This summer the members of the HSP Support Group are taking on the HSP 1000 Mile Challenge.

This virtual challenge to travel 1000 miles, the equivalent of Lands End to John O'Groats, will take place over 10 weeks, from 10 July to the 18 September 2021.


UPDATE - 15 August 2021:- at the 5 week point the members have made the most amazing achievement they already reached John OGroats! So, together, they have decided to keep going and do the return journey, back to Lands End!! Please donate and support this amazing group of people as they turn the 1000 mile challenge into the 2000 Challenge!! Please keep donating, maybe we can get to £10,000 !!!


Inspired by Captain Sir Tom Moore - this inclusive challenge enables active participation regardless of para-ability. The HSP 1000 Mile Challenge aims to raise awareness of HSP and raise funds to research this little known rare disease.
