On August 21, the group set off from Carcroft to Doncaster Royal Infirmary on a mission to walk 21 km.
They broke their target and ended up walking 14.82 miles (23 km).
Fundraiser Amy Round, 32, said: âEveryone who participated has been directly or indirectly affected by a miscarriage.
âAt first, we all dropped balloons in the sky for the babies we lost.
âEveryone had their personal moments of reflection before embarking on the long march. “

The team managed to raise Â£ 1,309 for the Miscarriage Association.
âWe want to raise awareness as well as money,â Amy said.
âMiscarriage can be considered a taboo subject.
âBut in my own experience, it helped me to know that other people were going through the same thing as me.
âMiscarriages affect one in four people.
âYou just don’t realize how many people have suffered from it. “
Amy initially decided to do the walk on her own, but soon realized that many of her friends and family had also miscarried and wanted to support the association with her.
âIt was amazing to finish the walk,â she said.
âWe are certainly tired but it was worth it.
“I’m glad the money is going to help people in need.”
