Mary Neil, an administrator from Castle Douglas, is planning to put her best foot forward for two of her local charities with long-distance walker Karen Churches by participating in the Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Great Walk 2005, in association with ITV’s Britain on the Move.
41-year-old Mary will also be joined by diet and fitness expert Rosemary Conley CBE and leading GP and resident doctor on ITV’s This Morning, Dr Chris Steele.
The Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Great Walk 2005 is a nationwide event designed to raise awareness of the need for healthy eating and a balanced lifestyle. Between 28th April and 18th September 2005 one woman, 38 year old Karen Churches, will walk from John O’Groats to Lands End via a walk from Belfast to Dublin and around the Republic of Ireland, in an effort to encourage the nation to get active. Members of the public can join a series of 10K (6miles) sponsored walking events in towns and cities along the route and raise money for an organisation of their choice.
This brand new initiative aims to get the nation walking in 2005 and raise over £1 million for hundreds of registered charities, accredited school and community projects throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland in the process. Mary is planning to raise funds for both the Kirkcudbright & District Cottage Hospital and the Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue, by walking over 100km around South West Scotland in May 2005.
