ on Saturday 14th May to raise vital funds for this amazing charity in the hope that I will be able to help just a tiny bit to make it possible for other children, like Erin, to access the great work that the Wave Project offers. If you can spare just a few pennies, I would be so grateful. Thank you for your support.
