We’ve just returned from a weekend in Wales trekking the Gower Peninsula in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Five of us Twitterers, who for the most part had never met, joined forces and between us we managed to raise over £1700 for the charity thanks to Social Media (Facebook and Twitter).
Breakthrough not only organises walking events but they also do White-water Rafting, Skydiving, Biking and loads more depending on how intrepid you are. So get a group of friends together and get out there!
The walk was organised in conjunction with Walkwise an independent UK trekking company. The guides were knowledgable, friendly and weren’t adverse to a beer after a long day trekking. Again, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who supported us, my fellow #twitsfortits and the ladies on the walk who’ve been directly affected by Breast Cancer for allowing us to share the experience with them.
I’m normally not a Country and Western fan but chose ‘Fight Like a Girl’ by Bombshel as I thought it was fitting.
I’ll hold my head high
I’ll never let this define
The light in my eyes
Love myself, give it Hell
I’ll take on this world
If I stand and be strong
No, I’ll never give up
I will conquer with love
And I’ll fight like
Like a girl
