In October 2006 School House OD David Grier (1977) took 98 days to run the entire length of the Great Wall of China in one attempt.
Last week Thursday (05 July), David and his teammate Andrew Stuart, successfully completed a run across the Great Wall of China from East to West - the hardest route to take! It took these incredible men just 79 days to complete the 4031km journey. David has done some remarkable adventures to raise funds for much needed medical causes. He truly embodies the spirit of Bishops by sacrificing so much of himself, for the betterment of others. We are truly inspired by your actions, David! Congratulations and well done, a thousand times!
Please see some more pictures under 'ODs in the news' under 'Photos'.
