Leicestershire Round Walk in Memory Ketan Radia


Submitted by Mark Smith

From March 27th to 31st 2019, over 100 walkers were blessed with fantastic weather on a 102 mile walk around Leicestershire known as the Leicestershire Round.  The walk was arranged by Mark Smith and his sister Mary-Anne Johnson to raise funds for three charities remembering their brother Steven and particularly including CRY in honour of Mark’s work colleague Ketan Radia. Nine walkers undertook the full 102 miles challenge with others joining for either a day or a smaller section of the walk on their own personal challenge. The walk has raised over £26,000 for the three charities (with a 1/3 being raised for CRY) as well as raising awareness from television and radio interest. Facebook Page
