On the 22nd July 2016 four female Wigan Warriors season ticket holders from Littleborough Rugby Union Club, will walk the 26.4 miles from their club in the foothills of the Pennines to the DW Stadium in Wigan.
LRUFC Pink Warriors Walkers marathon
The girls will leave LRUFC at 9am on the 22nd July 2016 and plan to get to the DW at about 7pm. This is derby day with Wigan facing rival neighbours St Helens with an expected capacity crowd.

The girls will be welcomed onto the pitch at half time to present Danny Sculthorpe, Trustee of State of Mind and former Wigan player, with a cheque for the money raised.

The girls are all avid rugby fans, following Wigan Warriors at every game and all play for the Pink Warriors at LRUFC at under 18s and Under 15s.

The idea for the walk came from the youngest of the four, Georgia Turner, second row player at under 15s for her club, county and North of England, she wanted to help raise money for State of Mind, the charity her mum Clair Carson, is a Trustee for, as well as a cancer charity in memory of her Great Grandfather.

Her sister, Olivia Turner, and two friends from the club, Olivia Frian and Megan Dickinson, agreed to undertake this challenge with her and they have been training most nights for the last month in order to be able to complete this mammoth task.

The girls, their parents and members of their club at LRUFC have been promoting the challenge via social media and the LRUFC website as well as their own just giving pages and have so far had over £600 pledged in donations, the girls are hoping to increase this as they lead up to the challenge day.

There are two dedicated just giving sites for the two chosen charities:

www.justgiving.com/Clair-Carson1 for State of Mind and www.justgiving.com/Clair-Carson2 for the Steve Prescott Foundation

All at LRUFC, friends and families of the girls involved are very proud of their challenge and hope that everyone can get behind them and support these worthy causes that the girls are working so hard to help.
