Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This March I’m walking 10,000 steps a day throughout the month to help beat cancer. Help me Walk All Over Cancer and fund life-saving research by making a donation to my page.
As it has been impossible to continue fund raising through bridge events I decided to do this in March . I hope you will support the event as charities are suffering at this time through lack of fund raising.
If anyone out there would like to walk with me on one of the days email me and I 'll get back to you. In the meantime I hope you are well and surviving this pandemic. Bridge will be back, face to face. Andrew is booked for February 3rd 2022.
