Rebecca Millington was a friend of Horatio Chapple’s and was with him when a polar bear attacked their camp during their expedition to Svalbard.
This year, on 5th August, it will be 10 years since Horatio lost his life.
Thoughtfully, as a way to remember him and to give herself space and time to feel her own grief and trauma, Rebecca is planning to spend this day doing a big run (or walk) across Dartmoor.
With the day meaning so much to her, she felt it was important to also raise money for Horatio’s Garden. She has now set up her JustGiving page and has also generously committed to matching donations up to a total of £100 in order to encourage people to give as much as they can.
Rebecca is already enormously grateful to anyone who lends their support, whether that be by donating or simply joining her on a training run.
We share her gratitude and would also like to offer a heartfelt thank you to Rebecca for being so considerate in helping Horatio’s vibrant legacy live on.
