My story

[p]My sponsored challenge this year is another long distance virtual walk on my treadmill. Last year I walked the length of Nicaragua and now I'm going to be tackling the island of Ometepe, where SIFT's medical work is based. My 100 mile challenge takes me around and up Ometepe's two volcanoes and passes through the communities that SIFT helps.[/p][p]I'll be on my treadmill for two hours each day, starting on May 1st. If you want to see how the walk's going you can visit my [url=]walk map[/url], where you can track my progress in real time and see photos of the places that I'm passing. As my walk includes a number of ascents of Ometepe's volcanoes I'll also be climbing the equivalent distance by stairs![/p][p]I'm doing this challenge to raise money to support SIFT's amazing health clinics in Nicaragua. Every week Dr Sandra and her team of nurses bring everyday healthcare to rural communities on Ometepe. It's the kind of health service that we value here in the UK, and it really makes a difference to the lives of the poor. You can have a look at the photos below to see Dr Sandra and her team in action.[/p][p]I'm hoping to raise at least £2,000 through this challenge, which will provide free medicines for two months for everyone who comes to our clinics.[/p]
