Michael Trench's fundraiser Cancer Kids Pilgrimage

Combining my love of walking with my passion for adventure I have decided to walk solo from Canterbury in England through France and over the Great St Bernard pass in Switzerland down to Rome in Italy. This ~2000km walk traces the original “via Francigena” pilgrim’s route that dates all the way back to the Middle Ages. 

I will be walking unaccompanied armed only with a backpack, navigational aids (compass, maps etc) and electronic gear required to record my trip via a blog and photos. Accommodation and meals will be wherever and whatever I can find along the way. Hopefully I will not have to resort to using my tent and limited cooking skills too regularly :-) 

I will of course be covering all of my own costs but I am inviting you to join me by becoming a donor via my “EveryDayHero” link on the Kids With Cancer Foundation website - the charity that I have selected to benefit from all funds raised by this challenge. I urge you to think of kids with cancer and their families and then donate whatever you can reasonably afford. 

Mike has pledged for every dollar donated to his fundraiser he will donate $2.00 himself. Mike's fundraiser has already given an amazing $70,000 to the kids.
We ask everyone to learn more & support Mike through his website: http://cancerkidspilgrimage.tumblr.com/
