Soroptimist International Bristol (SI Bristol): Walking Challenge.
This year, SI Bristol is supporting two charities and as a fundraiser I have challenged myself, a 76-year-old, to walk at least a 100 miles a month during SI Bristol’s centenary year (1st April 2020 to 31st March 2021). The number of steps I walk will be recorded on my mobile phone and mileage calculated at 2,000 steps per mile.
The amount of money raised by SI Bristol will be spit evenly between two Bristol-based charities.
1. National Centre for Integrative Medicine, based in Bristol, offering a variety of therapies to help people improve their lives (www.ncim.org.uk)
2. Lifeskills, Bristol's unique safety education centre ( www.lifeskills-bristol.org.uk)
Having challenged myself, I challenge you to give generously! Thank you in anticipation.
Added 2nd September: I am delighted with the support that I am getting; thank you everyone. During August I walked 136 miles. Thus, for from 1st May to 31st August, I have walked 543 miles, giving me 143 miles 'in the bank'. I am determined to walk 1,200 miles in the Soroptimist Club's centenary year. This photograph at Selworthy Beacon was taken while I was on a guided walking holiday. Four months down - eight to go! Cheers, Marion..
Added 1st April: Thanks to coronavirus, my challenge will be greater than I anticipated because for the first few months, by necessity, I will be walking alone. How about donating £12 - representing 1p for each of the 1,200 miles I will walk? Alternatively, donate any amount that pleases you - and please leave an encouraging comment; it helps!. Thank you. If you leave your name, I will let you know the final amount that I raise. Marion.

3 May 2020: Thank you so much to all you wonderful supporters. During April I walked 217,024 steps, which with my stride is equivalent to 108.5 miles. So I am on target. I have developed a blister on my left big toe and right heel, so it is on with the plaster and lining my shoes with lambs wool!
