A HUDDERSFIELD woman is to take part in a long-distance walk to raise cash for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Claire Sibald, 23, of Marsh, will tackle the Huddersfield to Oldham section of a national sponsored walk on June 9.
Mrs Sibald, a learning schemes co-ordinator for NHS Professionals in Tingley, near Morley, will be joined on her walk by Karen Churches, the founder of the Kellogg's Cornflakes Great Walk 2005.
Between April 28 and September 18, Karen, 38, will walk from John o'Groats to Land's End - with extra sections in Belfast and Dublin - to encourage the nation to get active.
Along the way, people like Mrs Sibald will be joining Karen for stretches of the walk.
Famous faces involved include fitness expert Rosemary Conley, Dr Chris Steele, GP and resident doctor on ITV's This Morning, Prime Minister Tony Blair and his Eire equivalent the Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern.
All those taking part can raise money for a charity of their choice and Mrs Sibald has chosen the MS Society, because her father was diagnosed with the debilitating disease last year.
She said: "It is an amazing opportunity to raise funds for lots of charities."
Mrs Sibald is urging more Huddersfield people to join the Kellogg's challenge. To take part contact Elizabeth Ayto, of Media Ambitions, on 020 7229 6610 or email Elizabeth@mediaambitions.com
