100km Thames Path Challenge
Raising money for Help for Heroes
The Challenge
Walking 100km from Putney (SW London) to Henley (Surrey). I am aiming to do this in 24 hours.
The Charity
My cousin was badly injured in Afghanistan in 2010 and Help for Heroes were amazing in the help and support they provided him and still do. This was everything from ensuring he had access to a laptop whilst he was hospitalized for 3 months to converting his bathroom in his house he bought with his wife to ensure easy access as he lost his leg.
The Training
I am walking at least three to four times per week, one or two short 2-3 hour distances and then one or two long 5 hour and above distances.
