Sara Walked the Great Wall

I had skin cancer and wanted to give something back to the Charity that had helped me during my operation and treatment.

I had a copy of the Discover Adventure Brochure but had put it away thinking I will never be able to raise that much. I then went to see a medium who told me "I was planning a holiday but didn't think I would have enough money to go”........ They told me to book it as I would have enough money. I came straight home and booked up the trek.

I had a great time on the trek and met some fantastic ladies who have since become best friends - we all still meet up and do different things including trekking the Toubkal Mountain in Morocco and I have just signed up to Trek the Himalayas with DA in Nov 2014!

Sara lives in Dunmow, Essex, she signed up to her challenge 12 months before departure. It was a memorable trip, Sara and her group had an unexpected extension to their trek due to the Icelandic ash cloud. They had 7 extra days in Beijing until they were allowed to fly home.
