Story

Hi All,

DJ and Liv here. Beginning on Friday 24th February 2023, we will be walking from Amsterdam to London, covering a distance of over 400km. 

Therefore, we will be walking approximately a marathon a day (44km) for 10 straight days. 

You may be wondering why on Earth we are doing this? 

In 2010 Liv's family suddenly lost Caroline, Liv's mum. During this difficult and challenging time Winston's Wish, a children's bereavement charity, stepped in and offered invaluable help to Liv's family. 

Very quickly Liv and her family realised they wanted to give back to the charity as a small thank you for all their help and support. Therefore, in 2014 Liv and her family started a charity event known as Walk for Winston's Wish

There have been 9 Walk for Winston's Wish events since 2014, attended by hundreds of people which have subsequently raised over £27,000 for Winston’s Wish. 

However, like all great things, it must come to an end, and we have collectively decided that the 10th year, in March 2023, will be our final Walk for Winston’s Wish event.  Liv and her family are organising a black-tie ball in the local area to mark the 10th year but alongside this, Liv and her partner DJ wanted to do something extra. 

Thus, after a lot of thought and research, they came up with the idea (and very big challenge) of walking from Amsterdam to London. This challenge equates to 400+km which can be broken down into walking 10 marathons in 10 days hence the name: 10in10for10 (10 marathons in 10 days for the 10th year of Walk for Winston's Wish). 


If you would like to track the live progress of Liv and DJ on the walk, then download the Bluelane app to follow the journey step-by-step (only available on iPhone):

Likewise, we've created an Instagram page where we're also be documenting a lot of our training, preparation and the walk itself: @10in10for10_

Although this will be a very hard challenge for us, we both believe that it is entirely worth it if we're able to help Winston's Wish, even if only slightly.

Any sponsorship and donations to support us would be very appreciated - every penny will go straight towards Winston's Wish so they can continue to help children and families when they lose someone close to them.

Thanks so much in advance!
