Raf's Back on My Feet - support him on his 350km trek (March)
Raf approached us a while ago with his latest plan to raise awareness of Ovarian Cancer and we were really impressed and happy to help. Raf has been doing various challenges in the past year or two and this is by far his most ambitious.
Raf is planning to complete the 350km Cape Wrath Trail in Scotland in a few months solo. He needs your support to do it...
We get approached for sponsorship on a regular basis and sadly we can't always say yes. In Raf's case, his professionalism, determination and commitment to the cause meant we really wanted to help him out. Put simply, Raf is a good guy and he's raising money for a great cause. We've helped by supply the clothing and equipment for his challenge. More details are below:
I will be taking on a gruelling 350km solo trek across the Scottish highlands this April in a bid to raise awareness of ovarian cancer.
I'm encouraging people from all over the UK to post a photo message on my website, ‘Back on my Feet’ (www.backonmyfeet.co.uk) for the women they love in the hope that they will be made aware of the symptoms of the disease. For each message posted, I will walk a kilometer of the Trail. The Cape Wrath Trail has been described as the hardest long distance
backpacking route in the UK, and I will be doing it solo.

BOMF Castleberg Outdoors 350 Expedition was started in memory of my mum, Irena who died from the ovarian cancer in 2011. I am keen to highlight that although women live with, and far too frequently die from, ovarian cancer, men are affected by the disease too when wives, daughters, sisters and mothers are diagnosed.
The Cape Wrath Trail in Scotland is a non-way-marked route which covers 350km from Fort William to the Cape Wrath lighthouse on the North West tip of the Scottish mainland, is considered to be the most challenging long distance walk in the UK.
