College worker spurred-on by uncle’s death hikes more than 870 miles for cancer research

AN INSPIRING college worker spurred-on by the death of her uncle hiked more than 870 miles over 295 walks for charity.

Kate Muddiman, a Work-based Learning Manager at Coleg Cambria, has completed the Wales Coastal Path, raising up to £1500 for Cancer Research UK.

Kate, from Chester, took on the challenge to mark her 50th birthday and support the organisation, which is dedicated to saving lives through research, influence, and information.

“Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me,” she said.

“It took almost 300 walks and several pairs of trainers, but I’ve done it – to complete 870 miles just feels unreal!”

Kate added: “It was an amazing journey, made even more emotional as like many people my life has been touched by cancer in past years.

“My uncle sadly passed away from the condition and I have other family and friends who have fought this cruel disease.

“My uncle was always determined to help others and that really struck a chord with me. In fact, before he died, he was planning a fundraising event for Cancer Research UK on his birthday, which shows what a remarkable man he was.

“I’m so pleased to have done it and again thank all of those people who gave so generously and others who kept me company along the way.”
