|In honour of James Read’s life and in celebration of his birthday on December 27th, his friends in the UK walked 27 miles in one day. They had almost 30 people to start, meeting by the tree of life outside Lincoln Cathedral, where James was a chorister. Friends, family and teachers joined part way for some sections and six friends completed the full 27 miles, clocking 63,000 steps, to Sleaford church. |
The last three hours were in the dark and rain; one person lost both shoes to mud and trekked the last two fields barefoot! This incredibly dedicated group raised over $900 for the APS Type 1 Foundation.
They are encouraging everyone to walk for James as part of a 1000 mile walk.
