Peter Flanagan a former professional boxer with a distinguished 6 year career, 32 pro fights and 12 amateur he also played football in his youth for Manchester United. Β An injury in the ring left his eye retina detached ending his career. Β 

Peter is a great friend to many, a loving Husband, Father and Grandfather. He has recently been diagnosed with Dementia Pugilistica a form of Dementia which is a neurodegenerative disease and affects 15 to 20% of Amateur and Professional Boxers, also many footballers and athletes who suffer regular concussions during their career. Peter has frontal lobe chronic traumatic brain damage. Although Dementia Pugilistica is rare there are many variants of Dementia and 1 in 9 people in the UK die of Dementia making it the UK's biggest killer.

Instead of simply waiting to deteriorate Peter as always has come out fighting πŸ₯Š he intends to raise awareness and funds to help future generations beat Dementia! No stranger to raising money for charities in challenges such as completing the New York Marathon, a solo parachute jump and abseiling down the Piccadilly Hotel Manchester. Peter is ready to take on the biggest challenge of his life...

Peter and his best mate Colin Jordan (an accomplished Trekker) are off to The Great Wall of China πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ to take part in a six day Trek! Raising awareness and essential funds for the Alzheimer's Society to fight Dementia.Β

The 6 day challenge takes Peter and Colin on a scenic route of the Great Wall's most remote locations ending in Beijing. Β The challenge is physically demanding but Peter and Colin are looking forward to the fabulous scenery and a first hand fascinating insight into a rich culture and history. Which they will share with their supporters via the Facebook and twitter blogs and using body cams.
