Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.


JAWS (Jake's Army of Walkers) are embarking on the Isle of Wight Challenge in May 2018 in memory of Jake Whiteside who lost his 10 month fight with Cancer in April 2017.  Jake was a wonderful young man who battled his condition with a smile on his face and a wonderfully positive attitude.  Jake was an immensely popular young man and his passing has been felt by so many people from many different walks of life.


The challenge involves a continuous walk around the Isle of Wight (106km, c65miles) which hopefully will be completed in around 20-24 hours!!  The 'Army' consists of family and friends, namely; Richard Whiteside, Belinda & Ian Willis, Nick Hasler, Josh Roberts, Mark Sainsbury, Darren Hockley, Ross Hockley, Jake Franklin, Sam Hockley, Mark Faulkener, David Bull, and Jo & Scott Meekings.


CLIC Sargent provided Jake's family with excellent support, particularly during his four month stay in hospital in London.  Raising money for this charity will allow them to provide support for many other families at their time of need.
