216 miles in six days…
George Taylor, 30, is currently serving in the Royal Air Force at RAF Marham and lives in Norwich with partner Amy and daughter Isla. George is a local man and on July 22nd will be returning to Cornwall to take on an incredible challenge. He will be running and walking from Bude to Falmouth, in sections, resting each night and completing a total of 216 miles over 6 days – more than a marathon a day which is not a challenge to be sneezed at!!
George said “Firstly, I am not a runner as such, however, I do enjoy a challenge and because of this I have decided to push myself and attempt to run, walk or crawl the route along mainly coastal path to my final destination and home town of Falmouth on Saturday 27th July where I’m hoping there will be a mass of Pink Wiggers waiting at the finish line with a beer or two to celebrate! Sadly, breast cancer is something close to my heart and it is important to keep raising funds for vital research as well as local causes. I am happy to support the Pink Wiggers and have committed myself to do this for their causes”. George will be joined on his marathon by Dave Hennessey, 29, and Dan Richardson, 24, also from Falmouth.
“I would really appreciate any donations you can give, no matter how small, every penny helps. Please go to the ‘Click to Donate’ button and help us on our way to eradicating breast cancer so that future generations can be safe. Thank you.
WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE TOTAL RAISED FOR THIS EVENT HAS REACHED £3,293.31 This is absolutely amazing, well done and Thank you’ to all three of you!
A little bird told me that George is planning something else for us in 2014… we’ll update you when we find out more.
