Story

In July this year I will be hiking the Camino de Santiago in Spain. I am hiking from the 26th of July to the 21st of August. Unfortunately limited by the very short holidays of clinical year medical students I won’t be able to do the full 750km hike… However in the 27 days I have I’m aiming for around 540-700km depending on how my legs hold up. I may be slightly foolish as I’m not an experienced hiker and I will have to manage my low protein diet, from the condition I have: phenylketonuria (PKU), in a country not friendly to vegetarians. Indeed, as anyone who has been to Spain knows, it’s hard to be a vegetarian let alone a vegetarian who can’t eat cheese!

As I’m doing such a long hike I thought it would be a good excuse to raise money for two charities. The first is Keele Nightline, the university listening service, which benefits numerous students in Keele and is a vital service to those who need it. The second is National PKU News, an international charity that provides essential news and information, as well as scholarships to individuals with PKU. I am a beneficiary of the Guthrie-Koch scholarship they award, and feel it’s my duty to give something back. I am hoping to raise a pound per kilometer hiked. So please donate as much as you desire, even a penny would mean a great deal!

ALL DONATIONS GO TO KEELE NIGHTLINE & NATIONAL PKU NEWS (minus 7.7% justgiving + paypal process fee)

    After debating for some time I've decided to stop the hike. All due to a hip injury that originated in training and has been worsening progressively since. Disappointing to say the least but I have had a great time in Spain regardless of the circumstances, and will be back next year to give it another go! Despite managing a mere 20km of the target, I find solace in far exceeding would I could hope for in terms of my initial target of a pound per kilometer hiked! Thanks for your support for these charities, they will benefit so much!

    Due to injury in the weeks before I set off, my start has been somewhat delayed and a lot slower than expected! Despite this the first day yesterday was wonderful, with the beautiful coastal woodland scenery of Asturias spurring me on! As I don't want to completely knacker my hips at the grand old age of 22, I'll be taking it slowly (and maybe taking a bus...) to Santiago! I'll keep posting any updates and pictures as I go. Thanks all for your support so far!

    If I know Connor, that guy can walk. I walk every day and don't make a penny of difference for nothing or nobody. Connor makes his walks worth a damn. He's been walking since childhood.
