My target 75 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.

F@@k you cancerSaturday 29th May The Sun was shining and today was a big push to hit my target. A morning bike ride 14 miles in the sunshine and worked hard. My thoughts today were a big thank you to my sponsors that have helped me along the way. My other thought was with my mum who many years ago had breast cancer and was lucky to survive. Sadly she has passed away but I’m sure if she was looking down at me today she’d been very proud that I’m trying to do something to help others. I’ve really enjoyed this challenge and it’s helped me to lose weight and get fit. I also know that I’ve made a contribution to help others. I genuinely hope that I do not have to personally encounter such a dreadful and evil illness. Share
