Macmillan Cancer Support Charity Efforts Higher in the RegionA York charity worker’s work inspired her husband so much that he climbed mountains and ran miles to raise £1,115 to support her Macmillan Cancer Support charity.

Mike Lupton, husband of York charity worker Ruhi, is now trying to put his best efforts in encouraging maximum people to follow his footsteps in order to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support by climbing the Yorkshire Three Peaks.

In context to same, Mike Lupton said: “Macmillan are just a brilliant charity. The way they use their resources, constantly change to keep up with current trends and make sure that they utilize money effectively is something to be proud of. It makes you want to do something to raise money for them”.

Ruhi is working at the charity’s York office. Her husband Mike took part in last year’s Macmillans’ Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, in which walkers had to climb more than 1,600 metres in 23 miles thereby trekking up Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. Though Mike marked his completion of journey in eight hours and 57 minutes but others were still walking till late midnight.

This year’s challenge is on July 9 and registration for same is now open. Mike completed the York 10K race in 2009 along with the Great North Run. Chances are higher that he will be back on the start line for the York race in July as well.
