Starting on Monday 1st June Harlequins Chief Executive, Mark Evans, will be attempting to walk 150 miles around the entire London Loop over six days, to raise money for the award-winning London children's charity Friends United Network (FUN).
FUN is a charity and voluntary organisation set up in 1983 to provide long-term, one-to-one friendship and support to children in need (aged 5 - 16 on referral) and growing up in socially isolated, lone-parent families.
The walk begins at Erith, on the South Bank of the Thames and ends at Purfleet on the North. The distance of the route will equate to walking a marathon a day for six days.
There are two ways that you can get involved:
1. Join in and walk all or part of the Loop with Mark. (Sections from eight miles.)
Please visit www.friendsunitednetwork.org.uk to view a summary of the route. Then indicate the section(s) you would like to walk and send in your registration form, via email, post or fax. Details are available on the website.
Once you have registered you can then start collecting sponsorships, FUN can help you to set up an online Justgiving page.
2. Sponsor Mark for his tremendous effort by making a donation at www.justgiving.com/markevansloop
