We Walk for Yorkshire 2024

This May I'm joining people across Yorkshire who are coming together to walk 31,000 miles to raise money for vital research which will help save lives in Yorkshire.

31,000 is the number of people who are diagnosed with cancer every year in Yorkshire.

People are more likely to be diagnosed with cancer in Yorkshire than in most other parts of England and, tragically, too many people die. Yorkshire Cancer Research exists to change this. With the help of people across the region, the charity funds vital research and pioneers innovative new services for people with cancer.

Every step counts, and every pound I am able to raise will help save lives in Yorkshire.

My Updates

Day 12 - A flat mile on Dallowgill Moor

Monday 13th May
So grateful for my family and friends spurring me on, all college girl friends from way back when and so lovely to see them all again.

Day 7 - exactly a mile there and back

Tuesday 7th May
A lovely evening stroll accompanied by my daughter who is home for the week for her birthday.

Day 3, 4, 5

Monday 6th May
After a slow start, having had a Covid booster in the same week as a Zometa infusion (note to self not to do that again!), I have some making up to do!  I have done 1 mile over the whole 3 days but hopefully back on track soon.  I am going to do this!

Day 2 Another Day, another mile

Thursday 2nd May
A little longer than yesterday's time as there was a Yorkshire hill involved!  But I am going to do this.  New meds should sort this post infusion stiffness out soon.  Please sponsor me to hit the £1K target, I might be doing the 4 minute mile by then!  For every £50 received, someone here in Yorkshire will benefit greatly.  31,000 in Yorkshire are diagnosed with Cancer every year. Last year I was one of them.  I didn't think it would be me. I hope it will never be you.  I am so fortunate to have the services and support of Yorkshire Cancer Research on my doorstep.  Please donate if you can.  Huge thanks Kate x

Day 1

Wednesday 1st May
OK, so it took my 45 minutes to walk a mile, but trust me, this is progress!  I used to walk up to this view in 10mins and I aim to do that again!  I fought the cancer and I'm not giving up any time soon!  A lovely afternoon view looking up Nidderdale towards Gouthwaite.

Thank you to my Sponsors
