What would we do without lists? I have lists for all kinds of things and regularly update and amend them in order to prioritise what has to be done.

It is a lovely feeling when, at the end of each day, you can tick things off, but knowing more tasks have been added.

At this time of year, after a welcome break, at the top of my list sees our 11th Walk at Wicksteed Park on Sunday, March 24.

It is hard to believe we are on number 11, yet I feel enormously proud that we have received such a good following for every walk that has passed and that the walk has received the recognition of ‘Northamptonshire’s Walk of Walks’.

The list of “to dos” to make the walk happen is, indeed, long.

To organise such an event, with an expected entry of 3,000 plus, is a huge undertaking but we have a clear plan of what has to be done and we have great support from our sponsors, the Crazy Hats team, and the many, many volunteers who assist to make the day memorable and enjoyable for all.

Last year the date of the Walk coincided with Mother’s Day so we lost out a little, although we had 2,800 enter.

This year, we have checked the calendar. It is not Mother’s Day and the clocks do not change so I am optimistic of really reaching the magical 3,000, with the potential for more.

If your lives have been affected by breast cancer in any way please consider joining us this year.

If you have done it before, you will know what I mean when I say it is a truly wonderful and uplifting experience.

Go on, do something crazy and give yourself that feel-good factor, while doing your bit to enhance breast cancer services here in Northamptonshire.
