The borowalkers started back in September of 2013, when two of the committee Paul Randall and Pete Livingstone decided to raise awareness and some funds for the MS society on behalf of Pete’s partner Sarah, as she suffer’s from the disease.
So from a phone call at the beginning of September 2013 made by Paul to Pete, they decided to walk the length of Hadrian’s wall, 84 miles in two day’s up in the north of England (hexham).
Pete decided to post it on Facebook to try and generate some interest and from the initial phone call from Paul, within ten weeks they had a strong group of thirty guys and managed to raise a massive £12.170.
After recovering the guy’s got together and formed the group now know as The Borowalkers Assocition and from the initial success they now have had numerous fund raising event’s from outdoor extreme challenges to evening fund raising events.
To date ( December 2015) Borowalkers have managed to raise just under £60.000 to which has been distributed to local causes across the teeside area.
With numerous events planned for the coming year ahead with great press coverage from local papers to regional papers the Sunday sun, local radio interviews with even a shout on a national radio five live, we as a group are doing something very positive for the are we live in (teesside), and with your support will continue to do so.
