“We weren’t expecting him to raise anything like that amount, but I posted about what he was doing in some local social media groups and the donations just kept coming! We had some T shirts made for him with ‘Redwings’ on the front and ‘Running 60 miles’ on the back, and people said they’d seen him and wanted to support him. It was really brilliant,”
With the help of their good friend David, who was designated van driver as well as a fellow walker, Izzy and her dad walked 10 miles a day for 10 consecutive days and completed their amazing fundraising challenge on Izzy’s 11th birthday! What an achievement!
Raised over £2000 walking around the Shetland Islands in aid of our own Shetland ponies
“My sister was passionate about Redwings. She had a horse called Amy and wanted to be an equine vet. She tragically passed away in 1992, when she was just 13 years old.
“I’ve always wanted to do raise money for Redwings in Caroline’s memory and now felt like the right time. I did the 10k version of the Warrior and it was so tough! My friends did the 20k and I don’t know how they managed it! I’m going to be doing some more fundraising soon.”
