Local Discovery Channel competition finalist needs your help!

M5Local RAF resident Dianne Owens (of Linton Meadows) needs your help to help fulfill an adventurous pledge in association with the Discovery Channel. Dianne is currently one of only 15 contestants to make it through to the ‘Make Your World Bigger 2015’ prize draw.

Here is Dianne’s Make Your World Bigger pledge entry:

I have Microvascular Heart Disease as well as Sjogren’s Syndrome & Fibromyalgia – both chronic debilitating conditions that cause pain and fatigue every day. As a distraction I set myself goals and recently completed the High Peaks Challenge, raising money for the British Heart Foundation.

Seeing the amazing adventures and beautiful places on Discovery Channel every day, coupled with my love for hiking and being outdoors, gave me the inspiration to take the #MYWBpledge in the hope it would come true.

My ultimate dream is to hike up the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain, drawing on my strength and determination to get there. If I can climb a mountain I can do anything.


There are only a few days left to Vote Dianne to win this contest. If you have a spare moment to cast your vote then please visit the following link:
