Video: Walk in memory of Rugby League's Steve Prescott

A walk is being planned in memory of the popular rugby league player Steve Prescott.

His friends and colleagues are set to trek the length of Great Britain.

Steve took on an incredible number of fundraising charities himself before he died of stomach cancer.

Up until his death he raised thousands of pounds for charity by completing all manner of endurance challenges.

Now, the Walk for Precky will cover 900 miles in 12 days.
