Cancer survivor and man of 90 sign up for Sussex cancer care walk
A breast cancer survivor and a man of 90 are planning to step out for a major charity fundraiser this summer.
Mandy Antell and Ted Brown are calling on people across Sussex to join them and hundreds of others for Breast Cancer Care’s annual Pink Ribbonwalk.
The event, which is supported by The Argus, is open to anyone aged 18 or over and takes place at Petworth House on June 1.
Entrants can choose a ten-mile or 20mile walk.
Mrs Antell, 48, from Haywards Heath, was diagnosed with breast cancer just over a year ago and has undergone a mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
She will be joining three of her sisters for the 10-mile courses.
Mrs Antell said: “This is our way of giving something back after all the care and support I have received.
“It is a great event and such an important cause and I would urge as many people as possible to sign up.”
Mr Brown, from Chichester, is taking part in the Pink Ribbonwalk for the fifth time this year.
He said: “I lost my daughter Susan to breast cancer in 2009 when she was only 55.
“It’s a terrible disease and I like to take part in the Pink Ribbonwalk in her memory.
“I have had a friend or two take part with me in the past but I usually walk on my own and it’s a great way to meet people who have been through something similar to you.
“It’s a nice occasion and I really like being there.”
It costs £30 to register to take part, but walkers are required to raise a minimum of £175 of sponsorship to help fund the charity’s practical and emotional support services.
People can bring family, friends and colleagues to for the walk, which will be followed by a village fete-style celebration, including a barbecue, massage and entertainment.
To register to take part, visit www.pinkribbonwalk.org.uk or call 0870 145 0101.
