Celestine Walking Her Way Through Her EPT1000 Challenge

03 Jun 2021 | By The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust

Celestine joined our EPT1000 challenge at the beginning of this year and has been pounding the streets and her surrounding parks ever since. She has been so dedicated and already ticked off over 400 km. We are so proud of Celestine to have the courage to sign up to this 12 month challenge and are so happy that it has really helped her, particularly during lockdown, giving her a focus and providing her with invaluable support from the EPT1000 community. Celestine recently shared her experience in the EPT1000 Challenge Newsletter.

Why did you start your #EPT1000 challenge? I joined because I knew it was a really big challenge for me and I needed to work on my own confidence after my ectopic pregnancy in 2018. It was a way to give back to the charity that supported me and a nice way to pay tribute to Millie’s memory. How far have you gone so far? I have done 391 km so far! What has been the best or most interesting part of your challenge so far?  The challenge and the support from the charity has given me the confidence to go out walking more and Celebrity Spotting! So far I have met Shelley King (Yasmin from Coronation Street), Chris Gascoyne (Peter Barlow in Coronation Street), Roy Keane and Idris Elba to name just a few. Do you have a favourite place to walk?  I live in a big city so I have enjoyed exploring new and old places. Do you have any top tips for fellow challengers? Be motivated by the group, go walking with friends to help you get out and take lots of pictures for your own memories!
