Story

The walk was completed by Tamsin Sat 23rd August, met by her two companions (Abby and Graeham) who, upon recovery from foot and ankle injury, went on to complete a few days later.  Read it in the news: www.gazettelive.co.uk/news/local-teesside-news/stockton-billingham-news/2008/09/04/charity-walker-finally-makes-it-84229-21672745/
News update (08/08/08):

After using her noggin to break a nasty fall on the 2nd day of the Wainwright walk back in May 2008

-It even made the news!!-

Tamsin, never one to give up easily, has given up a fortnight of her summer vacation to complete the coast-to-coast in a second attempt (We've packed a crash helmet just in case! Only kidding Tam.) accompanied by two new budding walkers, myself (Abigail) and Graeme (Abigail's brother). Rebecca (Abigail's sister) is hoping to join during the second week for the final push.

A donation from you will make three weary walkers incredibly happy :-) Thanks in anticipation!

"We (Clare and Tamsin) have decided the best way to get in shape after months studying for our exams is to walk from Coast to Coast!
Devised by the late Alfred Wainwright in 1973, our route runs 190 miles and links the Irish Sea and the North Sea via the hills, moors and valleys of northern England. It crosses three National Parks: the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. It is classed as CHALLENGING by the Ramblers association. We leave from St. Bees Head , and hope to finish at Robin Hoods Bay after ten days (that's 19 miles a day)! You can find out more about the route at http://www.ramblers.org.uk/INFO/paths/coasttocoast.html
 
As second Year Medical students at Durham we want to use this opportunity to raising funds for The Anthony Nolan Trust via Marrow, its student outreach project. The Anthony Nolan Trust takes back lives from leukaemia by providing lifesaving donors for patients in need of a bone marrow transplant. Marrow aims to provide every student with the opportunity to join the Anthony Nolan Trust's bone marrow register. 
 
It costs the Charity £125 to recruit each potential donor to the register so any sponsorship you can give us would be fantastic. To join the Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Register you need to be aged between 18 and 40, and you can remain available to donate until your 60th birthday (see www.jointheregister.org for more details).
 
Thank you for your interest, support and wish us luck with the hike!
