This year Bowel Cancer UK is suffering from the lack of fundraising events due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The charity have had to change their plans and can no longer hold these large events but it's not stopping their many supporters holding their own events!
This year I will be re-walking my 5 mile memory walk I held back in 2017, which treks across Newquay's river along the Gannel and I am inviting other people to take part (socially distanced) and make a donation of their choice to the charity to take part. Most of the walk is flat and it's breathtakingly beautiful and was one of mine and Marty's favourite places in Cornwall.
For anyone that can't make the walk, you can sponsor me to paint a rock, which I will drop at certain points of the walk to raise awareness of Bowel Cancer UK and to remember loved ones lost to any type of cancer. In return for your donation, I will photo your rock and send you a picture of where it's been placed. If you'd like to find out more or to request a rock, please email me at email@example.com
Dates for the walks
I want to try and raise as much money as possible for Bowel Cancer UK, so I have planned the following dates to give people plenty of options to take part and complete the 5 mile walk:
Timings for the walks
Timings for the walks will be confirmed nearer the event as we need the tide to be on its way out. As soon as I have confirmation of the tide times, I will update this page with the details.
Complete the walk in your own time
If you can't make the above dates or don't want to take part in the group walk but would still like to take part; for a donation of your choice to Bowel Cancer UK, I can provide you with an online GPS route of the walk, which you can access off of any smart phone and walk it in your own time. Just drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward on the details to you.
Find the hidden treasure!
To add a bit of fun, there will be a treasure box to find on the route with a little keepsake 'thank you' from me for your efforts of taking part.

Is the walk dog friendly?
For me this is probably the most important question and I can confirm it is dog friendly! I will have my sweet Whippet x Collie with me who will be providing love and cuddles to all that want it (in return for tennis ball throwing - his words not mine!).
