On the 14th of October 2017 Steve Wright is aiming at completing a 26 mile walk from Church Stretton to Shawbury via Lawley Hill to raise funds for MDS Patient Support Group.
He is doing it in memory of his late Father in law Terry who would have celebrated his 70th birthday on the same weekend.
Steve says in his Virgin Money Giving Page
Terry had a passion for walking, and prior to being diagnosed with MDS in October 2015 he was steadily ticking off the Scottish Munros. Lawley was one of his regular local walks and I therefore felt this would be a fitting way to raise money for a fantastic charity.
The charity rely solely on donations from fundraising and receive no other support or assistance from governments or trusts, so your help would be gratefully received. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
We are enormously grateful for any donations, big or small. Many thanks to Steve and his sponsors for thinking of us.
All the money raised will help us to support more patients and their families, and ensure they receive the attention and information they need during those particularly difficult times – straight after diagnosis, at treatment changes, time of transplant or progression of the condition.
