Two Directors of Sussex based fabricator Whiteline, Steve Milham and Jim Corby successfully completed the 100km London2Brighton Challenge on May 25. Covering the full distance from Richmond Park to the finishing straight at Brighton racecourse in a time of 28 and a half hours, the intrepid pair have so far raised over £10,000 for the NSPCC and “Balls To Cancer”, their chosen charities.
Their progress has become the stuff of legend, from a warm up with Mr Motivator that saw them set off at a blistering pace, through their encounters with fellow participants, mud, walking through the night, the ‘Everest-like’ South Downs and the inevitable resultant dreadful blisters and soreness, to a welcome lager or three at the finish.
“Jim and I are recovering from the physical effects of the walk but we both want to thank everyone from the Industry who sponsored, supported, helped and cajoled us to complete this epic challenge. Our charities will be the beneficiaries of over £10k which is great, but the positive effects of events such as this on us, our families and friends can’t be overstated” said Whiteline MD Steve Milham.
It’s still not too late to add your sponsorship to the valiant pair. Visit www.justgiving.com and find Steve and Jim’s pages or text ‘SPMI48 £10’ or ‘JCLB60 £10’ to 70070.
