A Thousand Mile Walk

Some humans are just really inspiring!

Here’s one : Tom Goodwin. A walker, a writer and… a waker.

I've known him for two years now, and I can confidently say he is one of the most inspiring soul I've ever met. Not about the fact that he is particularly successful, or famous...

But just because he is. He moves... He lives. You might see him walk today, but your chance to run into him are much higher if you wander around marathons! That philosophy - to be on a constant run - totally embody what we are trying to do here : keep life in motion.

Starting on the 21st August, I am attempting to walk 1000 miles from Land's End to John O'Groats for Kidney Research UK.

[…] of their funding over the last 18 months, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

As someone born with 4 kidneys, a condition that occurs some in fewer than 1 in 10,000 people, I am challenging myself to raise £10,000 in support of lifesaving research for over 3 million people diagnosed with chronic kidney disease each year in the UK - so that many others can benefit from the excellent NHS care I received at 9 months old.

Share my journey at KidneyTom.com or donate here to bring me another step closer to the finish line!

Thank you for your support,


Donate to his fundraising on Kidney Research
