Join the sponsored York ‘Palathon’ and help raise money for the city’s food banks

York man John Bibby is urging everyone to join the York Palathon.

The idea is to walk a mile per day, for 26 days, starting on 1 April and finishing on 27 April. So then you will have walked a marathon.

John from Heworth will be hobbling round his garden 100 times per day, starting at 11am on April 1st.

He is currently waiting for two new hips and says the Palathon will keep him fit.

John is encouraging others to join in – while keeping your social distance of course:

And he would like help with things like setting up a website, arranging an optional Zoom meeting for participants, and liaising re donations.

Please email John if you can help: [email protected]
