Dare to trek: the man who journeyed across Lagos on foot

Charity may begin at home, but it certainly does not end there. Over a six day period from 3 to 8 December, one of our own, Yinka Shorungbe travelled 175 km across Lagos, on foot.

His walk took him from Seme, Nigeria’s border with the Republic of Benin through Badagry, Ojo, Mile 2, Orile, Lagos Island, Lekki, Epe and all the way to the boundary with Ogun State. It was done to raise N100 000 for the Red Cross Society’s Motherless Home in Makoko, Yaba – the orphanage Yinka first visited back in 2009.
