An inspiring message to Gary Hicks (Chair) and us all from Duncan Galbraith the founder of World Walking

Dear Gary

There are not many cardiac rehabilitation groups that will be able to say they travelled from the valley of the cardiac ward to the top of the world. What inspiration your group will give others. I am so looking forward to cheering your group all the way to the finish.

Below is an extract from her letter to us dated 3 May 2012.
