Andy Chalmers (46), from Carnock will be walking the nearly 1,700 miles which spans between the most southerly and most northern points in the UK in between October 9 this year and next year, which is the anniversary of his wife Suez’s death in 2018.
Andy is doing so to support The Brain Tumour Charity, which is the world's leading brain tumour charity and the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours globally.
Andy said: “I feel nervous, excited and daunted about the challenge ahead. I have been planning it for a while so it’s great to start counting the steps and miles towards my target. I have had so many messages of support from friends and family as well as complete strangers on social media too which is amazing and definitely helping to inspire and motivate me."
The Brain Tumour Charity is committed to saving and improving lives by moving further and faster to help those affected by a brain tumour.
Sarah Lindsell, chief executive of The Brain Tumour Charity, said: “Andy’s real and enduring dedication to supporting us is fantastic.
“His story is absolutely heartbreaking as he was robbed of the love of his life when Suez passed away. That’s why we’re working tirelessly to find a cure for this disease which 32 people are diagnosed with every day.”
