Team Description

You never know your inner strength until its put to the test.

I have always enjoyed sunny days and summer holidays but after being diagnosed in 2015 with Malignant Melanoma skin cancer my days in the sun are quite different, in fact I don't know if I will ever be quite the same person I was.

I've had great support from friends, family and my dermatology team and nearly a year on from my devastating news I want to celebrate one year clear and raise funds for skin cancer research.

Skin cancer is a serious disease that can affect anyone, treatments are limited once its spread beyond its original site. My melanoma was 1.7mm so hoping with the wider excision all was taken away, but I will never go into my 12 weekly checkups 100% confident as I never want to put myself in that vulnerable position again. I believe I've been extremely lucky and my tiny pink spot was caught in the early stages, but please, if you have a spot you are not sure of its rather a cliche but -

'If in doubt, check it out'

I know I will never under estimate what people have done for me so thank you to all those who went that extra mile to keep me positive.

Love Julie xx

So proud of these two. Will Biggs & James Needham completed the 15km Rough Runner over 19 obstacles, soaked & muddy but in great style. Thank you so much for helping to raise the awareness of skin cancers & all your donations to The British Skin Foundation, you were brilliant xx

Endurance

We've completed our 50km TrekFest The Peaks in the most utterly atrocious conditions taking 14 hours 24 minutes.

We knew this challenge would be demanding and is known as the ultimate endurance challenge that ‘would push you to your limits’, well it certainly lived up to its quote and beyond!

Nothing could prepare us for the torrential rain, strong cold winds, slippery mud and the last 6 miles (including climbing Mam Tor) in pitch darkness and driving rain with only our head torches to guide us.

MASSIVE respect to the team, we had to dig so deep in horrendous conditions, our bodies ached all over, we were frozen, but never gave up and crossed the finish line together around midnight!

TrekFest 50km The Peaks - Team Mela No More

We are a team of seven, Jill, Eleanor, Lisa, Gary, Dave, John & myself setting ourselves the huge goal of walking 50km in one day raising funds and awareness of skin cancer.

Its only four months away and the practice begins now preparing us for those 31.06 miles.
Thank you so much to members of the team for your massive support signing up for this challenge
