Yesterday, or was it this morning? Jennifer, our East Anglia support group organiser, completed the 6 mile night walk in London, from the BFI Imax on the South Bank, and here she is in all her splendour. Everyone was talking about her amazing hat, that she had made out of real carrots, but unfortunately it disintegrated by the time she got to the end of the walk. Kate was there to greet her before setting off herself on the 15 mile course. She teamed up with Team 'Olivia's Vision', a charity supporting research into uveitis. At the 12 mile checkpoint Kate got a bit worried because the legs just didn't want to move. It felt like the old PMR tightness might be coming back. But a cup of tea and a banana worked wonders and she completed the course in good time, at 4.30 in the morning. There was a lot of interest in GCA among walkers and next year we hope to field a bigger team. As it is, we've raised £2500 so far for the FightforSight research fund into GCA (earmarked for PMRGCAuk) and this will be doubled by FightforSight. So it's worth £5000. Result!
