Tour de Walkshire 2021

My Activity Tracking


My target 300 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, running or cycling to raise money for this vital cause. Please support my efforts and help more people in Yorkshire survive cancer.

My Updates

Get moving & raise a few quid!

Tuesday 13th Apr

With the Tour de Yorkshire postponed until 2022, Welcome to Yorkshire have teamed up with Yorkshire Cancer Research to bring you the Tour de Walkshire, and I’ve pledged to cover 300miles by the end of May. 

I’m beginning to think I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. I don’t walk or cycle nearly as much as I should, never mind run! But cancer has lurked in the shadows of those I love and writhed through my family enough times to know that however I choose to move, I know I’ll be helping to raise the much needed funds for life-changing research in my beautiful home of Yorkshire. 

So if you can spare a few quid and help me completely annihilate my target, I’d be ever so grateful. Xx
