Bryson Line 2019 Charitable Walk Announced
More on the amazing charitable work by Americans in the UK
For 2019, The Bryson Line charitable work continues with The Bryson Line Challenge, a 15 mile walk within travel distance from London which takes place on Saturday June 8, 2019. Americans across the UK (and Brits!) are invited to come together for the walk which aims to raise funds for the continued good work of The Bryson Line, whilst also allowing walkers to raise funds for a charity of their choice. Alex Eichhorn Managing Partner of specialist US/UK wealth management firm Tanager Wealth Management, and one of the organisers behind the new Bryson Line Fund, explained "We will ask for a £20 donation to the Bryson Line Fund and then encourage walkers to donate a minimum £100 to a charity of their choice. Our message is that we want to promote the health benefits of walking and encourage Americans to give back to the UK in the form of charitable donations."
The announcement came as walkers from The Bryson Line, including Kate Hedges and Bill Bryson, visited Royal Brompton Hospital in London to see the new catheter laboratory that was helped by the Bryson Line's charitable fundraising. The hospital's Charity CEO, Gill Raikes MBE, thanked the walkers and donors to the Bryson Line, whilst Mr Bryson thanked the Bryson Line team for organizing a wonderful walk last year and pledged his 100% support for future fundraising efforts.
