Tell us the story behind your photo:
A few years ago I had a bad netball injury, it put me out of action for ages and caused my knee to be weak. My Practice Duke Of Edinburgh hike was not long after the injury; April to November. I really wanted to not let my group down and do the hike so I spent every weekend up in the nearby mountains training with my father to ensure I was strong enough to complete the hike. On the second day my knee was struggling yet my friends and group members were so supportive and kept a slow steady pace to ensure I wasn’t left behind. I managed to complete the hike and the next day I was back on crutches resting my injury. However, this photo shows where my friends stopped and waited so I wouldn’t fall behind and the point where I realised I could rely on my teammates during my struggles.
