Despite a late change of date 40 walkers completed the 16 mile walk between Belle View before the Sky TV game between Leeds and Wakefield.
In high spirits all the walkers completed their task and were joined by members of Leon Walkers close family. A special presentation was made by Wakefield legend Neil Fox and Sky favorite Mike ‘Stevo’ Stevenson. The walkers also enjoyed a lap of honor at half-time on the pitch. A fun day followed at the Sports Bar on Leeds Headrow on the following Sunday with further funds raised.
Co-organizers Danny Frank and Ash Johnson were delighted and are optimistic £4000 will be raised for the Benevolent Fund. “We are planning things for next year, a great time was enjoyed by all and we are pleased with the monies raised by ordinary spectators” they added.
