I decided from the beginning that I was going to do this walk for charity. One of the key reasons why I had decided to undertake this walk was because I had lost both good friends and colleagues to Cancer during the past 3 years and I wanted to honour them. I thought that attempting to raise a small amount for a relevant charity would be a good way of doing this. I also wanted to try and raise money for a mental health charity. Gemma, my wife works with people suffering from mental health illness and we decided that a charity with links to helping people with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) would be a good cause to help.
