Village resident Lisa McKenzie is best known for her baking and cakes. Today, she and her husband Stuart are raising funds for Parkinson’s UK by taking on the Jurassic Coast Challenge.
They will be walking 100km (66 miles) non-stop from Corfe Castle to Morrisons in Bridport. You can track their progress from the info page HERE. Lisa‘s bib number is 2404 and Stuart’s is 2405.
You can still donate to Parkinson’s UK through Lisa‘s Just Giving page, HERE.
We wish them both the very best of luck 🙂
And they did it! 😀 Lisa posted on social media afterwards…
Well … what an absolute rollercoaster of emotions that was!
After some horrific climbs I had mentally given up when we got to Lulworth at 42km. I was totally broken and just broke down and cried. With mum on standby, I mentally told myself that if I made it to half way in Weymouth then I could call it a day and still be bloody proud!
But thankfully we met (on another killer hill!) 4 absolute superstars who literally picked me up and made me believe again that I could get to the finish. To Claire, Joe, Nicky and Tim, wherever you are, I will be eternally grateful for your support and encouragement between Lulworth and Weymouth. Without you guys I never would have got any further!
To everyone we met along the way, who were so nice and told me I WOULD finish, even when I was 100% convinced I wouldn’t get there, thank you! Also to all you lovely lot who were tracking us and sending messages of encouragement, they made me cry but were so very appreciated!
Lastly the most thanks has to go to Stuart, I don’t think either of us would have got there without the other. We each had our low points, but got the other through. We made it!!
I don’t think the sense of achievement has quite sunk in yet … I’m sure once the pain subsides it will!
Thank you so much to everyone who has donated … you are all amazing and your donations definitely kept us going. I know that your money is already making such a difference to Parkinson’s UK.
