Walking a marathon for Prostate Cancer

By cfmaster

(and getting back in time for the England vs Sweden game!)

 

Congratulations to our very own Stuart Dewin and nine other hardy souls who have recently completed their challenge to walk a marathon to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.

It was an early start with them all gathering at the local cricket club at 6am, where a minibus took them to Garstang to begin the feat. Needless to say, they were well stocked with provisions for the day ahead.

Of course, when planning the date for the walk, none of them even dreamt England would have reached the quarter finals of the World Cup. This certainly gave them an incentive to get back in time for the England v Sweden game at 3pm and increased the pace somewhat!

It was a gloriously warm day and we’re pleased to report the lads all managed to complete the whole walk (roughly 24 miles) without any blisters or injuries. Most importantly, they were back in time to watch the match together and see England advance into the semi finals!

As mentioned, the group’s Big Walk was in aid of Prostate Cancer UK. The charity fights to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life, funding ground-breaking research, raising the profile of the disease and improving care.

Each member of the group donated £20 and Questa has agreed to match that. If you’d like to support Stuart and the boys, you can do so here.

Thank you!
