Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the UK. One in seven women in the UK will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast Cancer Now believe that they can change the future of breast cancer and make sure that, by 2050, everyone diagnosed with the disease lives – and is supported to live well.

The Her Spirit community is inviting you to play your part by raising funds for Breast Cancer Now and taking part in Lakes to London 500km virtual Challenge.

This is an inclusive challenge where you can accumulate any distance between 1km and 500km from 21st August to the 2nd October 2022 , with any mix of swimming, cycling, running, walking or wheeling.

If you are up for the ultimate challenge then you can swim 5km, cycle 453km and run 42km over 6-weeks or in 3 days the choice is yours! Either way everyone can earn rewards and help raise vital funds for Breast Cancer Now. CLICK HERE for more information.
