Published on September 12, 2017

NORTHERN PENINSULA, NL – Guy Poole is hitting the roads once again this September to find a cure for diabetes.

Liz’s Walk will take place along the branch roads of the Northern Peninsula from Sept. 16-25.

Poole has been walking across Newfoundland and Labrador over the past 12 years in memory of his late wife, Liz.

The determined 74-year-old has managed to raise over $140,000, travelling some 2,800 kilometres in the process.
