Charlotte’s Walk All Over Cancer 2020

Save the date!!! Saturday 28th March, bake sale and raffle at Spektakulär for Cancer Research!

Like last year I have signed up for the 10000 steps a day challenge in March! Now this should be simple, I mean it should not be difficult to walk 10000 steps a day. Our lives surely should not be so stressful that we use the car everywhere! Hmm but it is actually not the easiest. Some days of course super easy, I walk to the shop…BUT it’s only about 6000 steps…well that is disappointing (of course I have to walk both ways)! Walk the kids to school, around 2000 steps. And so on, but to get those steps in I need to actually walk further and more often. Which is hard for someone who loves her sofa, and netflix, and wine, and everything but exercise!
I have my waterproofs, I got comfy walking shoes and I have sorted the library app so I can listen to audiobooks and of course positive podcasts!

So what did I learn from last year, firstly we never put petrol in the car, win win for both our budget and the environment. Second, I felt much better about myself and walked faster after a month of everyday walking plus the amount of friends I caught up with (am very grateful for those who met up with me at dark nights or joined me while I was walking to work, those steps were the easiest). Third I found lots and lots of wonderful new routes and discovered a Edinburgh that has been my home for more than 10 years.

Finally I did find out that I am absolutely rubbish at fundraising!!! So I need your help! Please sponsor me here on my fundraising page and join me while I am out walking over at our Instagram @spektakularltd

A wonderful customer gave me lots of advice so yes of course we will have our bake sale again and I believe we shall have a raffia as well! This weekend I shall set it all up, it is time to advertise my daily walks (turns out my marketing skills is not as up to scratch as they should be), and it is time for me to start walking! So why on earth am I doing this??? Well of course I am doing this for all of you who suffers from cancer. We all have someone we care about and love that has sadly been affected and cancer is as we know truly evil and I am so grateful to all the research and the hard work that goes on in trying to help everyone who are affected. Walking 10000 steps is actually nothing compare to those wonderful heros who daily helps people with cancer.
