A TEENAGE boy is set to walk 100 miles for charity in memory of his grandma.

Paddy Miller will trek from Runcorn to the top of Scafell Pike as part of his Summit to Do fundraiser.

The 16-year-old, from Grangemoor, has organised the challenge in aid of Cancer Research UK.

It comes after he successfully raised more than £4,000 for Halton Haven Hospice last year, when fundraisers walked 80 miles from the town to the summit of Snowdon.

Paddy’s granddad Graham Miller also cycled the 72.4-mile distance and joined his family in walking up the mountain.

This time around, the group plans to walk an extra 20 miles and surpass thousands of pounds raised last year.

The Summit to Do walk will take place over four days from Tuesday, April 12, to Saturday, April 16.

To kick off the expedition, Paddy and his family and friends will walk 25 miles on the first two days.

Then, on the Thursday and Friday, they will cover 20 miles.

On the final day, the group will walk up Scafell Pike in the Lake District – completing their 100-mile journey.

Paddy, a pupil at St Chad’s Catholic and CE High School, said: “Although I will be walking with some of my family members and a few family friends, anyone is welcome to join.

“I am organising the event, looking for the best route, promoting the event and planning how each day will go.

“The cause means a lot to me as we are raising money for Cancer Research UK because my nan sadly passed away from cancer so, we are doing it for her.”
