Run Walk Ride for Rwanda - the Walk

Thanks to everyone for supporting the 'Walk' leg of my Run, Walk, Ride 4 Rwanda challenge. Having done the 'Run' leg in July, I just managed to squeeze the walk into August, walking it on Monday 31st August.

I caught the 6:56 train from Freshfield to Hunts Cross, then walked the near 27 miles back, mainly along the Liverpool Loop and Cheshire Lines paths.

Starting walking just before 8am, I made steady progress, taking my first short break six miles later. Near Aintree, there was a short unscheduled stop when meeting a former work colleague, last met in 2001! Then more steady progress before taking a short lunch break having covered almost 19 miles in five hours.

Thanks to everyone who has supported me, and made the journey worthwhile - donations at myDonate will go a long way to improving safe motherhood and maternal health, and funding the rebuilding of Shyira maternity hospital, will help the lives of mothers and their babies in Rwanda
