Event Details

This is Mandy. She is 47, she has Downs Syndrome, and she is a legend.

Mandy came home to live with her family for the duration of the pandemic. And she decided - all by herself - to change a few things. She started walking, a little at a time at first, and then more and more, measuring her progress on her trusty fitbit.

And she decided to lose weight. In thirty weeks she has lost 47 pounds, by walking thousands of steps a day and by following the Slimming World plan. It's an incredible achievement.

Mandy is John Cena's biggest fan - that's him on her teeshirt - and we think he'd be very proud of her....

Up to last Tuesday Mandy has walked 678,822 of her Million Steps for Lakers. But she's under her physio's orders to cut down her walking for a little while because she has a slightly inflamed hip. She probably doesn't look too frustrated in this picture, but believe me she is, and she's absolutely determined to get back out there as soon as possible. She started on October 7th, and she will definitely get there in the end, hail rain or snow!
