Southport Grandma Hikes Across Alps For Cancer Research UK

1st August 2015

Southport grandma Mary Cobham has just completed a huge hike across Austrian Stubai Alps in memory of father Joe who sadly passed away 3 years ago of Prostate Cancer.

Joe was a keen walker and was still climbing mountains at age 79. He was chairman of Southport Ramblers for 15 years, so I urge all men to have a simple blood test for prostate.

Mary Cobham said:

“I did it, the ruck-sack route in the Austrian Stubai Alps. 80km, culminating in a climb 3,500 meters high on the Wilder Freiger summit, in 6 days. (pictured below)

“I had a more serious fear of heights than what I thought. I suffered from altitude sickness, dehydration and exhaustion at times. This was the hardest thing I have ever done.

“I have raised £872.00 so far, my just giving is still open if anyone would like to donate to cancer research UK”.
