George Davison, who has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is proposing to undertake a 1,000 kilometre walk which could take him up to a month to complete.
Ali Breakwell, community fundraiser with the Promise Dreams children’s charity, said, “George contacted us last month after he heard about the work we do and all the fundraising we do for terminally and seriously ill children nationally.
“We had our annual walk recently called Walk For Dreams, which raised just over £21,000, which is amazing as we receive no government funding. George heard about this and felt he wanted to do something. He couldn’t make it to our walk because of the distance so he is proposing to do his own walk.
He is quite amazing, as at 71, he has an ectopic heartbeat,chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and is recovering from Prostate Cancer.”
George is proposing to walk 1,000 kilometres over a maximum of 30 days. He will start on 1 September.
Having completed a number of charity walks in the past for different charities, this could be George’s biggest challenge to date.
Ali added, “We are trying to give George all the support, encouragement and exposure possible – not only for the immense benefit to our charity and the families he will help, but for George himself. What a selfless man.”
