A FATHER and daughter team are preparing to tackle the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in memory of a much-loved family member.
Steven Croft, 48, and 20-year-old Sarah will be tackling the tough walking test on June 16 to raise money for Heart Research UK.
The charity, founded in 1967, pays for research into heart disease and surgical techniques.
The Kirkheaton duo have taken up the challenge in memory of Sarah's grandmother and Steven's mother-in-law, Barbara Elliston.
Mrs Elliston died a year ago from a heart attack. She was 69.
Steven, a joiner, said: "We saw this challenge and Sarah said it would be a good way of raising money for the charity.
"It's a completely new thing for both of us. But we both keep fit and go to the gym regularly."
Sarah, a student nurse at Huddersfield University, said: "The walk means a great deal to myself and our family after our unexpected loss.
"We would like to raise money and extra awareness about heart disease to prevent other families going through what was a sad time for us."
She and her father face completing a 26-mile walk in 12 hours, together with Sarah's boyfriend, Ben Kneen, 22 and family friend Nick Briggs, of Lascelles Hall.
The foursome will walk from Horton-in-Ribblesdale in North Yorkshire along a route taking in the summits of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough.
The total ascent will be 1,500 metres.
