Seaside big trek for tot appeal

A 17-mile walk is being planned in aid of six-month-old Anthony Rushe, who has a rare disorder.

A 17-mile walk is being planned in aid of six-month-old Anthony Rushe, who has a rare disorder.

Fifty women will pound the seaside trail to raise money in aid of a tragic tot.

Anthony Rushe, who is six months old, has a rare condition and has been given only six months to live.

Doctors and Anthony’s parents thought he had colic but he was then diagnosed with Krabbe Disorder, which only affects one in 100,000 babies.

The cruel disease means that even though Anthony (pictured above with mum Jenna Bannon and dad Tony Rushe) seems healthy and well now, within months, he will deteriorate – losing the ability to hear, see, swallow and eventually breathe.

Now a hardy group of women are to walk 17 miles from Blackpool Tower to the Pig and Whistle pub in Lea, Preston, close to where his family are from.

They will set off at 5pm on Saturday walking down the Prom, through St Annes, Lytham, Warton and Freckleton.
