As people all over the country begin to plan their own Walk In Her Name, what better time to meet our Walk In Her Name Ambassadors. Or WINHAs (winnas) as I like to call them!
Rob is a Walk In Her Name veteran and this will be the fourth year he'll be organising a walk! With a plan to recruit walkers from his community with a stall at his local Tesco, this year is set to be the biggest yet. Rob and the boys are full of little tips to help you fundraise — like the 'guess the number of steps' competition they ran last year, which was a big hit!
"I work full time for Essex Police and I’m a single parent to my two amazing sons Oliver (14) and Toby (13). The Walk In Her Name event is a special time each year for us, where family and friends come together for a period of reflection, tribute and remembrance of my beautiful wife Aleasha. It is especially significant to us as it falls around Aleasha’s birthday, which is at the end of March, and Mother’s Day."
Kelsey Vermeulen Roberts
This may be the first year Kelsey is taking part in Walk In Her Name but she certainly isn’t a stranger to fundraising. After a string of very successful bake sales (and some seriously impressive cakes) she is keen to make her walk as great a hit! With an ambitious walk up Mount Snowdon planned, she is sure to inspire you to make your walk the best it can be.
"I was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer at 19 years old. Raising money for this charity is the best thing I've ever done and you can’t beat the feeling that you get when you know that you are helping fund vital research into ovarian cancer.
I hope I raise loads of money and have fun on the walk with my friends & family — but most importantly I hope to raise awareness of this terrible disease. Dust off your trainers everyone because we’re going for a walk!"
