We walked 100 miles in 100 days
I was feeling helpless as my niece battled anorexia and I couldn’t be physically close to my sister due to lockdown. I wanted to support them in some way and so I decided to raise money for Beat. I know just how vital this charity is for people suffering from an eating disorder and I felt like we could help in some small way.
So we decided to walk 100 miles in 100 days, a challenge that we could do as a family. My boys are 11 and 9 years old and have been so keen to get involved because they know that they are doing something to help their cousin. Phoebe is 13 and currently lives in a unit for adolescents with eating disorders. Anorexia has taken over her life. Her brother and sister miss her desperately and we all want her to get better so that she can go home to be with her family, where she belongs. We are hoping to raise as much money as possible with each step that we take during our challenge. We are also raising awareness about eating disorders and the essential work that Beat does, working 365 days a year to provide support.
