A Walk for Life

An hour ago, my brother Kevin who is 50 set out on a 50 mile walk from Hull City’s KC Stadium to Eland Road Stadium in Leeds to raise money for Brain Tumour Research and Support (BTRS) across Yorkshire.

Six years ago, my wife and I lost our daughter (Kev's niece) Samantha to a brain tumour. Doctors know little more about brain tumours today than they knew in the 1960s, and BTRS was set up to provide a network of resources to patients and their families across Yorkshire. Formerly known as Andrea's Gift, BTRS also funds pioneering brain tumour research at the Leeds Institute for Molecular Medicine.

Kev is a great Hull City fan and he decided to make the walk from the KC Stadium to Eland Road in Leeds, where BTRS is based. It would be a great encouragement to my brother, who deserves to be given the ‘Nicest Bloke on the Planet’ award, if you would make a donation to BTRS. 

You can donate online or by sending a cheque made out to BTRS to Kevin Moore, 50 East Grove, Hull, East Yorkshire, HU4 6NS.
