Tristan and I have embarked on a crazy challenge to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
We will be walking the entire length of the London Underground map (overground), one line at a time and calling at all the stops.
To give you an idea of the sheer stupidity of the task at hand, that involves 11 tube lines, 270 stops, 380 miles of walking and 800,000 steps!
I've personally been affected by cancer and have people close to me who have also fought the disease. We all know someone who has been touched by it. Macmillan Cancer Support offers all types of support: Trained Macmillan nurses, financial support in the form of grants and benefits advice, a helpline, website, leaflets and much more so that those with cancer feel supported.
We can update you on our progress as we're recording our routes with GPS.
