    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Throughout the years I have known of several fortunate people that have been given a second chance at life after substance misuse. Without the services throughout the country, who we rely on without knowledge to assist these times in people's lives, it would not be possible. For someone to regain Joy and Hope in the things most people take for granted is something that cannot be put into words and thanked enough so I am raising money to help in the fight that these people and services face and to give to a much needed department that does an outstanding job.

    (A bit about the times ahead) The walk will be starting in Tianamen square -

    Day 1 where we will progress up through and out of Beijing and onto the first section of the wall for walk 1 which will be at the Mutianyu and Jiankou sections approximately 45 miles north of Beijing. These have been standing since the Northern Qi Dynasty in the year 550AD -557AD with the Mutianyu section covering approximately 2.5km in length and the Jiankou section covering approximately 20km long and links in directly with the former.

    Day 3 will consist of walking the Badaling section of the Great Wall approximately 60km northwest of central Beijing, which was built in the Ming Dynasty, and covers approximately 3.74km in length. It was built around 1505AD and is one of the more widely known sections of the wall around the world.

    Day 5 will be covering the Juyonguan section is approximately 60km from Beijing central. The walk is in the region of 4.2km and has been standing since 770BC! This will be the more challenging route due to the terrain of the wall and will be the final section for this event.

    Thankyou for taking the time to read this and i hope you have an understanding of the quest ahead and the cause it is for. Please dig deep for this one as we'll be trekking across 4 sections of the Great Wall of china in aid of drug and alcohol misuse across dorset.
