On Saturday 10th September Pete Sutton, Managing Director of West Sussex based creative marketing agency PMW, completed a daunting 100 kilometre walk in aid of Kent Cancer Trust.
Pete and his son Luke joined a team from Perrys Chartered Accountants to take part in the gruelling 100km Thames Path Challenge.
The annual Thames Path challenge is now in its fifth year and attracts thousands of competitors to walk along England’s most famous river.
Challengers are given a maximum of 33 hours to complete the epic course from Putney to Henley in Berkshire. After a demanding 24 hours of continuous walking the PMW/Perry’s team completed the full 100km!
The team has raised £6,680 so far for Kent Cancer Trust, a charity established in 2004 to help relieve the suffering of cancer patients in the Kent area.
Fundraising for this charity will continue for the rest of 2016 and donations can be made at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/PerrysAccountants
Pete said: “This was one of the toughest challenges of my life. I couldn’t have done it without my incredible team mates from Perry’s and the brilliant support crew who looked after us literally every step of the way and of course my son Luke!
“Well done to everyone who took part. It really was a fantastic experience and we’re delighted to have been part of the Perry’s team, raising such an incredible amount for the charity.”
