High Peak Winter Hike unites 600 in the fight for every heartbeat

23rd November 2015

More than 600 hikers took to the Derbyshire countryside this weekend for the BHF's 21st High Peak Winter Hike in a united front against coronary heart disease, the UK's single biggest killer.

The High Peak Winter Hike which started and finished at Cromford Meadows saw hikers cover 17 miles along the High Peak Trail to raise urgently needed funds for the nation's heart charity. BHF Event Organiser Andy Coles said: -I would like to thank everyone who took part, everyone who supported our hikers and all of our volunteers particularly The Clay Cross Cadets and The Lions. Despite the cold and windy weather everyone turned up in high spirits to complete the 17 mile hike. Thank you to everyone who has already sent in their sponsorship money. If you haven't yet, don't worry; there's still time to set up a fundraising page and help us beat our target of £50,000 to go towards essential research into heart disease. Coronary heart disease is not beaten yet it remains the single biggest killer in the UK and it's because of your support, that we are able to continue our fight to find a cure. The BHF organises more than 50 events every year, from on and off road bike rides to swims and half marathons. Upcoming hikes in the North of England include Hadrian's Wall Hike on 24th April and Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge on 9th July 2016, visit bhf.org.uk/events for more information.
