Henry Cooper is walking 2016 km in the year 2016!
Henry is walking 2016 km in the year 2016, to raise some funds for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance.
Some of you may have noticed that I have been doing a lot of walking (and cycling), lately. Some of you may have also noticed that I am now a little lighter (and fitter) than I was a few years ago.
I thought I would set up this blog to tell my story of why I took this step (see what I did there!) and to share some of my experiences on my journey (see what I did again!), maybe to inspire you and maybe to tell you that if an old codger like me can get himself reasonably fit and have a nice time doing it, then maybe you can too.
I’ve also taken the plunge (something I hope NOT to do whilst out walking!) and set up a Justgiving page https://www.justgiving.com/birchcooper/ where I am going to try to raise some funds for the local Thames Valley Air Ambulance, by trying to walk 2016 km in the year 2016 – I hope you will be able to support me in the weeks and months ahead and maybe even join me and maybe lose a few lbs? Any spare £s you may have will be gratefully received.
Please come back soon and see how I am getting on and to share some of my experiences past and future.
