A mother-of-two is ‘going mad’ and taking on four challenges with the aim of raising £40,000 during her 40th year.
Turning 40 has given Gayle Wharton, who lives near Corby Glen, the motivation to challenge herself to a series of challenges. Gayle’s mother Valerie was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 40 and lost her battle with the disease when Gayle was just 15-years-old, which has given Gayle added impetus to raise as much money for charity as possible.
Mad Forty at 40 is the name of Gayle’s campaign, which aims to raise £40,000. During the year, she will complete a tandem skydive, run a half marathon, cycling 170 miles coast to coast and a sponsored headshave.
