All Zoe’s Footsteps – Southport Dad to take on epic 117 mile walk

A dad from Southport, whose daughter has just completed more than two years of treatment for leukaemia, will soon be setting off on an epic 117 mile walk to raise vital funds for CLIC Sargent and Alder Hey Children’s Charity.

All Zoe’s Footsteps – Southport Dad to take on epic 117 mile walk

On 2 April 2018, Phil will begin his six day walk from his home in Southport, walking 25.8 miles on the first day, ending in Preston.

Day two will be Preston to Adlington (16.7m), day three Adlington to Eccles (22.9m), day four Eccles to Knutsford (18.7m), day five is Knutsford to Runcorn (18.9m), and the final day will be a walk of 14 miles through from Runcorn, finishing at Alder Hey Hospital.

Phil Robinson has named the walk ‘All Zoe's footsteps’ as the 117 mile walk represents 117 weeks of treatment for daughter Zoe, his inspiration.
 
Zoe was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in October 2015 at the age of just two-and-a-half.

Following treatment at Alder Hey Children's Hospital, which she completed in February 2018, Zoe has made a full recovery.
 
Phil said: “We are so grateful for the support that was offered to us as a family by CLIC Sargent at the time we needed it most, and the team at Alder Hey have been fantastic throughout Zoe's treatment."

"I hope to be able to give something back and help children, young people and their families who find themselves in a similar situation.”

Thank you

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Engagement Manager Stefanie Underhill said: “We are delighted that Phil has chosen to fundraise for CLIC Sargent and wish him the best of luck for this impressive challenge!

"Today, 11 more children and young people will hear the devastating news that they have cancer. Without fundraisers like Phil, many children and young people would be facing the ordeal of cancer treatment without the support they need.”
