David Rose is raising money for The Child Care Action Trust

Durham Coast Slog for Step Together

Event date: 27th July 2011

My story

Well, I 'failed' in that I hit the wall at 37.5 miles. All had been going well until then, walking at 4 miles an hour plus but, with very little warning I started shivering and feeling both sick and giddy. It would have been madness to continue.

I am inevitably disappointed, but I am glad I have tried. I wanted to do something that would be a real challenge and I always knew that it was as likely that I would fail to complete the distance as get the 40 miles. It was the trying that matters, rather than the perfection - something that the children who come to Step Together and their parents experience every day.

So thank you for supporting me and I hope you won't mind too much if my bodily limitations got in the way a little. Thanks to you, I have hit my target of £400 and I know that as I type this (on 28th July) there is still some more money to come in.

If you want to find out more about Step Together, their web page is at and, from that page, there is a link to the main Child Care Action Trust site. Should you want to get involved with them in any way, I am sure they would appreciate your continuing support.

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto The Child Care Action Trust.
