Abbey Peebles is to take on the Thames Path Challenge for CLIC Sargent after the charity supported her son Fraser, 17, who is currently undergoing treatment for leukaemia.
In September 2017, team Fraser's Fabulous Foot Soldiers will be taking on the epic Thames Path Challenge to raise money for CLIC Sargent.
Abbey said: "CLIC Sargent chose to support my family when we were lost and broken and didn't know where to turn. Having a child diagnosed with cancer is terrifying beyond belief, and the last thing you want to do is leave their side, like ever!
"Because of CLIC Sargent we have been able to stay at their Home from Home accommodation with the most supportive of staff, supported us with a grant, provided us with a wonderful social worker and youth support worker to help our son find his feet again now that his intensive treatment has finished.
"When I saw that we could support CLIC Sargent by walking the Thames Path Challenge I was delighted, it had our name written all over it, we're not athletes but we are determined."
