Paula walks the walk

A NAILSEA woman is in training to take on a mammoth challenge to a raise money for a breast cancer charity.

Paula Lee will walk almost four marathons over four days during the Walk the Walk power walking event, being held in Nijmegen, Holland, from July 18-21.

The 52-year-old of Causeway View is currently preparing herself for the 103-mile feat with a 14-week training programme.

Walk the Walk is a charity aimed at raising awareness of breast cancer and also raising money toward research by holding numerous power-walking events around the world, including the well-known Moon Walk in London that sees women walking in decorated bras.

Paula, a mother-of-two originally from Holland, decided to raise money for Walk for Walk after attending breast screening appointments herself.

She took part in the Bristol Moon Walk last year and has always wanted to complete the challenge in Holland.
