Pacific Crest Trail

PCT makes a child free. Op 24 juli is het eindelijk zover! Wij, Ben en Frank stappen dan in het vliegtuig richting Los Angeles. Aldaar aankomend willen we zo snel mogelijk per trein richting Bakersfield afreizen. Vandaar rest een korte afstand om aan onze wandeltocht van 500 km. te kunnen beginnen. Wandelen gaan we op de Pacific Crest Trail, in midden Californië. Daarmee gaat onze lang gekoesterde wens in vervulling om een maand lang fysiek en kameraadschappelijk bezig te zijn in the ” great wild Nature”. Dat we ook voor een goed doel lopen ( warchild) sterkt ons in onze motivatie straks ook door te gaan als het lopen misschien wat ongemakkelijk wordt.

Edward Kerry (UK)

Castle to Castle

In August 2017, I’ll be running 1,130 miles to raise awareness and money for The Brain Tumour Charity. For Castle to Castle, I’ll run between the castles in all the UK and Ireland’s capital cities – from The Tower of London to Edinburgh Castle, Belfast Castle, Dublin Castle and Cardiff Castle, aiming to return to The Tower of London in a gruelling 22 days. The challenge is a way of raising as much money as possible for The Brain Tumour Charity and remembering my amazing sister Tracey, who sadly died in 2003. When she passed away, Tracey was only 34 years of age. Over the last few months, I’ve not been able to stop thinking about the fact that this year I, too, will be 34. Having done smaller fundraising events, I now feel it’s time for me to really make a difference, and hopefully prevent someone else from experiencing what my family did 14 years ago.
