Guy’s father, Mike Francis, who is not normally know for enjoying outside activities,  took on a massive personal challenge when he signed up for the inaugural Jane Tomlinson Walk, choosing to do the 14 mile / half marathon route starting in Settle in the Yorkshire Dales. He was accompanied by Lucinda - Guy’s sister, as well as her husband Matt and for part of the route by Guy’s Mum Ros.

Unfortunately it rained just as the walk began with a steep uphill climb over rocky and muddy surfaces and although it was drier later Mike really struggled and was ready to give up at the lunch stop in Malham.  Remembering Guy’s determination, Mike managed to continue, scaled the 418 steps at Malham Tarn and was pleased to finally complete the distance in just under 7 hours.

It really was a personal achievement and Mike was most grateful to all who kindly sponsored him in  order that research can be continued so that others do not suffer the way Guy had with the horrors of bone cancer.
