John Fearon from Newry has pledged to raise £3,700 to tackle a demanding trek in the Himalayas – in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

John will take on the experience of a lifetime, trekking through the Annapurna region in Nepal

The trek takes John on the experience of a lifetime, trekking through the Annapurna region in Nepal. He is looking for sponsorship for his challenge which will raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care which provides high quality nursing, totally free, to give people with terminal cancer and other illnesses the choice of dying at home, supported by their families. 57 year old John will be training hard before the January 2015 Trek in order to cope with the 10 day, eight hour treks and would like as many people as possible to support him, every step of the way. “This trek will be a real challenge for me with long days trekking steep slopes but I am looking forward to pushing myself to achieve this with a team of people committed to helping raise funds for the vital service provided by Marie Curie Cancer Care. “I witnessed the special care Marie Curie nurses provide when my mother passed away on St Patrick`s Day last year after a long illness. The nurses provided so much comfort and dignity to my mother in her final days and their support is vital to people with terminal illnesses.” The Event Co-ordinator added, “We welcome John to our team of adventurers. You still have time to join him on this amazing challenge. You are guaranteed to bring back memories that will last forever while helping to raise funds which will enable Marie Curie to continue its important work.” Anyone wishing to sponsor John, please contact 0783 6744354 or and help raise vital funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
