THE 6 MONTH STATS AND THANKS – 5760km done!

WP_20150212_008

I have reached the 6 month stage of my expedition and am happy to say that I am on schedule and everything is going according to plan. It was on the 15th of August 2014 that I left Vancouver, Canada, and since then I have run over 5750km to  a small town in Mexico called Santa Rose de Lima. So far the expedition has raised about £10,000 ($15,500) for CALM, Macmillan and WaterAid and with 12 months still on the clock I remain hopeful of hitting my £20,000 target. Wouldn’t it be great if we hit £30,000. If you would like to donate click here or if you would like to help with the costs click here
