Step Out For Yorkshire

I’m stepping out for Yorkshire Cancer Research this May. The challenge I have set myself is Dash the Dales, the equivalent of 100 miles, and it's all to raise money for life-saving cancer research in Yorkshire.

My Activity Tracking


My target 100 mi

I’m stepping out this May to show my support for people affected by cancer in Yorkshire.

1 in 2 people will experience cancer in their lifetime. This means many of us have or will have first hand experience of a cancer diagnosis personally or amongst our loved ones.

I have been a cancer researcher since 2001, delivering studies to try and understand and improve the experiences and outcomes of people living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis. I am very grateful to have been involved with projects supported by Yorkshire Cancer Research who are an independent cancer charity funding pioneering research to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer in the region.

I will be taking on a walking challenge throughout May to raise money for Yorkshire Cancer Research along with my teammates from the University of Leeds Bowel Cancer Team.

Please support our efforts and help more people in Yorkshire receive the best treatments and live well beyond a cancer diagnosis.
