#PunchOn

In memory of

David Atley

I’ve been asked to join a team at work to do the London shine walk marathon in aid of cancer research and after all the crazy challenges I’ve been doing the last few years it feels odd that I’m raising money by doing a walk but we will come back to that.

When it came down to filing out the application I knew I was going to have to do this in memory of someone - The nicest, most kind hearted, happy go lucky person I ever met. The Aussie with an infectious zest for life David Atley.

I never met anyone quite like him and probably won’t ever again, He had such an incredible positive outlook on life and he touched the lives of pretty much everyone he met and could teach us all a lesson on how to be a better human. To convey Dave’s positive outlook and the content of his character It feels right to share some of his words.

Cancer - 'Trying to test my mental, psychological, physical and spiritual strength.'
‘I feel an urge to stand tall and realize that I am here to show what happens when things go bad for humans. I can show people that it's not the end when cancer is here. I’m here to show people that we can reach out for love and that's ok. I feel like I’m here to show the world how to cope and march/push forward in the face of the adversity whilst smiling the whole way along..’

I haven't done many Charity events but when I was asked to do this one it was always going to be about honouring the #PunchOn mentality of Dave!

I felt like I had to put a twist on this walk and Inspired by the sandbag carry up Rivington pike last weekend it seems like a good idea that this walk involves a carry. And how much I carry depends on you lot – For every £10 sponsored I will add 1KG to the bag. I think Dave would approve.

Now in the words of Bob Geldof … Give us your fucking money!!
