Tour de Walkshire 2021

My Activity Tracking


My target 158 mi

Walking the distance of the Wolds Way & return -158 miles -to raise some money for Yorkshire Cancer Research

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 the Tour de Walkshire. I’ve chosen a distance of 158 miles to walk in the month ,which is twice the distance of the Wolds Way 79 miles from the Humber Bridge to Filey Brigg & back ,to raise money for this vital cause . Please support my efforts to help more people in Yorkshire survive cancer.

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2019 & after treatment at the wonderful Castle Hill Hospital in Cottingham I am now in remission . I would like to give something back & at the same time promote the Wolds Landscape in East Yorkshire .Yorkshire Cancer Research is a fantastic charity helping to fight this devastating disease.
