Chief Executive Completes Offa’s Dyke Walking Challenge

Interim Chief Executive D’Arcy Myers recently completed his Offa’s Dyke walking challenge in support of The Foundation on Monday 31 May. During the 12 days of the challenge he:

  • Walked 190 miles
  • Completed 402,507 steps
  • Climbed 29,807 feet (Everest is 29,032)
  • Walked through 8 counties and crossed the England/Welsh border over 20 times
  • Passed through 600 stiles or kissing gates
  • Experienced rain, hale, high winds and sunshine in the wettest Welsh May in 160 years!

D’Arcy said:

“I wanted to do the walking challenge to reconnect with nature and as you can see from the photos, it definitely gave me the opportunity to do that!

It also gave me the space and time to reflect on my time so far at the Foundation and how I can be of the best service to help everyone at Percy Hedley during the rest of my time as interim CEO.”
