A Walk to End Polio
A simple display to remind us of what it's all for ...
Early in the day, David was joined by President Fari for a few laps ...
... and they were joined later by John Shaw and Gordon Bacon (with dog Jack) from the Durham Bede Club.
We shared the grounds with the squad from Hartlepool United Football Club (they use Maiden Castle as a training ground on a regular basis).
Some members of the Inner Wheel Club came along to support David - including Aileen (centre) who brought a tray of hot sausage rolls!
Mike Costello came along with his Nordic Walking poles ...
... and Martin Leake joined in for a few more laps with David and Eddie Summerbell of the Bede Club.
As 2:00pm approached things got a bit spaced out ...
... so David decided to make a break for it on the last lap ...
... and crossed the finishing line in fine style.
David did it again!
Yes - David did it again. Goodness knows how many times he navigated the running track at Maiden Castle, even though it was just (!) six hours rather than the 12 hours of last year.
Well done, David!
The Graham Sports Centre at Maiden Castle is part of Durham University (Team Durham) and we are very grateful to the University for providing access to these great facilities.
With the addition of Gift Aid and the 2 for 1 funding from the Gates Foundation, David will have raised almost £2000 from this event. Again - well done David!
