TV pre­sen­ter calls on walk­ers

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - COMMENT -

As a keen walker I’m de­lighted to be sup­port­ing Bowel Can­cer UK and Beat­ing Bowel Can­cer’s Walk To­gether.

My mum was di­ag­nosed with bowel can­cer and is thank­fully now re­cov­ered, so I know how im­por­tant it is to raise aware­ness.

Walk To­gether is a per­fect op­por­tu­nity to bring peo­ple to­gether from all “walks” of life, to re­mem­ber loved ones and help stop peo­ple dy­ing from bowel can­cer.

It’s a spon­sored walk for peo­ple of all ages and abil­i­ties. Bowel can­cer is the UK’s fourth most com­mon can­cer and the sec­ond big­gest can­cer killer.

Ev­ery year al­most 42,000 peo­ple are di­ag­nosed with bowel can­cer and more than 16,000 peo­ple die from the dis­ease.

Sign up to the walk in Lon­don on Septem­ber 15 or to re­ceive a fundrais­ing pack with ev­ery­thing you need to hold your own mem­o­rable walk, visit bow­el­canceruk.org.uk/ walk­to­gether
