My story

[p]85 in 24 at 60![/p][p]Please sponsor me in a crazy challenge to celebrate my 60th birthday. I have entered the Isle of Man parish walk. [/p][p][url=https://www.parishwalk.com/]https://www.parishwalk.com/[/url][/p][p]To complete it, I will need to walk 85 miles in under 24 hours beginning at 8am on 22 June 2019. Many entrants plan to stop in Peel after 32½ miles. If I get that far, I will feel entitled to keep your sponsorship, thank you. But is that my target? Absolutely not! I intend to keep going walking back to Douglas, by dawn’s early light.[/p][p]I am hoping to get oodles of money for two fine charities, one of which is Age UK Cheshire which gives information and advice, advocacy, dementia support, day care and social activities. I am privileged to work day by day with advocates from Age UK Cheshire. It also seems a good investment for my future needs![/p][p]Thank you for all your support. I decided that a sweaty cold meant that the full 85 miles was not realistic. I managed to get to Ballaugh (42 miles) in 11 hours. Enjoyed the beauty of the Manx countryside and the warm generosity of its people. Still time to sponsor me![/p][p]85 in 2020?[/p][p][br][/p]
