Brian Brimmell is getting ready to take on the 2,660 mile Pacific Crest Trail hike which will take him from the Mexican border, up the West Coast of the United States and to the Canadian border in a gruelling charity challenge all to raise funds for DonMentia.
Brian, who is from Bessacarr, will set out on his challenge next week, aiming to finish by September 21, raising funds for Donmentia along the way.
And the exhausting trek will be in memory of his wife’s aunt Pat Plant who battled the condition before her death in January this year.
Eileen Harrington of DonMentia said: “As the founder of DonMentia, the local dementia charity supporting Doncaster people affected by dementia, I frequently have people doing sponsored events. However, Brian’s offer was a big surprise.”
Brian is setting off from home on 30 March and will start his walk on April 4.
