Bilateral BHR patient David House completes 50k walk for Dimbleby Cancer Care

In June 2015, a team from The McMinn Centre walked 50 kilometres around London and raised over £7750 for Dimbleby Cancer Care. Click here to read the blog.

The walk has now become an annual fundraising event for Dimbleby Cancer Care. This summer one of our patients took on the challenge. David House had bilateral Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) surgery with Mr McMinn several years ago, his left hip resurfaced in 2001 and his right hip in 2005. As the walk was such a tough challenge for the McMinn Centre team last year, we decided that this year we’d instead contact our patients to see if anyone was up for the challenge. David responded and was eager to take on the walk, seeing it as a personal challenge and a chance to raise money for a worthy cause.

The 50k route was slightly different this year but still took in the sights of the capital and went through the night.

We are delighted to report that David competed the endurance walk with “no problems” in just under 12 hours! Huge congratulations to David for this achievement from everyone at The McMinn Centre. See the gallery below of David taking part in the walk:

At the time of writing, David has raised an amazing £2725 for Dimbleby Cancer Care! This is a fantastic amount raised for a brilliant cause. If you would like to donate to David’s page, please visit:
