I am trekking the Great Wall of China as part of The Fabulous Challenges for CoppaFeel!
You may have seen the challenges in The Sun’s Fabulous Magazine last month, that gave readers the opportunity to apply to take part in trekking Machu Picchu with Ferne & Lydia from TOWIE, or The Great Wall of China with 3 of the Union J boys. Both Challenges are in aid of the fantastic charity CoppaFeel! Like everyone else who applied, I never dreamed of actually being chosen, but low and behold I got that call to say I have.
Hopefully you have all heard of CoppaFeel! and you may have even seen some of their Campaigns, the Boobettes and even their giant boobs walking around festivals and events. CoppaFeel! are a unique and wonderful charity who are raising awareness and educating every young person – gals and guys (yes guys too), to get to know our boobs, and all importantly check them. Early detection and diagnosis is key. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case for Kris, who after being sent away by her GP purely because of her age, she was later diagnosed with stage 4 cancer at the age of 23. Kris has turned such a negative into a massive positive, and is a true inspiration to us all; and I for one am extremely passionate about her and the CoppaFeel! mission, to educate and get us all checking our breasts! As CoppaFeel! rightly states ‘Knowing your boobs could save your life’!
So at the weekend I went up to London for the induction and to meet the other trekkers. We met at the News UK building, which is one impressive building that has the most AMAZING views. It was a great induction and lovely to meet people from all walks of life who I will be walking the monster wall with. Lydia and Ferne from TOWIE dropped by to talk about their participation in the Machu Picchu challenge. There was even a photoshoot! Keep your peepers open because it will be in the The Sun’s Fabulous Magazine soon!
It is by far my biggest challenge, but one that I am so grateful to be a part of, as well as being part of raising funds and awareness for CoppaFeel! I will of course be blogging along the way, from now until I complete it in October (eeeek not long), so please stay tuned and any tips would be most appreciated!
I’d be beyond grateful if you could donate by sponsoring me here https://greatwallcoppafeel.everydayhero.com/uk/lauren, you really are helping a fantastic Charity! Please do spread the message, get to know your breasts, and visit the CoppaFeel! website here too!
Thank you each and every one of you!
Until next time…. x
