This is an annual sponsored family walk (previously the May Day Trek), which raises money for Christian Aid. Starting on the edge of the beautiful Peak District National Park the 5 mile circular walk takes you past some of the most beautiful scenery on the Yorkshire/Derbyshire border.
Since it began in 1966 as the May Day Trek, the walk has raised thousands of pounds to help some of the poorest communities in the world. This year we are hosting it on a Saturday morning and there will not be the option of a longer walk (as there has been in previous years). This year will also include challenges along the way, ideal to keep the whole family entertained.
Walkers taking part in the Family Walk, and its associated walk the Sheffield Night Hike Challenge (held in June), raise approximately £10,000 each year. It’s a fantastic opportunity for families, friendship groups and individuals to help support long term development projects for some of the worlds poorest people.
