6 MILLION STEPS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CHILDHOOD CANCER
The incredible journey of a determined South African to make a difference
Peter Dunn is embarking on a backbreaking journey to raise awareness and funds for CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation SA in the fight against childhood cancer. The hike will take a gruelling six million steps to complete over a five-month period in which Peter will test his abilities to the max to signify the gruelling and unforgiving journey that children with cancer undertake in their fight against the disease. Peter, who lost his mom to cancer and the six-year-old son of very special friends, has a score to settle.
I am planning on hiking The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), which starts at the Mexican border in a town called Campo, California, and traverses the length of the United States of America – through California, Oregon and Washington – ending at Manning Park, British Columbia, Canada.
I am doing this for those special little souls who would really want to be out and about, but just can’t. I hope that every step I take on this trail, will be worth a thousand steps forwards for each of the little warriors fighting the fights of their lives. Join me on my journey to help beat childhood cancer, one step at a time.
To get involved, visit 6 million steps and follow my journey on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. But most of all: support CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation SA by donating and make sure you know what the early warning signs of childhood cancer are.
