We’re super excited to announce that we are the official sponsor of CoppaTrek! with Gi (Giovanna Fletcher) this year, sponsoring two 100km treks in order to raise awareness of breast cancer and raise vital funds for CoppaFeel!
CoppaFeel! are the first breast cancer charity in the UK to solely create awareness amongst young people, with the aim of instilling the knowledge and tools they need to get to know their bodies. CoppaFeel! aims to ensure that all breast cancers are diagnosed at the earliest stage possible by educating people on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, encouraging them to check regularly and instilling the confidence to seek medical referral if they detect anything unusual for them.
A charity with a fantastic community spirit, CoppaFeel! set out on a challenging ‘CoppaTrek!’ each year, all in the name of checking chests and raising an amazing amount of money as they do it. This year, for the very first time, CoppaFeel! will be organising TWO treks; facing the rugged terrain of the Pembrokeshire Coast in June, and the testing heat of The Sahara Desert in November.
Giovanna Fletcher, who is best known for her parenting content, Happy Mum, Happy Baby, as well as being crowned Queen of the I’m A Celebrity Castle, is leading the way along with her team of celebrity trek captains. Along with over one hundred other trekkers, Gi will take part in the five-day challenge bid to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds towards the charity’s life-saving mission.
“Regatta really are the breast friend our treks could have, advocating for the importance of getting outdoors for both our physical and mental health - even more so when we face life altering situations. With this in mind, it's no surprise that we are thrilled to have them on the CoppaTrek! journey to Pembrokeshire and the Sahara Desert.”
We are delighted to be Regatta kit to the CoppaFeel! trekkers and celebrity captains to make sure they’ve got all the right gear for the adventures ahead. We can’t wait to be cheering on the team as they complete the treks and see all that they accomplish - stay tuned on our social media to follow their journey.
Whether you are a seasoned pro, or a total novice, join us in being breast aware and get to know your normal. CoppaFeel! have all the information you need to get to know yourself, you can even get them to send you a text reminder so that you never forget to check! Take a look at their self-checkout here.
