This week’s guest is the wonderful Louise Minchin.
Many of you will have woken up to Louise on your TV screens as she presented BBC Breakfast for 20 years and she’s also appeared on a number of other radio and television programmes. Louise is also known for her love of endurance sport, having completed a number of extreme triathlons, which is how she met Lucy Gossage, the co-founder of our 5k Your Way initiative. In this episode, Louise talks to Sophie, MOVE’s Admin and Fundraising Coordinator, and among many other things they discuss:
Louise’s TV career and the challenges she faced.
Her love of extreme triathlon.
Her journey to the London Marathon, which she will be running with her daughter this month in support of MOVE.
Louise is a huge supporter of MOVE Charity and has previously won money for us on The Celebrity Chase and Pointless All Stars. She will also be joining us for the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in September! Louise is such a warm, funny and honest person and we are delighted to have her as a guest on our podcast.
If you would like to support Louise for the London Marathon this year, you can donate to her fundraising page HERE. Louise’s new book - ‘Fearless: Adventures with Extraordinary Women’ is out on 25th May and can be preordered HERE.
What is The MOVE Against Cancer Podcast?
Welcome to the Move Against Cancer Podcast.
This podcast aspires to support and inspire people to move, exercise and live an active and fulfilling life despite a cancer diagnosis. We share the stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
We know that many people are scared to stay active during cancer treatment. We know that for some, cancer can take away the hope that comes from dreaming of a future. And we know many people diagnosed with cancer feel isolated and lonely.
We hope that by sharing the stories of others finding their own way through cancer, the Move Against Cancer podcast will provide hope, support and a sense of empowerment to anyone living with or beyond cancer.
Unfortunately, cancer will affect everyone either personally or through our loved ones and so whatever position you are in we hope you will learn and be inspired by our podcast. Thank you so much for listening.
