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 🥊 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...

Event details

A 6 day trek on The Great Wall of China 🇨🇳

Peter and his best mate Colin Jordan (an accomplished Trekker) Completed 90k over some of the most remote parts of The Great Wall of China 🇨🇳 In just 5 days! Raising awareness and essential funds for the Alzheimer's Society to fight Dementia.  One of the Seven Wonders of the World, The Great Wall of China has to be the ultimate building project the world has ever known; constructed by human hands over 2000 years ago, it stretches across this hilly region with long spurs and watch-towers often disappearing into the mists.  The 5 day challenge took Peter and Colin on a scenic route of the Great Wall's most remote locations ending in Beijing.  The challenge was physically demanding but Peter and Colin loved every minute! The fabulous scenery and a first hand fascinating insight into a rich culture and history. Which shared with their supporters via the Facebook and twitter blogs. Inspirational! donate now choosing to gift aid ✅ and let's fight Dementia together!
