In early August this year I received a text from my best mate telling me that for the last 5 years he has been suffering with OCD and depression. For me this was a shock and hard to take in as everything to me seemed fine with him but as it sunk in I felt that as a mate I should of seen the signs and helped him. However straight away I was texting back offering my complete and utter support for him and wanted to do everything I could to help him in this tough time.
So after a few visits to see him for a chat and obviously an Xbox night he mentioned about doing a sponsored walk for OCD, so straight away I jumped at the idea no matter what it was and how long the walk was.
We looked at a few walks that were good to do but settled on walking the Cornish coast from the Devon border in the south to the Devon border in the north. On another visit we worked out how long it will take and the distance we will have walk, so yeah, we have a nice 290 mile walk to do in two weeks working out to be around 20 miles a day!!
This is all for a great cause and for my best mate so it could be double the distance and I would still do it for him and everyone that suffers from OCD!!!
Also we are starting in a pub and finishing in a pub, got to have some perks for doing this haha!!!
