Rachel's 500k Walk

Hi, I'm Rachel and recently I joined in with a challenge to support a local charity, I enjoyed it so much that I am now going to walk 500k in the next 12 weeks. 
Please watch the film to understand the importance of this Charity. 

The charity is Action for Family Carers, they support Unpaid Family Carers including Young Carers. 
Did you know that 1 in 7 secondary school aged children is a Young Carer, that means that they care for a Family member with long term illness, disability, mental health condition or drug/alcohol addiction.  
Some Young Carers provide more than 40 hours of care a week.  Can you imagine what life must be like to care for someone while trying to deal with school, hormones, friend issues etc 
Action for Family Carers provide one to one support, group support and respite for these youngsters, but they need funds to keep providing and expanding these services.

I aim to walk 500 k over the next 12 weeks come rain or shine. 
I want to raise £1000 to help this good cause. Punch Construction have started the ball rolling  by sponsoring me and supplying me with a high vis to keep me safe. 

Thank you.
