Walking to raise money for the MHF charity

I have always wanted to walk the Great Glen Way and I am going to do this at the end of May 2012. The hostels and B&B's are booked and all that's required now is for me to be reasonably fit

So I have started walking on a regular basis, as and when I can. So far I have walked 370 miles since the end of July. My intention is to complete 1000 miles in the next few months.

Whilst doing the walking I thought it a good idea to try to raise some money for the MHF charity,which this year is Mesothelioma UK.

So if anyone would like to sponsor me to reach these 2 objectives, please do so via the MHF Just Giving account.

I record my walks on the "Runkeeper" app on my android phone so my mileage is verifiable on the Runkeeper website.

when will you finish so we can donate before the end of our charity year which I assume is Dec31st ??? xxx

Im doing really well on my Drug and Chemo Trial my Chemo is in tablet form and you dont have the sickness or so many side effects and the drug is causing bruising and I had a blood clot but Im doing well.
Mesothelioma Uk gives me so much info and I in turn pass them a lot of info to through my blog.
The are an off shot of Macmillan and they are trying to build up the
Mesothelioma nursing and i have received a Newsletter that says :-

Finally, we are also delighted to announce that we are soon to start part funding our second (my post is the first) Mesothelioma Nursing post in Cambridge. We have plans to support a 3rd post within 6 months and long term, funding dependent, we hope to have a team of 6 Mesothelioma Nurse Specialist posts strategically places across the UK. This will help meet our vision of providing access to expert nursing support, information and education across the UK. Watch this space!
Kind regards
Liz Dawson

So we are playing a very important part raising money for this work and all the other work that Mesothelioma UK do in helping Research and Awareness for the future as so many new cases are being diagnosed now.

So Geoff thanks for all your walking xxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Mavis
I have been thinking about this also.

I'm currently at 460 miles and hope to do 200 miles per month. So I should be in the region of 600 miles at the end of November. So it should be around the end of January, early February before I finish, snow permitting
