About Phil

My main reason for taking part in Hairy Hikers challenges is to support the worthwhile causes that we raise money for, in particular the Cancer charities that do all they can to help people with this disease, which has claimed the lives of close relatives of my friends. And, I enjoy the adventure and memorable experience without having to do something really scary - like a bungee jump or skydive which I could never do. I also like walking.
