This is a shout out to anyone that either knows Tony, or have heard his story, and would like to do something good for him and his family…
I’m Scott and went to school with Mr Conway. A few months ago I got chatting with a couple of old mates and we decided we wanted to something to recognise his struggle with ALS. We want him to know we care and in the process raise awareness and of course some money! That’s when we came up with The Conway 100km Challenge.
This is the ultimate endurance walk. 24 hour continuous challenge from London to Brighton (100km/62 miles) on the 23rd-24th May 2015. This is no walk in the park (see what I did there!) obviously but we thought it provided a stern test whilst not putting too people off taking part. We want to encourage as many people as possible to join in!
Awareness of ALS has gone through the roof recently with the Ice Bucket Challenge and as a result official charities have benefited massively. What we want to do here though is raise money directly for Tony and his family. In order to do that we have set ourselves up as a self-funded group with a GoFundMe account to collect donations (further details below).
You’ll be pleased to know though that the walk itself is part of a wider, very well organised event, with a few thousand people joining us. Therefore when the blisters kick in (and trust me they will) there’ll be professionals on hand to sort you out!
