Sean Curran recently undertook a huge challenge – walking the 37 miles stretch known as the Downs Link, starting in Guildford and finishing in Shoreham-by-Sea.
But this 37 mile hike was all in a good cause, raising money for The British Heart Foundation. The team completed the walk in just two days, achieving 20 miles on Day One and 17 miles in Day Two.
“We hadn’t really a target figure in mind but we were pleasantly surprised to raise over £2,350 between us,” said Sean.
And of course they were helped along their journey by the Mountain FX polarized sunglasses they were wearing from Polaroid’s sports sunglasses collection. “The glasses were extremely comfortable and as it was mainly a sunny two days, they came in extremely handy to reduce the glare from the pathways,” said Sean.
With memorable stories about multiple blisters and generous pub owners who donated to the cause as the weary hikers stopped for a bite to eat, Sean and his colleagues are delighted with their achievement.
