Radley Troy takes on epic fundraising trek

Radley is raising funds for charity by walking from Mexico to Canada

OE news

Radley Troy (Wargrave 2008-13) has embarked on an epic trek along the Pacific Crest Trail, walking from the Mexican border with California to the Canadian border in northern Washington state.

The 2,650-mile walk will take five months, and Radley is doing it entirely self-supported, carrying all of the equipment that he will need to camp and survive along the route, periodically passing through or dropping into towns to resupply on food and fuel.

He is doing this to raise funds for the Charlie Watkins Foundation (CWF), whose primary focus is to assist young people in overcoming their challenges and to improve their mental health. Charlie, who sadly lost his life in 2017, was a university friend of Radley's. Radley said: 'This is an idea that has been forming in my mind for some time and so whilst it is something that I truly want to do it also represents a fantastic opportunity to raise support and awareness for the CWF, a cause close to my heart.'
