T20 Walkathon from Nottingham to Derby launched for 2018
Enjoy a night of Vitality Blast action, get active and raise money with the Cricket Derbyshire Foundation’s (CDF) T20 Walkathon, from Nottingham to Derby, on Friday 13 July.
The walkathon returns for a second year and will see fundraisers walk 20 miles from Trent Bridge to The 3aaa County Ground in time for the big Vitality Blast derby between Derbyshire Falcons and Notts Outlaws (7pm start, approx. 9.45pm finish).
All walkers will receive bus travel to Trent Bridge, donated by Trent Barton, for the start of the walk, a sponsored walk t-shirt and an event pack. The registration fee, of £25, also includes safety stewards for the journey, ticket for the Vitality Blast match and on arrival in Derby a hog roast roll and complimentary drink, courtesy of Greene King.
All proceeds raised will go to the CDF (Charity No. 1155801) and will support the delivery of a range of community projects to young people across the county, using the power of sport.
CDF Chairman, Michael Futers, said: “Our inaugural T20 Walkathon last summer was a huge success, with over £6,500 raised for the foundation.
“While providing a fun and active way to raise valuable funds for the foundation, the monies raises from this new fundraising initiative will help sustain and extend the positive lifestyle programme we are already delivering in the community across the city and the wider county.
“We want to use the power of sport to have a positive impact on the lives of young people in Derbyshire, and fundraising events like this are key to helping us deliver the highly rewarding programmes.”
