Take on a challenge with friends, family or colleagues
It’s been a busy few weeks for the team working on the Ben Nevis Challenge with nearly 50 people signed up already support packs sent and coaches booked.
We’ve also been looking over photos from the past few years which has made us look forward even more to the 2013 event.
We’ve noticed that the Ben Nevis Challenge is becoming more and more popular for groups of friends family and colleagues so we got in touch with some of them to find out why.
Zoe is taking part with her friends:
'We have stuck to our New Year's resolution and have signed up to Breast Cancer Care Ben Nevis Challenge 2013. We cannot wait for the climb and of course to reach the summit! We have planned some training sessions in and have had some laughs together preparing for this already. 55000 people each year will hear the awful words "It's breast cancer". We have experienced first hand the support Breast Cancer Care can provide to anyone affected by breast cancer and are proud to be raising funds to support their fantastic work.'
The Ben Nevis Challenge is full of glorious views team bonding laughs achievements and fantastic memories to reminisce about for years to come so it’s the ideal chance to get a group together to achieve big things – conquering the highest mountain in Britain and raising money for Breast Cancer Care.
In case all this isn't temptation enough we're offering a fantastic discount of £25 off per person for groups of four or more.
If you'd rather sign up as an individual don’t worry. There'll be plenty of other people doing the same and you won’t be alone. The camaraderie is fantastic with lots of chance to make new friends.
After seeing Amanda share her difficult experience following breast cancer, Charlotte felt the urge to show her support. She tells us why she signed up to run a half marathon, and how meaningful it felt to fundraise for us.
Around 10,000 people have donated tissue samples to the Breast Cancer Now Tissue Bank. One of those people is Sue Stannard, 69, from Caythorpe. Now, she reflects on her experience with breast cancer and donating to the Tissue Bank.
