Jill Beckingham, Governor Peter Beckingham’s wife, has helped to raise more than $25,000 for charity by walking more than 100km across the Turks and Caicos Islands. Scores of residents, young and old, joined Mrs. Beckingham during her Footsteps4Good walk across five of the country’s six inhabited islands.
And it was all for a great cause as walkers and supporters pledged thousands for their favorite TCI charity while getting fit and having fun in the process.
The walk began in Grand Turk on October 25, then onto South Caicos, Middle and North Caicos, Salt Cay, ending on Providenciales on October 31. On Saturday, November 1, Mrs. Beckingham finished with a major walk and run organized by Provo Road Runners from IGA to Blue Haven in Leeward.
The Museum collected $1,737.00 in donations from the walk! Thank you Mrs. Beckingham!
