Beefy's Great British Walk 2012

In 1985 only 20% of children survived the most common form of childhood leukaemia, now more than 90% survive this disease. But there are still children and teenagers losing their battle.

Cricket legend and national hero Sir Ian Botham will complete the seventh leg of his 14th charity walk, in support of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. He will be joined by major celebrities and local leukaemia patients.

Sir Ian, who is President of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, says: “I need people to sign up and join me on the walk and help ensure that every child diagnosed with blood cancers including leukaemia and lymphoma survives. I won’t stop until we beat childhood blood cancer, but I can’t do it without you.”

Beefy’s Walk visits 10 towns across the UK in 10 days:
Thursday 12 April - Glasgow (Drumpellier Park)
