Story

In 2012 I walked Hadrian’s Wall (74 miles) in under 30 hours and ran the Great North Run twice dressed as Forest Gump!  These efforts saw more than £4,500 raised for good causes in the North East.

 

This year I‘m walking 24 Peaks in the Lake District in a timed 24 hours (see below) I'm always overwhelmed by the generosity of people and I'm sure with this challenge I will be again.  This event will be in aid of Newcastle United Foundation, which whilst associated with the club is a self-sufficient charity so really needs our support for the work they do int he community. So, dig deep, get involved and help me reach my target!
