Camille is fundrasing for Marie Curie Dorset
MARIE CURIE – JURRASIC COAST ULTRA CHALLENGE – May 2021
I am fundraising for the Marie Curie Charity in the Dorset area. Marie Curie Nurses have never been needed as much as in these past two years; but to be able to provide the support needed, fundraising has become more crucial than ever.
The purpose of this letter is to bring as much awareness of this wonderful Charity to you and, to raise money to continue funding the nurses and all that is involved in making a terminally ill person as comfortable as possible in their last days. I am Dorset born and bred, work for the NHS, live for the outdoors… me in a nutshell! So, when I found out about the Jurassic Coastal Path run, I knew this was a perfect way to challenge myself and help the community.
On 22nd May 2021 I will participate in the 100km Jurassic Coast Ultra Challenge, including a personal time challenge to complete the distance in less than 16 hours. Starting at Corfe Castle, I will make my way across country, following the coastline until the finish in Bridport. My training began in October 2020 and has seen incredible highs and painful lows; but all the pain and broken toes I have endured pales in the knowledge of the heartache, that so many have faced this year and last, given the global pandemic.
The charity is facing a potential loss of more than £3 million due to the cancelled public collections and this is where you can help. Your donation today would enable free nursing care for people with terminal illnesses within our community and Dorset area, as well as support for family and friends.
Your support and donation will give me the motivation to succeed and if you wish to know further about Marie Curie, I am happy to chat.
Thank you for reading my letter and I look forward to hearing from you.
With kind regards
