Walking 400km in Spain for Leukemia

 Easter Sunday Gregory at 72 years is commencing his audacious 20-day trek from the stunning 1400s Gothic Cathedral in Leon Spain to Finisterre (once called the end of the world).  During this 400km walk and carrying a backpack, Gregory will cross two mountain passes, attend to foot blisters and old injuries which surface in long walks, visit small villages for lodging, pray in old churches for the sick, enjoy local food and wine, visit Templer Knights castles,  meet incredible Pilgrims from various countries, pass through the world-renowned city of Santiago de Compostela where St James is buried and then onto the rugged coast of Spain.
Don is an old mate and has been suffering from Leukemia for several years. Donny was an elite champion footballer in the 60s and 70s and was selected for the Team of the Century. Courageous and fearless on the field, he was unstoppable and played at the top level winning every award imaginable. He is now on a mission to overcome Leukemia. My walk is for all brave sufferers of Cancer. (All funds raised go directly to Leukemia Foundation.)
In the last 15 years, Gregory through personal donations and campaigns has raised almost $65,000 for charities. 
Previous adventures, Spain, Portuguese and French Caminos, St Olav Way Norway, Kumano Kodo Buddhist trail Japan, Jesus Trail Israel, Himalayas India.
