Over Easter 2010 I am going to walk the 95 mile route of the West Highland Way in 5 days. I am going to make this journey in memory of my friend Dario who passed away in July 2009 while out bagging his 90th Munro.
Our friendship blossomed over his twix supply in the office. During my twix raids he would talk about running and the West Highland Way Race, a race he was very proud of. Dario wondered if I wanted to help out and the Dario and Gelly race organising double act was born.
My first ever race was a Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland race and this is why I have chosen this charity as I will never forget how pleased he was when I called to say I made it over the finish line. Dario was a very supportive and treasured friend and who I miss every day especially his phonecalls!!
All donations will be very welcome and thanked with a Twix!!
FEB 2010 - thank you so much to everyone who has donated, your kindness is very much apprreciated. I need to get a big box of Twixs. I have decided that I am going to increase my target as I have exceeded my orignal target of £250.
Dario would be so touched by people's generosity. Thank you all so much.
