WE DID IT! Thank you so much to all our sponsors and supporters, we really couldn't have done it without you.At 8AM on Saturday 29th May 16 young widows will start walking At 8AM on Saturday 16 young widows started walking from Richmond, London towards Brighton. Not all will walk as far as Brighton but those who do won't stop until they get there, no sleeping allowed!
A distance of 100km or 62.2 miles, it'll take around 20-24 hours to complete, walking both through the day and night and over both the North and South downs. A 17th member of our team, Phillipe, will take on the 100km challenge in France.
If you think they're bonkers for even considering this (when they could quite easily just catch a train or bus) please consider sponsoring them.

WAY Widowed and Young is the only national charity in the UK for people aged 50
or under when their partner died. It's a peer-to-peer support group operating with a network of
volunteers who have been bereaved at a young age themselves, so they understand exactly what
other members are going through.
