For my Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award, I am virtually running 293km, coast to coast along the Wainwright footpath. My aim is to raise 586 pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support, 2 pounds per kilometre.
Macmillan Cancer Support are a fantastic charity who took great care of my Grandad in his final months. My Grandad was so amazing, even when we woke him up at 7 in the morning for stories. He was so caring and spent so much time playing princess memory games, board games, card games and more. I feel like by spending my time helping the people who looked after my Grandad when he got sick, will be my way of showing my thanks to him because I can’t actually tell him that anymore.
I will be updating this site every week, my aim is to run 25km a week. I will be giving some background info on the places I visit as well. Then I will also make a scrapbook to give to Macmillan recounting my journey.
Here is the link to the Just Giving website where you can donate.
