We are doing this walk for Teenage Cancer Trust , a charity we have been involved with for many years . Most of you will know all about the charity , and have so kindly supported us in many ways .
TCT now reaches 80% of the the teenagers in the UK with cancer , this is absolutely incredible , but still a long way to go , it's a constant task to keep up , to ensure eventually every young person can have the specialist care and individual treatment to give them the best chance to beat this horrible disease , in the environment possible .
Two hundred miles walking , not too difficult . Sounds quite simple , but with the injuries I have incurred , really , a mammoth task .
Why Ireland , first I love Ireland , and it brings with it it's own additional challenges . We are doing this walk from the 30th of September to the 10th of October , when Pascale will return to England and I will be joined by some friends and supporters of TCT for the completion of the walk . Why September , traditionally the wettest month in Ireland , first it will take two month's to build up to taking this on , secondly I have to have a serious operation on my foot , that will make it impossible to do after this .
Thanks to everyone for their continued support , which is so appreciated .
Mike and Pascale
