Walking North Downs Way for Whittington Babies

Stephen Miller and his mates walked 125 miles in five days to raise money for Whittington Babies. Below is the background on their challenge: you can read their blog here.

On Thursday the 24th of November 2011, my son Charlie Alexander Miller was born three months premature.

He was born at the UCHL, and after a week was moved to the Whittington hospital where he would spend the next three months being cared for, before we finally brought him home in early March.

The care and support we received at the Whittington Hospital was second to none, from the Doctors, Nurses and fellow parents who were also going through the same ordeal or in the case of the Whittington Babies Charity, parents who had been there and could offer words of comfort and hope.

Charlie is now 16 months old and is doing really well.  So now I feel it is my turn to give something back, and so myself and four friends, Richard Jackson, Ian Smith, Ian Stephens and Robin Pope have decided to follow in the footsteps of the Pilgrims of old and walk the North Downs Way, from Farnham to the white cliffs of Dover, a route of 125 miles which we aim to complete in 5 days.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.  http://www.justgiving.com/northdownswaychallenge
