Team story

[p]Meet the [b]Walk the Journey[/b][b] Walking Team[/b], Trevor Payne, Alice Denham, Linda Bridgland, walking with Lead Adult Physical Activity Co-ordinator (Charles Allen) and Mother, Alison Curtis (who is walking on behalf of her daughter, 12 year old Ria who has a shunt in her brain). We are rasing money for [b]James Paget University hospital A &E and Addenbrooke's Neurology Unit[/b].  The expertise and care of medical professionals in the NHS not just in hospital but in recovery gaves three of us back our lives after Trevor, Alice and Linda survived a [b]ruptured aneurysm[/b], [b]sub-arachnoid haemorrhage[/b] in the brain and resulting [b]stroke[/b]. Ria continues to survive [b]hydrocephalus[/b] due to a shunt fitted in her brain when she was just a baby.[/p][p]We were all treated at Addenbrooke's hopsital, in the[/p][lt]h1 style="font-size: 2.4em; font-weight: normal; color: #f49526; margin: 0px 0px 8px 20px; font-family: Arial, Verdana, sans-serif;"[gt]Neurosciences Critical Care Unit (NCCU)[lt]/h1[gt][p]which cares for over 700 critical ill people suffering from brain injuries each year. We would like to give something back to the hospitals that ensured our survival [b](James Paget A&E and Addenbrooke's NCCU)[/b] and the continuing survival of Alison's daughter, Ria.[/p][p]We are [b]nordic[/b] [b]walking 110 miles over 4 days[/b] from Great Yarmouth to Addenbrookes, the journey that three of us took by ambulance; a life saving journey. We are following the [b]Angles Way to Thetford[/b] and then down to Addenbrookes Hospital. We are doing the walk with Charles Allen Lead Adult Physical Activity Co-ordinator who used the [b]Exercise Referral Scheme[/b] as integral part of the recovery process. With out his help using exercise as a form of treatment during recovery life might have been very different.[/p][p]If you would like to join us for any stage of the Journey please email us walkthejourney2013@gmail.com for more information. [/p][p][b]Day ONE[/b] (21st June) Great Yarmouth, Burgh Castle, Belton, Fritton, Oulton Broad, Beccles[/p] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 18px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]Day TWO (22nd June) Beccles, Bungay, Homerfield, Mendham, Harleston, Brockdish, Scole[lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 18px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]Day THREE (23rd June) Scole, Diss, Hopton, Knettishall Health, Thetford[lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 18px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]Day FOUR (24th June) Thetford to Addenbrookes[lt]/div[gt][p][b]Day TWO[/b] (22nd June) Beccles, Bungay, Homerfield, Mendham, Harleston, Brockdish, Scole[/p][p][b]Day THREE[/b] (23rd June) Scole, Diss, Hopton, Knettishall Health, Thetford[/p][p][b]Day FOUR[/b] (24th June) Thetford to Addenbrookes[/p][p]Brain Injuries can happen to anyone, at any age, at any time and without warning.[/p][p][b]Visit our blog site: http://walkthejourney2013.wordpress.com[/b][/p][lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt][b]THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT[/b].[/p]

What an inspiration you all are!! Well done for your achievement. This is my sub money for Nordic Walking that Charlie hasn't taken, and it's only by chatting with him that I became aware of Walk The Journey.
