The group of 14 walkers from Oldham reached the half way point of their journey this afternoon as they continue to raise money in memory of a three-year-old who tragically died of cancer.Molly-Ann Smith lost her battle with a rare cancer, neuroblastoma, on Christmas Day, 2005. To mark the 10th anniversary of her death, members of her family have taken on the challenging walk in a bid to raise awareness and money for two charities.
Although suffering with blisters, aches and pains, the walkers are in high spirits and confident they can complete their journey within schedule.
After walking 60 miles over the past two days, they are aiming to be in Worcester tonight.
It’s also a time for celebration as they have raised over £1,000 and are now well on their way to smashing their target of £1,500.
The money raised will go to children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent, which provides support, and Hugs for Henry — a charity set up by parents of a neuroblastoma sufferer to help others in the same situation.
Supporters can still donate online via the Just Giving page with their target set for £10,000.
Keep going, guys!
