Mission Accomplished!

A great day was had by all on Saturday, as ITM & Friends set off from Brecon as planned at 11am.

It took a lot of effort by everyone, from the cyclists to the people supporting the event, however everyone made it to the finishing post in one piece.
Start Point at Brecon

There were a few incidents on the way, Tony fell into the Brecon Canal, the support vehicle was chased off someone's car park, and Tony (him again!) was deliberately misdirected by cheeky kids in Merthyr - however all agreed it was a great day.

It was nice to see a few familiar faces turn up at the finishing post to offer their congratulations, and also passers by and patrons of the Mochyn Du pub were extremely generous in donating too.

We'll be posting more over the next few days to explicitly thank people who've helped us, and give you an update on funds raised, but in the meantime enjoy an album of the big day here:

We're halfway there!

Thanks to the participants' enthusiasm & commitment, and to your generous donations we've reached the halfway total towards the ambitious target £2,500.

In case you're wondering, the target of £2500 was set by Gary because:

  • 2008 first Alzheimer's Society Memory walk raised over £500
  • 2009 year two, 4 memory walks raised over £1200
  • 2010 year three, 6 Memory Walks and 55 miles cycle - the ambition is to double the amount raised year on year.

If you haven't already donated, please visit the JustGiving page (link on the right), if you already have given, why not come along on Saturday to see them earn your money! (see previous post for itinerary).
