Starting in mid-June of this year, I intend to spend one year walking round the coast of England and Wales to raise money and awareness around ending cervical cancer (my wife died of this disease). My goal is to end cervical cancer within a generation, by promoting better coverage of HPV vaccination and smear tests. I am a 57 year old English man, currently living in Washington DC. I will cover all of my own costs. I will walk 10-13 miles per day, every day. I will do the walk alone, but will be joined by my three grown children and friends for parts of the trip. I will be raising funds for Cancer Research UK and a small charity in the DC area, called Hope Connections.
I need 3 types of help - choose which you would prefer, or all of them:
1. Building a spreadsheet for each leg of the walk, showing start and end points, using Google maps. Each leg at least 10 miles, not more than 15 miles. No ferry crossings, walk over nearest bridge. Start/finish where possible near habitation. Using coastal paths as much as possible. Starting in Seaford, East Sussex, heading west. Output would be spreadsheet with start point, end point and accompanying map drawn in Google maps, for each leg. Look at the maps in this blog as an example: https://coastalwalker.co.uk/2011/08/29/65-warsash-southampton-to-hythe/
Total distance is around 3,500 miles.
2. Identify possible organizations which might be interested in providing sponsorship for such an endeavour, and prepare outline proposals.
3. Help design website. I have a domain name, but haven't built the website yet.
