This year, 2011, marks the 20th anniversary of when Emma's mum Janice sadly lost her battle against breast cancer. Since she died, Emma and her family have been raising money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer - which back in 1991 was a newly established charity and she was the youngest fundraising member. Through various events including a sponsored swim, hockey marathon, disco, garden party, handmade card sales and a half marathon last year, Emma has raised a considerable amount of money. This year, to mark the anniversary, Emma set herself a '10 for 10 Challenge' - to complete 10 challenge events, including a 22mile trek, mini triathlon and the Great North Run, to reach the £10,000 fundraising mark. With 3 events left to do - Emma has achieved her goal, with over £10,500 raised to date!
