We set off on our trip to raise money for DC Boxing Club. Our aim was to walk 350 miles in three weeks, and raise £1500 in the process. We almost succeeded, raising £1245.70 by walking 250 miles in two weeks. It was a great trip and one that we both have very fond memories of.
For those of us who supported us through the trip, keeping us motivated with text messages, facebook and blog comments, and those who just enjoyed reading the blog and laughing at us when we limped back… thank you! It was a great trip and we raised a lot of money for a good cause.
For those of you who missed out on the excitement of this trip, subscribe / follow / like this page and whatnot, as there will be future exciting trips for you to read about (and good causes to donate money to!). For now though, you can read all about our 2011 adventure on this site.
