Josh's epic trek for cancer charity
4:33pm Tuesday 7th August 2012 in News
AN intrepid walker is stepping out to raise money for a leading cancer charity with a gruelling 100 mile trek from his Halesowen home to Aberystwyth.
Tennis coach and teaching assistant Josh Price is gearing up for his first long-distance charity walk with friend Michael Kenyon from Dudley.
The 23-year-old, of Drews Holloway South, has completed distance walks before to places including Ludlow and the Welsh borders, but this is his charity trek.
He was spurred on to do the sponsored event after a friend was diagnosed with the disease and he and Mr Kenyon, aged 23, hope to raise £1,000 for Cancer Research UK.
The pair plan to take three days to complete the walk, carrying their own gear and camping at night.
