Botham announces another charity walk

Written by: Staff

London, Apr 27 (UNI) Ian Botham is never shy of walking that extra mile for a mission and the former allrounder today announced his 11th such venture, this time to champion the cause of the cancer-stricken youngsters.

And according to Beefy, as the former captain is known to his awe-struck admirers, Andrew Flintoff will also be part of the walk in October, as will be his friends of rugby and the world of showbiz.

During the course of the walk, Botham will spend nine days walking through Britain's main citites -- including Belfast, Glasgow, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool and Cardiff -- raising fund for the Leukaemia Research and the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Botham has trekked 6,500 miles and raised more than eight million pound during those walks. His series of charity walks began in 1985 from John O'Groats to Lands End and then he followed in Hannibal's footsteps by walking across the Alps with a herd of elephants.
