In July, Henry Moody will walk 200 miles to raise money for Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope. The 13-year old St. Columba’s College student is undertaking the challenging Coast to Coast walk between St. Bees and Robin Hood’s Bay, with only his mother for company. Together they will walk 200 miles over twelve days – with some days being more than 24 miles long.
Henry decided to undertake the fundraising challenge after listening to a talk that Sarah and Isabelle from ELoH held at his school in April. He was very moved by the situation of child amputees in Liberia and Sierra Leone and wanted to contribute to ELoH’s mission to support them so they can walk, play and go to school again. Having previously done a few shorter walks, he decided to challenge himself and walk 200 miles to raise money to support child amputees in ELoH’s projects.
This is an impressive fundraising initiative and a wonderful example of how young people in the UK can help children and young people in less developed countries. If you want to support Henry’s walk, visit his fundraising page today: https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/moodycoasttocoast.
Good luck Henry!
