My story

A true test of stamina and determination- the challenge is no ordinary charity walk it's tough, and for certain - no stroll in the park! Tackling 50 km in under 12 hours.

An early morning start, and from Putney Bridge the route follows the Thames Path west towards Windsor via checkpoints at Kew Gardens, Hampton Court, and Shepperton before arriving at the National Trust site at Runnymede - witness to the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215 - a fitting end-point for 50km walkers...

Luckily I will be supported by my Dad who will be walking with me and potentially dragging me to the finish line!

We are taking on this challenge to raise awareness and funds for Pioneers UK Ministries.

As many of you will know I (Bethany) spent last summer in one of the poorest countries in the world, Burkina Faso; living and working alongside the long term Pioneers team based there.

The Pioneers team in Burkina are involved in drawing alongside and meeting the needs of the local and surrounding communites of Bobo Dioulasso. Supporting the local hospitals and orphanges as well as running a school to provide a free school education and daily meals for many of the children in Bobo and the nearby villages; who would otherwise not be able to recieve even a basic education.

They are invovled in supporting the churches across the country who are trying to meet the daily needs of the people of Burkina. Pioneers help fund and support teams like this in many more countries and it is a charity very close to my heart and one we feel is worth walking 50km for!

Please pop over to http://www.pioneers-uk.org for more information about the charity. All donations and pledges will be gratefully recieved!!

Love and Blessings

Bethany & Allan
