Paul Tyson’s Walk of Hope

Update posted by paulty On Aug 08, 2014

So we had a little hiccup this week when Paul suffered from a seizure. It meant a couple of nights in hospital and three days when he couldn't complete his 10,000 step daily target. He's back on track now though and recorded 11079 steps today and hopefully more over the weekend. Thanks for all the ongoing support and encouragement, it's helped to ensure this was just a hiccup rather than a setback.

The treatment we'd like Paul to have is an injection, probably two into Paul's neck, he's then tilted at 45 degrees so the inflammatory medicine can go into his brain. It does remarkable things for some people's speech (and mobility) as you can see in the news report below but then it does very little/nothing for others. Who knows which Paul will be but we need to give it a try.

After Paul's staggering record yesterday we're off out early this morning so the kids can scooter and cycle and Paul can get walking again. I'll get some video of him to post up. 

Thanks all for your support.

As you may/may not have noticed I struggle to find the time to update on Paul Tyson's walking challenge. Apologies for that, but rest assured that every day Paul reaches his target.
So far, that's 11 days, he's walked over 10,000 steps every single day, in fact this week he had one day where he walked over 15,000.
It's a phenomenal achievement given he can't walk anywhere from our front door (we live on a steep hill), it's over 30 degrees every day and the humidity is punishing.
That's incredible, without a doubt, but what's been more incredible has been the support he has had. Thank you, every one of you that has pledged money, sent words of support, song suggestions, done your own money-raising initiative. It's been more than we ever expected, let alone hoped for.
Here's a little more about the treatment we're hoping to get for Paul. It may not work. Your kind donations may be for nothing in all honesty, as it's totally unproven but we're desperate. We have to try. So thank you for supporting our walk of hope.

Finally we have resolved the issue with sponsoring. Paul's surpassed his target of 10000 steps every day so far. Day four today. Thanks for your patience.

Well Paul's off and reached a few thousand steps over his 10,000 target on both day one and two. Apologies to those of you who are trying to sponsor Paul we are having some technical difficulties that I am trying to resolve.
