My target 450 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.

You will forever be in our hearts Dean 💔💔

Week 4☑️

Sunday 30th May
As We come to the end of May and the end of my challenge our family has been devastated by the loss of my cousin Dean to cancer yesterday. 
Dean was 55 years old (my age in two weeks) and taken from us by cancer far too early. 
When I decided to do this challenge it was the passing of both my in-laws and a close friend that gave me the inspiration to raise funds for Yorkshire Cancer Research. 
Loosing someone who I have grown up with, sharing life’s ups and downs ( when our families get together) is so difficult to comprehend why so young?
I will promise you one thing Dean, your passing will inspire me to raise awareness and funds to help families experiencing what our family is dealing with right now. 
Sleep well Dean ( Cuz ) 💔💔

Week 3 ☑️

Week three complete

Sunday 23rd May
That’s the third week of my challenge completed. It’s not been the physical activity that has been difficult this week as my fitness improves. The weather has been disappointing and I have been riding in my winter kit. 
 I have been emotional drained by the painful news that two close family members have been diagnosed with cancer within days of each other. This disease knows no boundaries but with your overwhelming support we can help to change people’s lives with research into it. 
Thank you so much for the donations I have received so far. 

Week 2 ☑️

Sunday 16th May
Our away days will never be the same again without you Pete MOT

Week Two Complete

Sunday 16th May
Yesterday I had a choice, stay at home sitting by the fire with a beer watching Leeds United on TV or go out riding to raise funds for Yorkshire Cancer Research. I chose the latter. The weather forecast was mixed so I knew there was a chance of rain and did it rain? My ride yesterday was roughly the distance between Leeds and Burnley (the team they played) I would have been at this match if supporters were able to travel and on our trip would have been a wonderful man called Peter Jenkinson who sadly passed away recently. Peter didn’t have a choice yesterday but I did. Families living with cancer don’t have a choice. 
My ride yesterday and the second week of my challenge is dedicated to Peter and his family. MOT
Thank you so much for the donations I have received so far.

Week one complete

Saturday 8th May
That’s the first week completed.
Striking a balance between working, home life and fundraising is difficult at times but families dealing with cancer have an even bigger balance to strike with no choice to have a day off from their battle. 
Thank you so much for the support I have received during my first week. 
Take care and stay safe. 
Paul
