The Macmillan Peak District walking challenge

27th March 2013

Macmillan invites walkers to join The Peak District walking challenge and raise money for local cancer services.

Macmillan Cancer Support invites anyone looking for a challenge or pleasant stroll in the beautiful Peak District to join them on the Peak District Walk on Sunday 28 April to help raise vital funds for local cancer services. The walk, organised by Jane Tomlinson's Walk for All charity, offers walkers spectacular views over Hope Valley, a chance to grapple with the great terrain that the Peak District offers or simply an opportunity to explore the charming villages of Castleton and Hope. With three stunning routes to choose from; The challenging 25 mile Dambuster, 14 mile Hope and Glory and 5 mile circular Mini Trekker, around Castleton and Hope there's something for everyone. Rob Turner, Macmillan fundraising manager said, - We're delighted to be one of the charities supporting the event again this year and hope we'll be joined by lots of people not only wanting to enjoy a real challenge or more relaxing walk with friends and family, but also wanting to help local people affected by cancer. Sadly more than one in three of us get cancer and for most of us it's the toughest fight we ever face. Feelings of loneliness and isolation experienced by many people, make it even harder. By taking part in this walk and raising funds, your time and energy can make a huge difference to people affected by cancer. For example, just £25 could cover the cost of a Macmillan nurse for an hour and by all pulling together less people will have to face cancer alone.
