We pioneer life-saving cancer research to help us beat cancer


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. I am here trying to raise a bit of cash for Cancer Research UK. I, like most of you, have lost loved ones to Cancer. Let's try and beat it. 

Between April and October 2015 I will be walking the 2660 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail. Starting at the Mexico border, walking through the deserts, mountains and forests of California, Oregon and Washington and finishing up at the border of Canada. 

Originally I wasn't going to ask people to sponsor me - having raised over £8k for my last challenge I didn't feel like I could keep asking people for money - but I have had a few people already asking how they can sponsor me (no one can imagine I would be doing this just for fun!) so here is my page. 

It will be open to receive donations all year, so you can sponsor me now, wait for pay day, donate at 500 miles when I'm ready to quit, or at 1000 miles and again when I've reached 2000 miles, when I hug the Canadian monument........the choice is yours.

However - should I get eaten by a bear I do expect this page to go on and raise millions!
