Tour de Walkshire 2021

My Activity Tracking


My target 23 mi

I’m taking part in Tour de Walkshire this year to help more people survive cancer in Yorkshire.

Every week in Yorkshire nearly 600 people are told they have cancer. Yorkshire Cancer Research is an independent cancer charity funding pioneering research to prevent, diagnose and treat this condition.

This May they’ve teamed up with Welcome to Yorkshire for Tour de Walkshire. I’ve chosen my distance and will be walking to raise money for this vital cause. 

Please support my efforts and help more people in Yorkshire survive cancer.  

I am not sure that I have ever walked 40 miles in a month  and looking forward to spending some time with the Welcome to Yorkshire team starting on Sunday 9th!
