My story

[p][b]* [u]COVID-19 Update[/u]*[/b][/p][p]Marg’s 100 Mile Inverness & Great Glen Way Walk 2020 has been[b] [u]RE-ROUTED[/u][/b][/p][p]In the light of recent Government & Health advice I did [b]NOT[/b] do my 100 Mile Solo Walking Challenge in [b]Scotland[/b] . . . but . . . !!![/p][p]As I am under 70 years of age I [b]DID[/b] still do my 100 Mile Walk but [b]locally[/b], around Worcester, avoiding contact with humans where possible!! It was not necessary to "borrow" a dog!![/p][p]The timing of my walk also changed:[/p][p]Start - Monday 23rd March 2020[/p][p]End - Sunday 29th March 2020[/p][p]I would still love to further exceed my fundraising target for my two charities who support vulnerable people particularly at this trying time.[/p][p]Follow my re-routed walk on my Blog: [url=https://margdavieswalks.blogspot.co.uk/]https://margdavieswalks.blogspot.co.uk[/url][/p][p]I had intended to “bimble” around [b]Inverness[/b] on Friday 17th April 2020. My Great Glen Way walk was to start on Saturday 18th April and was due to finish in [b]Fort William[/b] on Thursday 23rd April. Instead I walked around the Worcester area in different terrain to that I would have experienced in Scotland. I managed some very 'ad hoc' walks over the week but was still able to cover over 100 miles.[/p][p]Each year my supporters amaze and humble me with their generosity. I’m raising funds for two charities this year. The first is [b]Cancer Research UK[/b] as I have no doubt that it is thanks to their research that I have survived two separate brushes with breast cancer and that a number of my friends have also benefited. Sadly, we all know of friends or family not as lucky who cancer has claimed or who are living with the diagnosis of a life-limiting disease. The research into the many aspects of this terrible disease must continue in order to try and give everyone the best chance possible. My second charity is the [b]Women’s Royal Army Corps Association[/b], the only veteran’s charity set up specifically to cater for the needs of female veterans. Females are often the forgotten ‘heroes’ - forgotten by society in general but also frequently under-resourced by ‘Veteran’ society as well. The WRAC Association gives not only financial support to female army veterans but also provides emotional support to a section of our community that often suffers from isolation and loneliness. The WRAC Association is a safe haven where female veterans can find the support and friendship that is often all that is required to overcome their difficulties.[/p][p]Please do follow my re-routed walk on my Blog: [url=https://margdavieswalks.blogspot.co.uk]https://margdavieswalks.blogspot.co.uk[/url][/p]
