I have been wanting to do this forever now.
Explanation time! If you don’t watch my youtube videos (which you honestly should!) then you will have no idea what I’m talking about, so here we go: I want to walk the Great Wall of China this coming May and I want to walk it for charity.
As you all know by now, or you should know, I’m a very big supporter of Believe in Magic, a charity that helps ill kids get a little bit of magic in their lives and it’s run only by Meg and her mother Jean, they do everything. When I first heard of Believe in Magic I was amazed of all the hard work these two amazing ladies put in to it and I immediately wanted to help. I have donated and attended two charity fundraiser events and offered to volunteer if they ever needed any help but I still don’t feel like I’ve done enough, therefore I want to walk these 60km in the space of five days and try and raise at least £5000 for them.
I’m not going to lie to you, China is a place that has always fascinated me, specially the Wall and that’s why I wanted to walk it and not do something else whilst trying to raise money for BiM. It’s also very expensive to go therefore I’m not only going to be saving a lot of my own money but I’m looking for sponsors, so if you know of any send them my way please!
The trek itself is 9 days where days 1 and 9 are spent travelling, day 8 visiting the city of Beijing and the rest of the days walking an average of 12km per day. If you click right HERE you will be taken to a page where you can see the exact itinerary for the trip.
Now, how can you get involved? That’s a very good question that I have a very good answer to: you can donate right here -> DONATE HERE! The page I chose to set up my donation site is called justgiving.com and you can read more about them clicking right HERE. The money will go straight to them when I get back from my trip, I’m looking to send it over to them at the end of May.
As I said before I’m an university student and I study Music Business so I’ll be trying to arrange charity concerts and other events during these coming months to raise even more money but I really need your help! During my trip I will take it upon myself not only to walk up and down thousands of stairs but also to film throughout the days and upload it once I get back.
I’m very excited about doing this and I can honestly not wait, but if I’m going to make this happen I need your help, whatever you can give helps and I know together we can reach even more than the goal I’ve set.
