Help me reach my fundraising goal
At the beginning May I am challenging myself to complete a multi day running adventure in support of Radio Aire's Cash for Kids, a local charity that supports disabled and disadvantaged children and young people across West Yorkshire. My plan is to run from Bridlington in East Yorkshire to Cleckheaton in West Yorkshire over seven days, a distance of around 130miles (depending on whether I get lost or not). The route will take me via Scarborough, Malton, Haxby, York, Selby, Pontefract, Castleford, Rothwell, Leeds and Morley. The challenge will start on May 4th and finish on May 10th which Super Hero Day for Radio Aire's Cash For Kids.
Several of my friends and colleagues from Reeds Rains will also be joining me on stages of the challenge.
Radio Aire's Cash for Kids is a fantastic local charity that responds to the needs of children throughout West Yorkshire so they can live life to the full and realise their individual potential. They support children aged 0-18 who are disabled, disadvantaged or suffering from abuse or neglect. In 2018 they managed to support and help over 52,000 local children and young people but this was only possible by the efforts of their fantastic fundraising team and the generous donations that they receive.
As an added incentive once you've made your donation please predict how many calories you think I’ll burn over the full challenge (130 miles) and for the closest guess I'll donate £50 to a charity of your choice.
Although I am a keen runner with several half and a couple of full marathons under my belt, this is my first attempt at a multi-day event and by far the biggest challenge that I have set myself to date.
Please give generously if you can. I can assure you that any donation you kindly make will help improve the lives of children and young people. I can't thank you enough for your support.
I will do my best to provide regular updates across social media. Now I better back to my training....................................

Thank you all for your generous donations. Don’t forget to let me have your predictions for the total calories buried over the 7 days and for the winning bid I’ll donate £50 to a charity of your choice. Just drop me a message with your guess. As a helping hand on day 1 I did a little over 2000 calories but it was all uphill.
