When his dear Rebecca Zammit Lupi lost the battle to cancer, Tommy Wallbank, only 15, decided to collect money for cancer patients.
All in the memory of his dear friend.
His idea was to run a kilometre for every €5 donation made aiming to collect €500 and run 100 kms.
However as the fund starting rolling he soon realised that he collected ten times the donations expected and also the number of kms he had to run.
To date he has collected €7,000 which means Wallbank has to run around 1,000 kms, basically the length of the entire Sicilian coast.
Wallbank is hoping to do it in less than six months.
He added that Puttinu Cares is a great cause and urges people to keep donating because it makes a difference.
