Story

Well all is going well and my target is getting nearer, three weeks today I will be in France and ready to start my adventure. The support I am getting is truly amazing!! Thank you all so much.

I've been shopping today for some of my equipment that I need. A 50 litre rucksack, new Goretex jacket, sleeping bag and mat, plus a solar panel for charging the phone so you can all track me!!

So great to see so many generous people supporting my challenge. Thank you so much, not even a week in and already have 10% of my target!!!

Just an update / correction, the Mellor march will be on the 5th May 2013 and not the 8th as mentioned by Mr Whitham!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am walking an ancient pilgrimage route (The Way of St James) which runs across Northern Spain. The walk starts at St Jean de Pied de Port (France) and I will be finishing a month later in Santiago de Compostela, covering a total of 500 miles, which I will be undertaking un-aided and on my own.

I am walking in memory of a very close friend, who I lost last year and will be raising funds for local cancer charities.

Please help and support this truely great cause and follow my story via Mellor March's and my Facebook page David Myers.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. 

Thank you again.

David.
