The Dave Owens and Frank Goodall Memorial Fund sponsored walk is an annual challenge walk to raise funds for our nominated charities in support of cancer research, prevention, and treatment. The sponsored walk was originated by Gerard Mitchell who decided to raise funds to support cancer charities following the death of two of his close friends.
Originally a challenge walk across the three peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside, and Ingleborough in the Yorkshire Dales, we now organise a highly popular two distance walk around the beautiful countryside and villages of the Chatsworth Area in Derbyshire. See other pages in this site for details of the our most recent walk, histories of previous walks, photographs and all accounts of the funds raised so far.
