Heart’s Jamie Theakston’s Long Walk to London

Heart's Jamie Theakston's Long Walk to London

Could this be the biggest fundraising challenge yet for Global’s Make Some Noise? Later this month, Heart London’s Jamie Theakston will be walking 7 marathons in 7 days – all the way from Cardiff to London. That’s 365,400 steps and more than 180 miles! 

On Friday 28th September, Jamie will take his first stride from the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff and his route will take him over the Severn Bridge and along the Thames to London. Jamie will be meeting ten small charities that Make Some Noise supports before finishing at Global HQ in Leicester Square on Friday 5th October for Make Some Noise Day.

Here’s why Jamie has decided to take on this epic challenge for us:

“I’ve seen first-hand the real difference your money can make to youngsters living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity and that’s what’s inspired me to step up to this intimidating challenge.

I’m going to walk from Cardiff to London in a week. That’s 7 marathons in 7 days! To say that I’m a little apprehensive is an understatement. Even walking one marathon is a challenge, but doing that every day for seven days in a row is a massively daunting prospect that will push me to my absolute limits.

It’s undoubtedly the toughest thing I’ve ever done and I’d be massively grateful of any donation you can give towards my fundraising target. That support will help to keep me motivated when I’m struggling with all the aches, pains and exhaustion that will inevitably come my way.”
