A welcome break in the rain meant that all but a few of the 130 people taking part in the Tees Valley Spinal Support Group’s first ever fun walk on Sunday (17 July) got round the 5k route without being soaked. Ten-year-old Shannon Hetherington from Peterlee was the first young person to complete the course which was from Durham University’s Queen’s campus to the riverside in Stockton past the Infinity Bridge to the Tees barrage and back to the university.
She was very excited to be the first across the line and got medal and a special well done handshake from the charity’s mascot Verti.
Walk organiser Linda Botterill said: “After months of planning it was great to see so many people doing the walk. The rain held off for a couple of hours so most people got round without having to get an umbrella out.
“We were thrilled to have Dr Nariv Shah from Princeton Brain and Spine Care in New Jersey on our walk. Last year we were invited to Princeton to do their walk and it was lovely to forge our transatlantic link this year. Patients here and across the water will benefit from this partnership and we’re very excited about what the future will bring.”
Nirav Shah said: “We’ve been made very welcome and already feel like part of the family. It was amazing on Saturday to attend the spinal support group and hear some powerful stories of patients who’ve been through back and neck surgery.
“And today we’ve seen people who’ve had back and neck operations at the spinal unit at the University Hospital of North Tees completing the walk. Many of these people had been written off and told there was nothing that could be done for them. It’s fantastic.”
