Story

*** Update ***

We have now finished the walk, it was absolutely amazing, yet also hell on earth. Thankyou for your donations, we're still accepting more if anybody else wishes to donate.

***    ***

In the year 2000, when my granny was seventy, she walked Wainwright's one hundred and ninety two mile walk across the country, by herself. She always loved walking, and kept it up throughout her old age, as well as playing tennis in her eighties.

As she grew older she developed dementia, which eventually dulled her once sharp mind. She died when she was eighty six, heavily suffering from Alzheimer's at this point. 

I would like to raise money in her memory as she means a lot to me, and I hope that one day nobody will have to suffer through dementia. We will all miss her, along with the letters and drawings she used to send to us about her walking holidays.

On the 15th July, four of us, all eighteen years old, are starting the same journey my granny took once when she was fifty four, and again when she was seventy. We shall be camping most nights, cooking meals as we go. The walk starts from the beach at St Bees in the Lake District, walking 4 miles along the beach before cutting into the mainland. It passes through valleys and over mountains, and then through the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors, to finish at Robin Hood's Bay, near Whitby. The total distance is 192 miles, and we are hoping to complete it in 12 days or less.

Please donate to help sufferers of Alzheimer's, which can affect anybody, especially throughout old age.
