My Challenge

Over the May bank holiday weekend 2022, I tackled a 65-mile coastal challenge to raise funds and promote life after a stroke/brain injury.

I walked and ran, over three consecutive days, along the South West Coastal Footpath between Newquay and Sennen Cove.

This year I have made it my ambition to help other survivors..

As you may have gathered by now, the outdoor world and a variety of physical activities have provided me with many years of pleasure.

My earliest memories through recovery were focussed on returning to enjoy them again once more. I witnessed for myself the healing power of the sea and how my experiences outdoors helped me and close family to cope and manage the trauma around my sudden illness.

My Aims

To raise the awareness of life after a stroke/brain injury.

To complete a huge personal physical challenge and
encourage other people to start their own.

 

To promote positivity after a life changing injury.

 

To raise funds to help others.

We did it!

WOWEE what an awesome challenge…

65 miles over 3x days along the South West Coast Path was an intense & immense experience!! On our last day we ran/ walked 22 miles and ascended the height of Ben Nevis! 

 

I’m forever indebted to so many friends, family, & supporters in fulfilling this crazy idea, that myself & 2x guys from my local Cornwall Stroke Community Group invented one year ago after drinking too many lattes!!

This completes the first stage of my current Stoked Stroke Survivors & Supporters project to encourage other brain injury survivors, & their loved ones, to participate together in beach activities. At present we’ve fundraised over £3,300 which is a huge amount… thank you ALL! 

 

I will now get busy in organising with Coastal Crusaders CIC, the next stage of this project. 

Watch this space!
