Charity appeals for walkers to join fundraising event along the Leeds Liverpool Canal

A charity, which funds research into the biggest cancer killer of under 40's, is calling on people to join a fundraising walk along the Leeds Liverpool Canal.

The Brain Tumour Research charity is launching the Litherland Walk of Hope for supporters to help join the fight against brain tumours. Annual Walk of Hope events take place nationwide every September, but the Litherland walk, on Saturday, 29 September 2018 will be the 1st of its kind within the north west.

Starting at the Jubilee Pub, Litherland, the route takes walkers along the banks of the canal for 10 miles, circling back to the pub where fundraisers will be able to enjoy 20% off their lunch.

Andrea Pankiw, Community Fundraising Manager at Brain Tumour Research, said:- "Joining us on the Litherland Walk of Hope is a great way to raise money for a great cause. You can bring the whole family with you and enjoy all the beautiful scenery that the route passes through, all whilst raising vital funds. Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 each year than any other cancer, yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease."

The registration fee is ₤10 for individuals and ₤20 for families. All walkers will receive a t-shirt and, upon completing the walk, be awarded with a medal for being part of the charity's fantastic Fighting Force.

The money raised will go towards Brain Tumour Research which is funding dedicated UK Centres of Excellence where scientists are focused on improving outcomes for patients and, ultimately, finding a cure.
