Story

July 2016 the world lost a very special adventurer..... my husband Oliver Collinge. September 15th 2015 Ollie was diagnosed with a very rare and agressive form of Sarcoma Cancer, titled Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumour. Due to the lack of obvious symptoms and clear fit bill of health, Ollie was only diagnosed once the cancer was Stage IV, secondary and terminal.

Whilst his illness has devstasted both his loved ones and his local community it has inspired me and a bunch of friends to try to raise some money to help research this terminal illness and find a cure to stop the loss of others in such a short space of time.

Whilst Ollie wouldn't have run the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, it's a personal challenge of mine and he was always up for an adventure particularly around the Yorkshire Dales as long as it included a stop off at some of his favourite pubs! Please dig deep and support my friends and I as we aim to run the Yorkshire 3 Peaks on Saturday 1st April 2017

Ollies Adventure group contains - Jessica Collinge, Matthew Oddy, Wendy Walker, Lynsey Clarke, Michael Brock, Chris Bingham, Lauren Laprell, Nick Horsfall, Max Lopez, Jez Cosway, Richard Ingram, Matt Lamper and anyone else who wishes to help support, run, provide transport or motivation along the way!
