Jockey treks across 3 islands for charity

UK-Japan News July 2017

Richard Dunwoody MBE, the two-time Grand National winner, has completed a 3,219km trek across Japan, Horse & Hound reported on 6 June.

By walking across three of the country’s main islands, Dunwoody raised more than £14,000 for the cancer charity Sarcoma UK. He was moved to support the charity because his 21-year-old nephew suffers from the disease.

“It has been an incredible and, at times, gruelling experience”, said Dunwoody. “It has also been a humbling experience and I will never forget the kindness and generosity of the Japanese”.
