Hugh and Olly do the Coast to Coast Walk for IMARAA fundraising project by Imara CIO
They have done it! Olly and Hugh completed the coast to coast walk on Friday 3rd of August 2018
Over 192 miles of tough terrain, hot weather, torrential down pours, electric storms,washed out tent and blisters. They did it in 13 days all the way from St Bees on the West coast to Robin Hoods Bay on the East. They each picked up a pebble on St Bees beach,carried them all the way and threw them in to the sea at Robin Hoods Bay - a tradition to mark the end of the walk. They are really chuffed and humbled that people are being very generous and supporting them to raise money for Imara.
The lads have faced blisters, electric storms very hot days and torrential rains which left them with a flooded tent but have completed over half the journey. Whilst very tired they are determined to complete the walk. They just hope others will be generous and support them to raise money for Imara.
