More details of their trek »
On May 24th 2008, Ben Mills and Gemma Miller will be embarking on a 190 mile walk from Robin Hood’s Bay on the East coast of Britain to St. Bee’s Head on the West.
The route passes through the North Yorkshire Moors, Yorkshire Dales and Lake District, and features 16,300 feet of elevation.
We will be supported by a fully vegan diet throughout the walk (and training), and whilst it is usually completed in around 2 weeks we are aiming to reach the end within 8 days.
We are undertaking this challenge to raise money for St. Francis Animal Welfare, an animal shelter located in Fair Oak, Hampshire (registered charity number 263172). Formed in 1953, they take in both domestic and wild animals and look after them until they can be placed with loving homes or released back into the wild. It is their policy to never put a healthy animal down.
Please sponsor us on our trek, every penny raised will go directly to St. Francis Animal Welfare and enable them to care for many sick, injured or unwanted animals in need of help.
