Mick walks 33 miles every day.
MICK SLATER began a mammoth challenge at the start of the month: a 1,000-mile walk from Marbella to Monaco. On November 1, the entrepreneur took his first confident strides in Marbella.
Mick was aware of the challenge, but he could never have guessed the physical and emotional toll the gruelling walk would take on him.Every day, Mick wakes up and walks an astonishing 33 miles, across roads, mountains and dangerous stretches. But bruised heels, large lorries and precarious conditions won’t stop Mick.
Euro Weekly reported the story and spoke with Mick and his family a few days into his ‘walk to freedom’. By his twentieth day, Mick has amazingly reached Salou in Catalonia. To follow his story every step of the way, follow his Instagram account: mickrslater
Mick is using the opportunity to fundraise for mental health charity Mind, that provides support for millions of people. Mind gives advice and support for anyone experiencing a mental health problem, as well as campaigning for better services and promoting understanding. Mick feels a connection with the charity and previously said to Euro Weekly: “For me, there is a deep connection with the psychological effects of life. People are suffering in silence and aren’t living the life they want or reaching their full potential.”
