Story

 

On June 27th, 2012, I will be attempting to play ten rounds of golf to raise money for the Make A Wish Foundation.

At Mortonhall Golf Club, I will spend around 19 consecutive hours carrying my clubs, walking and completing each of the 180 holes. In total, I will be walking approximately 52 miles (distance of two marathons), with a total climb of 4,800 feet (just higher than Ben Nevis), whilst hitting approximately 750 shots.

Along with the challenge, I will be doing various volunteer work for the Foundation to learn more about the incredible work they do in making the wishes of children come true.

My wish is that people help the cause and donate whatever they can to help the Make A Wish Foundation.

On behalf of myself, the Make A Wish Foundation and the kids they help, thank you.

90 donations and I am a third of the way to £10,000. Fundraising dinner this weekend should put me a lot closer to the target, and then the final push towards June 27th! Thanks again to everyone that has donated and supported the challenge. #teameffort
