Pat Buckley 13 May 2020
Pat has been diagnosed with MDS – a type of rare blood cancer for which she is now receiving treatment but the whole family want to support the MDS Patient Support Group Charity to raise awareness of this little known condition. The Buckley’s have set themselves the challenge of completing the epic distance of traveling 1744 kilometers from Land’s End to John O’Groats!
Due to the Corona Virus lockdown restrictions the mission will be completed virtually by logging their mileage as they go. Every day each team member will enter their mileage which will be deducted off the total distance progressing them along the route. The distance will be covered by running, cycling and walking.
Corinthian Otters, Emily (10) and Sammy Buckley (8) have already clocked up a combined total mileage of over 90K between them! You can follow their progress of the mission on the link below and read their whole story and make a donation via the Virgin Money website (link also below).
