Story

I wrote a Bucket List in early 2014 and one of the items on it was to complete one of Scotland's Great Trails. I'd walked several sections of the Fife Coastal Path over the years but the idea of walking all 117 miles, from Kincardine to Newburgh, really appealed to me. I completed the walk during the first fortnight of September and am in the process of posting 117 photos on my blog - 1 photo per mile. 

I realised that this would be a great opportunity to raise funds for a good cause. Cancer Research UK is my chosen charity. To make things fun, for every £1 you donate, please quote a number between 1 and 117 when you sponsor me. You will be sponsoring that specific mile(s) of the walk, and you can look out for the corresponding photo on my blog: http://karenthorburn.wordpress.com/

More than 1 in 3 people in the UK will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime. I'm delighted to have smashed my original target of raising a minimum of £117 - £1 per mile - to raise funds for a worthy cause that is relevant to us all.
