  • Event: Turks Head 10K, 10 Jun 2018


We support all with lower limb conditions to make a real difference

Charity Registration No. 1094343


In a visit to the Peak District a year ago I decided to challenge myself to face some of my physical and mental obstacles.  As the first step in a year of walking I walked the Turks Head 10K in Twickenham in June 2018 (and also repeated this in June 2019).  When I talked about entering the race, a few friends asked me if they could 'sponsor' me.  So I've chosen to support Steps - who provide information and support for people who've been affected by childhood lower leg conditions, like me.

It's plain to see that I walk a bit differently.  I was born with severe Developmental Dysplasia of the Hips (DDH). In plain English this means that my hip joints didn’t form properly before I was born.  Walking is not something I do with ease or speed.  Yet I'm slowly learning that we often create our own limitations, and I wanted to challenge mine.

I've launched a blog called to share my challenges as I walk 100 miles of the South Downs Way.  You can also follow this blog on Facebook and Twitter: @WalkingJill

I want to raise £1532, which would be £1 for every 250 steps of the South Downs Way.

Thanks to everyone who's supported me so far on this journey.
