21 Bridges 2015 for The Jimmy Mizen Foundation

posted in: News | 0

21 BRIDGES 2015

Saturday 4th July | Richmond to Tower Bridge

The event began back in 2013 as a way of marking what would have been Jimmy’s 21st Birthday – it also just so happens that the walk crosses 21 Bridges (we cross Tower Bridge twice) and the route is a little over 21 miles!

Challenge yourself this year – be part of 21 BRIDGES and walk #forjimmy to help keep young people safer.

Walking from Richmond to Tower Bridge for The Jimmy Mizen Foundation we will weave along the River Thames, across London’s iconic Bridges and through the centre of the Capital.

Last year we raised over £15,000 enabling Barry, Margaret and The Foundation to continue to take our message of peace into schools and communities across London and the UK.

… this year our target is £25,000 which means a bigger event, even more wonderful walkers and lots more fun!
