Honda Team Race to the Stones and raise vital funds

Seven employees of Honda Swindon took part in the gruelling Race to the Stones event on 16th and 17th July in aid of the Radiotherapy Appeal.  

Chris Shears, Jim Day, Fergal McGrath, Karen Evans, Derek Walton, Yukimi Pinhey and Kyoko Mizutani all completed the 100k challenge which followed the Ridgeway and finished at Avebury. 

Chris said after the event "The inspiration for this type of event came from Kyoko and it did generate a lot of interest.  The Race to the Stones attracted us as it was a 2-day event, which we judged would be 'easier' ;what a misjudgement! 

On Saturday we walked from 8:45 in the morning to 8:15pm, and on Sunday 7am to 6pm - so a lot of aching muscles, blisters, and mental anguish! Nonetheless, the achievement and relief of crossing the finishing line whilst supporting a worthy cause, made it all worthwhile."

In total the team raised more than £1011 for the Radiotherapy Appeal.
