Inker Trailblazers trek 100km in memory of Aiden
In September, a team of 8 completed one of the toughest walking challenges in the UK to raise money for Naomi House & Jacksplace.
Gary Osmond, Zeb Inker, Stuart Allen, Dean Barton, Andy Galvin, Lee Verney, Andy Regan & Michael Barclay completed the Thames Path Challenge.
The team finished the 100km walk (approximately 62 miles) along the bank of the river Thames, in under 30 hours.
They were walking in memory of Aiden Inker. Aiden was diagnosed with Leukaemia at just six months of age and lost his battle, aged just one, in January 2010.
In the last two months of his life, Naomi House & Jacksplace supported Aiden and his family and have continued to do so since.
The Inker Trailblazers team set a fundraising target of £3,000 but people were so inspired by their efforts that they raised more than four times that! A grand total of £13,054.76!
Jill McDonagh from Naomi House & Jacksplace said:
The Inker Trailblazers have blown everyone away with their incredible fundraising efforts. The team had such a gruelling task, but they did it! And by doing so, they managed to raise enough money to fund almost 4 months of nursing care for a child at Naomi House.
Thank you and well done Inker Trailblazers!
