MICA Travels are a group of family and friends that are dedicated to raise awareness of Bile duct cancer and sepsis, two illnesses that claim 1000’s of lives each year and are barely known about. I lost my wife; our sons lost their mother and many others lost a dear friend. We as group will be doing a series of endurance activities to raise money for these charities as a lasting memorial to Carol, so that our sudden loss is not in vain.

Lockdown Challenge Day 2

As much as we are going to miss doing these walks together, staying safe is of key importance. But equally these two conditions will not be taking a month break, so neither will we!

As a family we needed to find a way ...

Waterproof, that’s a laugh!

Posted in Our Fundraising Journey by Mike Hall

The rain bashed against the window as I awoke. It was another Saturday, which meant another walk. Oh well it looks like we will be getting wet, at least we can try out our stuff for weatherproofing! As usual, people starting to descend upon the base camp. We are a bunch of 5 with mixed abilities but high hopes and determination. We had chosen to do a 7 mile circular romp along the Stour valley ...
