Phil Luke and Alison McCarthy will be jetting off Boxing Day to embark on the trek of a lifetime. They will be seeing out the year 2017 and welcoming the New by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Phil and Alison are walking to raise awareness and build funds to support the Boro Walkers choosen local charities.
Every week we complete a 7 mile walk, starting in Middlesbrough Newport Bridge following the South shore of the river tees, under the Tees Flyover, the Stockton Millennium bridge, under the Princess Dianna Bridge and then crossing at the Infinity bridge and returning allow the North Shore, passing all the bridges and the beautiful Tees Barrage.
The Boro Walkers association are proud of our accomplishments and we at HQ would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has once again supported us throughout 2018, four outstanding events this year;
- The Fan Dance
- Borowalkers Charity Football Tournament
- The Whitby To Saltburn walk
- The Great North Run
And as a result we have now been able to support 40 local charities/groups, our total amount raised will be unveiled at our up and coming handover party at the riverside on the 30th of November.
The borowalkers charity shield tournament returns even bigger and better for 2019, the tournament will see 5 teams battle it out for the elusive charity shield ,with a location change for 2019, being held at Thornaby FC.
TEAM SCORPIO among many other local charities received cash gifts from the Boro Walkers association. A great night was had by all and they raised a further £5000 on the raffle. Team Scorpio said.
