Story

Happy New Year and delighted to announce the 2022 Challenge started virtually on January 1st at West Quoddy Head Lighthouse and I'm on my way to Portland 246 miles to the West. Before anyone decides they are going pop along and cheer me in person please remember that this is a virtual challenge as we can't physically be in the US. However, it doesn't mean the mileage won't be real. I will also be taking part in a number of Spinathons, 10k's 10 Milers, Half and Full Marathons.

January 9 - 6 hour Spinathon at The Gym Watford, which is open to members or non-members. Join me for an hour or two or try the full 6 hours

February 6 - Chelmsford 10k

February 13 - Cancer Research Winter Run

April 3 London Landmarks half Marathon (my first) and running for a very important team MS

April 17 - Battersea Park 10k

June 5 - Regents Park 10k (2nd time can I beat this years’ time 74 minutes)

July 16 - QE Stadium 10K (2nd time again can I beat last years’ time 75 minutes)

I'm pleased to announce during 2021 we have raised £10,000 so a little bit closer to the £365,000.00 are looking to raise. We have decided to split the money into two. The first half will be to support Talking Cafes which do a brilliant job, but seriously underfunded. We intend to support Cafes that support one of the following causes Mental Health/PTSD, Bereavement, LGBT+, Menopause & Drug rehabilitation.

The second half will be used to open up "Oasis of calm" in city centres. These will be available to anyone who is seeing "red" feeling "blue" or even "black". There you will find a sensory room where you will be able to spend as much time as you need for your emotions to return to normal. Only thing is you will not be allowed to use any electronic communication so that means no phone, laptop or tablet for the duration of your stay at the "Oasis"

Therefore I hope you will feel generous and want to continue to support my efforts & so how about these interesting ideas such as the number of steps, feet, yards or miles you want me to do. If this appeals to you then it’s 50p per step or £1.00 for each foot or £5.00 per yard, or £10.00 a mile. Or you can just make a donation that you feel comfortable with for the entire 3,488 miles. All money raised will be used to support the projects we have chosen

However, I would also like to encourage everyone to take part regardless of age or ability as any movement outside your day to day movement is a step in the right direction. It can be slowly built up from 2021 seconds to 2021 minutes. As many now understand the Move For Wellness is not limited to the UK you can join in anywhere. So why not walk or skip or jog around your neighbourhood, town, city or county.

    So yesterday I did a 75 minute Spin session which meant I arrived at Plymouth Ho. Now my so called friend Francis suggested I bring my bowls with me for a game against Philip and a few of his mates, I think I heard the time wrong 15.88? Anyway time for a rest as I've now done 360 miles and be heading off to The Lost Gardens of Heligan. #maninatutu #moveforwellness21

    Delighted that the man in the Tutu has now reached another milestone and that's 225 miles and now visited Stonehenge, Portsmouth and now Bournemouth Pier and on the way to Bridport in Dorset not Connecticut. Can I please ask if you can, please donate as every penny, dime, cent, euro, rupee, dong, rubble and any other currency will be used to help people suffering from the effects of trauma #maninatutu #moveforwellness

    Just thought all would appreciate an update as to where my virtual tour of the UK has taken me. On Sunday I reached my first milestone as I had covered the first 91 miles which took me to the mystical site that is Stonehenge. I'm now on my way to the next stop on the 2021 mile walk, skip, jog & spin around the UK Portsmouth
