Dave's Pennine Stomp for Doddie – the Next Chapter
Saturday 10 June 2023 to Thursday 29 June 2023
Starting on June 10th 2023, David will be undertaking a second fundraising challenge, to complete a walk covering 300+ miles of moorland and mountains in northern England (and a touch of Scotland!)
The walk will take in the “Pennine Journey” (a national long distance path) together with the northern section of the “Pennine Way” (a national trail). The route will start in Kirk Yetholm, in the Scottish Borders, travelling south across the Cheviot Hills to meet Hadrian’s Wall (58 miles). This will be the starting point for the Pennine Journey – a circular 247 mile walk around the Northern Pennines and the Yorkshire Dales.
David says, "my fundraising is in support of the “My Name’5 Doddie Foundation”, which works to improve the lives of those affected by Motor Neuron Disease. In 1994, my mother died from Motor Neuron Disease (MND) after a debilitating battle which dominated the last several years of her life. This walk is to celebrate Mum’s memory, and to raise funds for the foundation – funds which will be used for driving research to secure treatments and eventually a cure for MND, and to raise funds to support families who are going through the same ordeal.
A huge frustration that accompanies a diagnosis of MND is the lack of treatments available, and the terrible prognosis that this causes. I am walking again for those who cannot. So please sponsor me, and support a great cause. With your help, we can bring hope to the lives of MND sufferers and their families."
