ONE-LEGGED endurance athlete Chris Moon will be walking the length of Britain to raise £1m for charity.
Chris lost an arm and a leg when he was blown up by a landmine in Mozambique in 1995.
He will be passing through Huddersfield and Dewsbury during his great effort in June.
The former Army officer will cover 52 miles a day and the 1,300-mile walk should take him just over three weeks.
The cash raised will go to the Leonard Cheshire disability charity.
Chris will be setting off from John o' Groats on Saturday, June 5, arriving in Dewsbury on Thursday the 17th.
His route will take him through Batley and Huddersfield, before he turns towards Oldham and Manchester on his way to Land's End.
Chris was a volunteer at a centre for the homeless before joining the Army. He then worked for a charity specialising in mine clearance, but was blown up.
He has since competed in dozens of races. In 1997 he finished the 150-mile Great Sahara Run, one of the toughest races on Earth.
There are still places available to walk with Chris on each part of the journey.
