The intrepid challengers completed the 50km Thames Path Challenge, battling rain, wind and mud from Runnymede to Henley-on-Thames on September 10th 2016.
The 22 members of the team supported 9 charities as they took on the distance and fought the elements with every step. The team included staff members from Berkshire Vision, local business women and a visually impaired walker, Derek Gardner who was a real inspiration.
With many weeks of training as the team dedicated their time and energy to prepare for the event they came together on the day to cross the finish line in amazing times ranging from 8 – 11 hours. Each walker thoroughly deserved their medal and glass of bubbles!
The team raised over £15,000 for 9 charities with over £9,000 being donated to local sight loss charity, Berkshire Vision.
It was an amazing event to be part of and a real achievement with the donations being raised for each charity. So what’s next year?
