Fundraiser of the Month: Danielle walks 100 miles

We couldn’t be doing what we’re doing, investing in research and supporting families, without our amazing fundraisers, large and small.

For May 2022 we’re awarding Fundraiser of the Month to Danielle, who walked 100 miles in March to fundraise for Children with Cancer UK.

Danielle’s niece, Flossy (pictured), was recently diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia at just 3 years old. Danielle told us that the diagnosis came as a shock, and that she didn’t quite know what to do to support Flossy and her mum Sarah.

When Danielle found out about the life-saving research we fund here at Children with Cancer UK, she knew she wanted to do something to help raise funds for this. She said:

After learning about the research you fund, I immediately knew I wanted to help raise money for this important cause. I decided to walk 100 miles in the month of March to raise funds.

Not only did Danielle walk her 100 miles, but she also absolutely smashed her initial £500 fundraising target, and to date she has raised an amazing £7,665. She says:

I was very proud to say I had achieved my goal. With Flossy in mind, I knew I wouldn’t fail. Flossy is facing every step of her journey with determination and a smile on her face. Flossy was my absolute inspiration to achieve my goal.

We’re so grateful for Danielle’s support – we couldn’t be investing in life-saving childhood cancer research if it wasn’t for fundraisers like Danielle, so it’s an absolute pleasure to name her our Fundraiser of the Month. A massive thank you from everyone here at Children with Cancer UK.
