My story

[p]The reigning victorious Ryder Cup captain, Thomas Bjørn, is set for one of the biggest challenges of his career as he embarks on a four-day charity walk over 210 kilometres from #Wentworth2Wales to raise funds for UNICEF and the Golf Foundation as part of the European Tour’s #GolfforGood initiative. [/p][p]He says:[/p][p]“We looked at potential routes and Wentworth to Wales made a lot of sense, although I have to admit I didn’t realise it was over 200km! It’s going to be very tough to do it in four days but I suppose the whole point of doing it is that it’s not meant to be easy. If I am going to ask people to donate their hard-earned cash then I need to earn that donation. For me, walking between 10-12 hours a day for four consecutive days will push me to the limit. [/p][p]“As a Dane who has lived most of my adult life in the UK I wanted to give something back both globally and locally and I feel that UNICEF and the Golf Foundation are a perfect fit for that. [/p][p]“I was reading some information from UNICEF recently and they say that coronavirus is the biggest global crisis for children since World War Two and that without urgent action, Covid-19 threatens to reverse 10 years of progress on reducing the number of children dying from preventable causes.[/p][p]“And being able to raise some funds to help the game of golf continue to thrive as part of the European Tour’s UK swing is something that means a lot from a personal point of view. Obviously I want to raise as much as possible but no matter how much it is, hopefully it can raise awareness and help kids around the world.”[/p]
