On Christmas Eve 2016, Daniel Mullin lost a good friend he had known since childhood.
Daniel observes: "He was an inspirational man, and had an influence on many lives. He was a force for good in the world, and he was a brilliantly creative and talented man, who wrote novels, plays, composed music and translated scripts in several languages."
"His legacy will live on."
Raising money for Cancer Research UK, Daniel is attempting the 'Million in a Month' challenge — one that is usually undertaken in three months. Daniel has chosen February as the greatest challenge, being the shortest month, and with half-term week and the important need to entertain his two young children adding to the difficulty!
The challenge roughly equates to walking an average of 17 Miles per day — approximately 35,000 steps.
"Wish me luck" says Daniel — I'm currently at just over 600,000 steps!
If you'd like to do more than just wish him success, you can add to the sponsorship here.
Cancer Research UK is the world's leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. The charity is fighting cancer on all fronts, finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat it to save more lives. Cancer Research UK is entirely funded by the public.
