Dan and Sarah Mason are doing the Inca Trail in support of MDS UK Patients Support Group!
Dan & Sarah say in their Virgin Money Giving Fundraising Page:
"For our 40th birthday next year, Sarah Mason and I wanted to do something different!
So, in May we are stupidly putting backpacks and walking boots on and going to Peru for 9 nights. And as people will know, this is not "our normal thing". For 4 days and 3 nights of the trip we will be doing the Inca Trail Trek where we will be sleeping in a tent in the mountains and the rest of the trip will not be glam (although we stopped short of staying in hostels!). We have to trek up to 4,200 meters which could cause altitude sickness issues. This isn't a walk in the park!
We are self funding the whole trip but wanted to do some good so we will be raising money for charity. All charities are worthy but this year we lost an old friend who we met on our honeymoon (and recently reconnected with) to a very rare cancer, leaving behind 3 young children and his wife. So we thought in Gavin's memory we would raise funds for 2 charities that are personal to his wife Lisa's heart - MDS patient support and Winston's Wish.
Thanks for reading. Please click on the links below to see more information about the fantastic work the charities so that have helped Lisa and their children so much."
We hugely thank Dan & Sarah for their commitment and generosity! We would like to thank his family, friends and sponsors for their support.

Dan & Sarah raise crucial awareness of rare diseases and smaller charities amongst the general public. We need as much help as possible in order to carry on our work of supporting patients and campaigning with them.
