Walk 4km a day for children like Tiyamike

The total distance I covered is 148 km - the equivalent of walking from Manchester to Coventry. I raised over £1,500 for WaterAid. I generally walked early in the morning around our village. I took the solitude and quietness as an opportunity to think of those who actually walk to collect water. This was an incentive to be consistent day by day.
