Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Thousands of children are diagnosed each year and we want to stop the devastation caused when a little one is lost to a brain tumour...Vital funds are needed to enable cutting edge research to find new treatments that will be effective in our fight against this disease...

I am walking 780 km/500 miles across Northern Spain and with your help will raise £30,000 to fund new research...

The French Way or Camino Francés is the most challenging of all the Camino de Santiago routes, featuring in many documentaries, books and movies such as ‘The Way’ starring Martin Sheen...

This will take me 5 weeks from April 30th–June 7th and I will be starting in St Jean Pied de Port and finishing at Santiago de Compostela...

Being away from home and work for this length of time, carrying everything on my back, will certainly be tough... not to mention the wear and tear on my feet and legs as I walk through The Pyrenees and the Pecos Mountains... however, the thought of the little ones I see struggling through gruelling chemotherapy treatments and debilitating surgery... will spur me on in the darkest of times I'm sure, to complete my challenge...

My quest to change the outcomes for these children will not stop until we find the treatments that work.

Please support me with whatever you can... every donation will be a huge mental boost to me and help me to reach my £30,000 goal.

Thank You,

Andy
