Bridlington Half Marathon - The Fundraising Total

21st October 2013

4 weeks ago I announced I was doing The Bridlington Half Marathon for The Katie Walker Cancer Trust. My goal was to raise £2000 from scratch. I knew the money wouldn't just come to me. I'd have to go out and earn it. So.. with your help, support and ideas we came up with a load of fundraising events. Here's the highlights from them... I really can't believe how much we've done in just 4 weeks! Click the play button to hear this emotive audio...

And here's the moment I revealed to Katie's mum Julie Walker just how much we'd raised for The Katie Walker Cancer Trust. Remember.. the target was £2000! She had no idea just how much more we'd raised...


Look out for the gallery from all the fundraising events online soon.. Here's me yesterday moments after I crossed the finish line.. Finally.. THANK YOU for all your incredible support! We are a small stretch of coastline with a big, big heart. This is the best, most supportive place in the country and I'm proud to call it home! You're all superstars! Paddy :) xxx
