Walking Further for charity
17:27 on Thu, 17 May 2012 | 0 Comments
Next month will see members of the Further team embark on a 47-mile walk in 24 hours in aid of Community Sports Foundation’s Sports Appeal. It helps provide activities that help disabled people keep active, learn new skills, socialise and increase their independence.
The “Coastal Challenge Walk”, a 47-mile slog from Hunstanton to Cromer, will see a Further team which includes Colin, Rob, Steve, Lou, Vicky, Wes, Emily and Ben trek across the North Norfolk Coast in under 24 hours. Starting at 11am on 22nd June in Hunstanton, members of Team Further will walk across the coast, taking in Burnham Deepdale, Wells, Morston and Cley – finishing in Cromer 24 hours later.
Our walk, which is in aid of the Community Foundation’s Sporting Life Appeal, will help us raise crucial funds to help provide day centre services, coaching and fun activities for people to help increase their skills and confidence.
We’re looking forward to the walk. With no sleep and only our determination to guide us we just hope it’s not Further than we thought! The training walk on Sunday was certainly more greulling than we'd thought, but we're always up for a challenge!
