Tom Walks the Walk for Prostate Cancer Support

Tom Read is Macclesfield born and bred and he loves nothing better than being in the great outdoors.

Tom is currently teaching at Westwood in Leek. He has also created a website of walks that you can do from your doorstep in and around Macc.

Lockdown Walks are designed to help people to stay local and not travel to those popular hotspots in the Peak District.

Tom was recently contacted by a friend who has suffered with cancer. He wanted Tom to come up with a number of walks where he could achieve 11000 steps. During the conversation Tom discovered his friend had suffered with prostate cancer and was undertaking these walks as a fundraising challenge.

Tom decided to investigate it and to do the same.

Prostate Cancer UK’s initiative ‘March the Month’ encourages participants to walk 11000 steps per day. The eleven thousand number is vitally important as it represents the number of dads, partners, grandads, sons, brothers, uncles and mates who die from prostate cancer every year.
