Huddersfield Examiner Charity Challenge Sunday May 17th 2015
This year we will be running from three sites:-.
Lepton Highlanders, we shall have 3 Walks as before: • 20K walk which will be accompanied all the way along the route. • 7 mile and 4 mile walks – these will be unaccompanied, but the routes will be marked in the normal way with check points all round the route.
At Beaumont Park we shall also have the Wheelchair and Pushchair Teddy Bear Hunt.
The Old Goods Yard at Marsden will be the start of the Horse Ride.
This year the aim is to help smaller charities and good causes which is why we are eager for groups like junior sports clubs, cubs, guides, brownies, scouts, community groups and schools to sign up.
This is the 26th Examiner Charity Challenge and over the years the event has raised £750,000 for a massive range of charities and good causes. To enter simply download a form from the Examiner website and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or complete a form which is printed regularly in the Examiner. The application form will also be in the Examiner at least once per week. You can also contact the Examiner by email on email@example.com and ask for the application form to be emailed to you, or if you need hard copies the Examiner are happy to post these to you.
We look forward to seeing you and your supporters on the 17th May All the organisation is done by Lions clubs across Huddersfield and the Examiner and we even count up all your money.
Over the winter, the hard-working people involved in putting on the Charity Challenge took to the fields and lanes around Lepton to test out the new routes for the walkers.
Now they want many, many more to join them on a May weekend, so how about it?
Will you sign up to accept the Challenge and help so many others? Youngsters and Disabled entrants
The part of The Challenge which caters for toddlers, disabled people and for yougsters in pushcairs is being organised and run by the Lions club of Holmfirth and Meltham on behalf of the Examiner.
Once again we are using Beaumont Park, which can be tackled by toddlers, disabled people and for people with young children in pushchairs.
The location at Beaumont Park provides a good opportunity for these people to enter the challenge and raise money for their chosen charity and it is near to the main venue.
This year we have the Teddy Bear hunt as part of the walk which will give the children extra interest during the walk For more information please follow the link to Lions Club of Holmfirth and Meltham
