Theo and Verity Take on The 100K Cotswolds Way

Posted by Suzanne Brennan on 25 June 2024

Congratulations to Theo and Verity for completing the 100K Cotswolds Way challenge in aid of Future Dreams. The 100 km route loops through the heart of the stunning Cotswolds, through Rolling hills, villages, the Cotswold Way, footpaths & trails, with some fabulous views.

“The 100k Cotswolds Way is a challenge Verity and I was all paid up to do last year in June. In April 2023, I was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer. I had surgery, chemo and radiotherapy and chose to defer our place to this year. After all the treatment, my fitness was not the same as pre cancer and struggled however nothing prepared either of us for how punishing the beautiful hills of Cotswolds are! Even the flat terrain was marred with solid tractor markings on the ground! The hills were so brutal that I decided that I could no longer run and only manage to walk. With full sun beating down on us, we were walking in what felt like a hundred fields and had to climb over so many stiles that our broken bodies felt like we were toddlers attempting to climb for the first time. We were mentally and physically exhausted! However, during the whole two days, we received messages from our JustGiving page showing that people had donated and words of encouragement which really uplifted us!”

“We were honoured to be able to raise money for Future Dreams who helped myself and my childhood friend, Fatima going through breast cancer last year and who I unfortunately lost this year. She introduced me to Future Dreams and left me with lovely memories of us there.”

Sylvie and Danielle began Future Dreams with just £100 in 2008. They believed nobody should face breast cancer alone.  Their legacy lives on in Future Dreams House.  We couldn’t continue to fund support services for those touched by breast cancer, raise awareness of breast cancer and promote early diagnosis and advance research into secondary breast cancer without your help.
