To mark our 75th anniversary, we’re challenging you to take on your own 75 mile challenge to help support members of the fire services community in need. The distance is set, but how you get there is completely up to you. This is a weekly series of posts, about your 75Miles, our 75Miler of the week.

Hannah Poole has started her #My75Miles journey with a series of mini challenges.

Here, Hannah explains why she’s taking on #My75Miles.

“I am a firefighter in Kent, a job I love and I am very proud of. Although I personally, have never needed to use the amazing services The Fire Fighters Charity offer, I know plenty of colleagues who have and everyone of them cannot recommend the service and support they have received highly enough.

“Knowing this is something which will be available to myself and my dependants for the duration of our lives is incredible and provides a great comfort to me. I believe strongly in this charity and wish to support it in any way I can, so I will do #My75Miles in celebration of their 75th year along with my lovely friends who are coming along for the ride.

“I am thinking up challenges as I go along. I will definitely be doing a #My75Mile bike ride at some point in the next few months which will be an all in one day event but I’d like to also do mini challenges. For example I regularly attend Zumba classes so will do 75 hours of Zumba. I surf so will do that too and will run 75 miles over a period of a month. I was thinking of running out 75 miles of fire hose but need to work that one out.

“Watch this space!”
