George Defeats ‘Just Walk’

GeorgeGeorge Haswell has accomplished ‘Just Walk’ – a challenging 37 mile hike – raising over £450 for YLF!

The early morning start on 10th May at Goodwood Racecourse, had George trekking off on his 60km walk across the South Downs!

George says, “It was by far the greatest challenge I have achieved! The weather was forever changing from rain to overcast, a bit of sun then back to rain. The wind was very strong all day too. The views were fantastic and the hills were really high going through all types of terrain. 

At 48km I decided to up my game and ran the last 12km. I completed my journey in approximately 12 hours 25mins.”

George Midway2A tiring 12 hours, plus months of training, has all lead to this amazing achievement and we are all very proud of George’s success! A personal achievement and huge delight for YLF to be the grateful recipients of £450!

A massive well done to George and thanks to all those who have supported and sponsored him and the children of YLF. This fundraised money will be of huge benefit to those most vulnerable in our region.
