Quote from Chanel – ‘I am very grateful for the support I had from friends and family in being able to achieve this challenge, and from everyone who has kindly donated. It was tough - these quotes sum up nicely the effort it took:
“The best view comes after the hardest climb” and “Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t!”.
I look forward to my next fundraiser!”
