West Yorkshire agency director joins celebrities to trek Transylvania for charity

The director of a West Yorkshire digital marketing agency has been chosen as one of just 60 people set to trek the ‘Transylvanian Alps’ with celebrities Tom Fletcher and Lisa Snowdon to raise funds for breast cancer charity, CoppaFeel.

Scott Brant, of Brighouse-based Vizulate Digital, will trek the five-day route through Romania’s Southern Carpathian mountain ranges between 22 – 26 July.

Mr Brant was chosen from more than 400 applicants across the UK and has begun fundraising towards a £2,200 target set by CoppaFeel as a requirement of the challenge.

Mr Brant said:

“I’m thrilled to be one of such a small group selected to take part and am looking forward to walking alongside Tom and Lisa and all the other fundraisers involved.

“While my life hasn’t been directly affected by breast cancer, over the last few years the most important females in my life have battled their fair share of health problems. I want to show them all how proud I am of them while raising funds for such a vital cause.”

He added:

“I think the height of the trek could be more of a challenge than the distance, as some parts, such as Varful Batrana on day four, will see us reaching more than 2,000feet above sea level.

“I also had a microdisectemy in 2017 following slipped discs in my lower back, so if I can complete five days in the Transylvanian Alps it will be a great personal achievement considering where I was two years ago.”

CoppaFeel charity exists to prevent late detection and misdiagnosis of breast cancer by raising awareness of its signs and symptoms and encouraging women to check their breasts regularly throughout their lifetime.
