In 2007, we came up with a plan for a coast to coast walk to raise money for two hospices either side of the Pennines. This soon became a regular occurrence for us as we started to get a real buzz out of staging these events and supporting some amazing causes. we set a target of raising £100,000 overall. Then our aim was to top the £1 million mark. We achieved that in November 2023. We have no plans to stop there.

We have developed a scalable formula for events that has seen us deliver some massive events with over 1500 participants up and down the country. We have been able to help friends say thank you to some amazing charities that have helped them in their hours of need. 

As well as the money raised and the fantastic causes we have supported, we have made some fantastic friends and created lasting memories. 

As ardent supporters of Leeds United and Liverpool, we can happily say we have been marching on together and have never walked alone.
