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.
Sorry for the break in updates, I really don’t know where the time has flown! I’ve made some nice progress since last time and I have made a big decision – more later. Firstly though, here are the statistics to the end of June:
- 1740km (1081 miles – more on this later!)
- 41 Marathon distances
- As far as Buckingham to Vilnius, Lithuania (as the crow flies)
- 128727 calories
- 86% of target distance
What is the significance of the distance and what is my big decision?
Well, the end of June marks the halfway point of the year and as I am now within sight of the goal of 2016km and over 1008 MILES, I thought, what if I could do it again and make it 2016 MILES? So thats what I am going to now aim for – must be mad!
Having said I must be mad, I have to say that I have been blown away with the level of support and donations that I have received (please keep them coming) – it is heartening how generous people can be – so a big thank you, for your donations and kind words
This week, I will be performing my usual role, as a JCB driver at the British Grand Prix, which I am really looking forward to – so to help my mileage, I will be walking to my post, on the inside of Stowe Corner, each day, rather than taking the shuttle bus – every little helps. I’ll let you know how it goes next time.
That’s it for now – happy walking, see you soon.
