Two veteran cyclists completed a 123-mile ride from Kirkheaton to Skegness in memory of a friend.
Dave Cowgill, 73, of Kirkheaton, and Dave Shelton, 69, of Dewsbury, raised £1,031.21 in tribute to Olive Breary.
She was a much-loved figure cheering on runners from what became known as Olive’s Corner.
It was a big challenge for the cyclists, but one which they were determined to complete.
“It was tough going, especially with the 4am start.” said Mr Shelton, “It was cold and dark when we set out but by the time we made it to Bawtry it flattened out, which made the ride in to Skegness a little easier.”
After paying a visit to the Dalton-based hospice to hand over the cheque, the two men spoke about their late friend. Mr Cowgill said: “She was such a kind person. She would do anything for anyone.
“She was very active and even when she was ill she was hoping to take part in the Barnsley 10k. She even bought a new pair of trainers for it.”
The duo plan to join members of the Stadium Runners at the 10k event in tribute to Olive.
They said: “We are all going to take part in the event in Olive’s memory. We will be sticking together at the back of the field, and Olive’s daughter will be running in her place.”
Kirkwood fundraising manager Marie Peacock said: “It’s an absolutely wonderful achievement and a lovely way to remember their friend Olive. I think they were surprised by just how much they managed to raise.
“The support of local people like the ‘two Daves’ makes a massive difference to the care we can provide here at Kirkwood and we are extremely grateful to them.”
