It is now the turn of Chesterfield accredited police station representative Rob Lowe to commit to a challenge for a good cause.

The Thames Path Challenge

On Saturday 9 September 2017 he will be taking on the Thames Path Challenge.  Being confident (or just foolhardy) he has opted for the 100km option.  This route of just over 62 miles follows the River Thames between Putney Bridge and Henley.

Rob understands that the walk can take anywhere between 20 – 33 hours to complete.  He’ll be starting around 9am and walking all day and all night with the odd pit stop along the way.  Rob has set a targe  to complete the route within 24 hours.

Walking for Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity

Rob’s chosen charity is the Weston Park Cancer Hospital in Sheffield.  A couple of years ago Rob’s aunt and uncle, who are twins, were both diagnosed with different forms of cancer within a few months of each other.

“Giving something back”

Rob says of his motivation “I suppose this is my way of giving something back to them, and that’s why I’m doing it.  I also know others who West Park have looked after, and I’d much rather do it for a local charity because whilst you always hope family never need them, it’s nice to know they’re there if they do.”

The walk will be self-funded which means that Rob has paid the cost of the challenge himself.  The charity will not be contributing anything towards the walk and  therefore, every penny of the sponsorship will go to Weston Park.
