DIMBLEBY CANCER CARE ALL NIGHT 50KM WALK #WALK50
On Friday June 10th, Kate Dimbleby and I did an OVERNIGHT walk of 50km (that's 30 miles) all around London, for Dimbleby Cancer Care - leaving at 9pm and arriving back around 8.30am - and we've raised 5x our £500 target so far at http://justgiving.com/RuAndKate because of our incredibly lovely friends.
Dimbleby Cancer Care work with the NHS at Guy’s and St Thomas’s hospitals to provide support to people with cancer, their families and carers. They are amazing. They were originally set up after Richard Dimbleby died aged 52 in 1965, the first public figure to speak openly about having cancer, which was a huge thing at the time.

The walking was the fun bit; the hard bit was done by you all giving up so much of your own money to support DCC. We aimed for £500, and so far you've given £2581, which has been coming in all night, so YOU ARE ALL THE BEST (and whenever we checked, it was like rocket fuel for us to keep feeling happy and power on ignoring the soreness and fatigue)
I’m now posting this as a way to put off doing something about those blisters.
