EMLEY couple Jim and Pat Ainsworth have raised £65,000 for charity over the past 10 years
Mr and Mrs Ainsworth, both 58, started fundraising in 1994 when they ran the London Marathon.
They heard that Dewsbury District Hospital was running its Breath of Life Appeal to provide incubators for babies - so they decided to run for the charity.
The couple raised £4,300.
Every year since then they have run either the New York or London marathons as well as completing a charity trek.
Five years ago they trekked through the Himalayas followed by adventures on the Great Wall of China and in Peru.
In 2003 they trekked the Able Tasman Walk in New Zealand to raise money for The Children's Society.
They were joined on the trek by Linda Robson, star of TV show Birds of a Feather.
This year they completed a 44-mile trek in Japan.
It involved them climbing 12,389ft Mount Fuji and five smaller peaks.
They raised £6,000 for cerebral palsy charity Scope.
Mr Ainsworth said: "We had a typhoon, a monsoon and an earthquake - I'll never complain about British weather again!"
The couple have no children, but put the proceeds from their efforts towards different children's charities.
Mr Ainsworth said: "We try and do it for children, although we have done two events for Cancer Research UK as my sister-in-law died of cancer.
"We try to help less well-known charities who don't get Lottery grants and things like that.
"We also just do it to keep fit really."
Mr Ainsworth is a retired motor service manager.
Mrs Ainsworth is education administrator at New Hall Prison in Flockton.
The super-fit couple go running twice a week and visit the gym weekly.
