Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

For 2016 I've decided to walk the 54km South Coast Challenge on August 27th for The British Heart Foundation. The BHF are the nation's heart charity and the largest independent funder of cardiovascular research. Coronary heart disease is the UK's single biggest killer but they are leading the fight against it. Pioneering research has helped to transform the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions.

Their work has been central to the discoveries of vital treatments that are helping to change the face of the UK's fight against heart disease. Their vision is a world where people don't die prematurely from heart disease.They'll continue the fight through pioneering heart research, vital prevention and survival activity and ensuring quality care and support for everyone living with heart disease.

I am fundraising this year in loving memory of my Grandad Antonio Valentino who passed away on August 27th 2015. This event is 1 year to the day.

Our new 2016 challenge takes on some of England's finest scenery. Eastbourne start, up the infamous Beachy Head, over unspoilt chalk cliffs through the fantastic Seven Sisters Country Park and along the South Downs Way ending at Brighton. Most of the 2,000 challengers taking part will be walking at their own pace, quite a few will jog parts, and some will run the full 100km distance. We are only challenging ourselves to the half challenge which is 54km (approx 33.5 miles).

I hope you will support myself and this charity in donating anything you possibly can.
