The Derbyshire Cricket Foundation’s T20 Walkathon is bouncing back for 2021! Join us on 2nd July to take part in either a 20 mile or 5 mile sponsored walk.
Walking has played a massive part in our well-being over the course of the last year and what better way to celebrate this and put your new walking skills to the test by signing up for the challenge. Boasting a brand new, specifically designed route with the bonus of a shorter distance. This social event appeals to everyone from those looking to challenge themselves individually or as part of a group to those with younger families or people looking for a gentler approach.
Whichever route you decide we will be encouraging walkers to explore some of Derbyshire’s most picturesque countryside and Idyllic cricket clubs. Starting off at Derbyshire’s Incora County Ground, we will take in sights from Parker’s Piece, Darley Abbey, Breadsall, Morley, and Stanley. Then heading south we will pass through Locko Park, Spondon, Ockbrook, Borrowash, Elvaston, and then finally back to Derby (the 5 mile route will be a smaller, circular version of the route above also starting and finishing at the Incora County Ground)
You will be welcomed back with some much-needed refreshments and then we will invite you to sit back and relax with family, friends and enjoy the theatrics of the T20 game between the Derbyshire Falcons and Worcestershire Rapids.
Why Take Part?
The T20 Walkathon event is instrumental in raising money to support our valued community projects, projects like the Summer Holiday Camp. The Foundation is committed to focussing and tackling the issues that affect residents of Derby and Derbyshire and we recognise that food poverty is just one of many.
Food poverty in the Derwent ward in particular is most prominent as it sits within the top 2% of most deprived areas in the country. The majority of its children receiving free school meals. We are aware that during the school holidays, families feel the financial burden of having to find extra money to cover the costs of those meals that they would normally receive in school. In an effort to minimise this effect, our summer holiday camp looks to provide children with the opportunity to take part in multisport activities and receive a healthy meal. Help us to ensure that these children create new friendships, discover new skills, and create positive memories for life.
