‘Sky Sports’ Dave Clark undertook the biggest physical challenge of his life with a 200 mile coast-to-coast walk in September 2016 to raise funds for Parkinson’s UK, the PDC’s official charity.
Sky Sports presenter Clark is a proud supporter of Parkinson’s UK, having been diagnosed himself with Parkinson’s five years ago. He is an ambassador for the charity and has other walks and events planned to raise awareness and funds for research.
To coincide with Parkinson’s UK’s partnership with the PDC, Clark lead a special charity two-week walk in September as he traversed England from St Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hood’s Bay in his native Yorkshire.
The 200-mile walk began on September 11 and crossed the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North Yorkshire Moors before concluding 13 days later.
PDPA Chairman Peter Manley presents Dave Clark with a cheque for £2,000 as a donation from the association on behalf of its members in support of Parkinson’s UK at the start of the walk.
