The activity of walking can be for more reasons than just the personal. I thought it would be worthwhile researching and reviewing some sites devoted to ‘walking on purpose’, beginning with walking for charitable causes.
There are many walks organised each year with the purpose of raising money for charity. What a great way of doing something worthwhile! It’s a double whammy – you get to walk, in genial company, through awe-inspiring lanscapes and at the same time, raise money to help others less fortunate.
Below are details of a charity walk in Sussex, South East England. It’s coming up in May.
“Just Walk is an exciting sponsored UK charity walk for anyone wanting to fundraise for the charity of their choice. This fundraising walk is open to charities and anyone who is keen to get their walking boots on and hike for charity – you can choose either 10km, 20km, 40km or 60km routes – so something for everybody. This charity walk offers enthusiastic walkers the chance to experience a breathtaking charity walk over the picturesque South Downs in West Sussex and generate funds for their chosen charity”.
You’ll find ‘Just Walk’ on the site ‘Across the Divide’ which lists all sorts of charity-raising events of an outdoor/active nature.
- Do you walk for a purpose? Let me know and I’ll list it if I can. I might even come along!
