This walk is to commemorate the last walk Mark was able to do with his Dad Chris in November 2015 before he become too unwell. Dr Mark Sims was a Junior Doctor, who set a target to raise £1,000 from his hospital bed, through his JustGiving page, which has since raised a staggering £180,000 for Cancer Research UK.
Mark was incredibly passionate about cancer awareness and educating others about prevention. Mark was very brave when he spoke about his experience with skin cancer. He started a blog which inspired thousands of people all across the UK:
