Every year since William’s diagnosis we’ve organised some kind of sponsored event to raise money for charities we believe can directly help William and other children with brain tumours.
To mark him making it to five years since diagnosis (nope, we can’t believe it either!), we have decided to organise our most ambitious event yet – walking the entire length of Hadrian’s Wall – all 84 miles from the East Coast of England to the West Coast.
It’s still early days organising the event but at the moment we’re looking to do it during the first May Bank Holiday of 2019 so we’ll be starting at Bowness-on-Soloway on the West Coast on Saturday 4th May with a view to finishing at Wallsend on the East Coast on Monday 6th. At the moment we’re planning on camping along the way. At this stage, though, we’re open to suggestion.
It’s a very exciting but uncertain time for research into the area we believe will be of most help to William and kids like him so we haven’t decided exactly where any money raised will go but participants can rest assured that we’ll make sure, by the time it comes to raising money, everything raised will go directly towards the research we believe will help William and kids like him.
If you’re interested in taking part either as an individual or as part of a group, please get in touch. For updates you can follow our Blog, Facebook Page or dedicated Web Page. There’s also a Facebook Event Page.
