Walking for MileS 2008

This week we have started promoting our Walking for MileS 2008 event. On Sunday October 5th we intend to repeat the success of last years walks by returning to Beale Park once again. Last year this event raised over £25,000 with over 300 participants!

There will be another Half Marathon Challenge as well as the 7-8 mile walk and the Walk in the Park suitable for wheelchair users or people with pushchairs. This year we have added a new dimension to the event as the 7/8 miler will be going through Basildon Park, the National Trust estate where Pride and Prejudice was filmed 4 years ago.

The Half Marathon walk will also go through the main entrance onto a route that is yet to be planned. We are delighted that Sony has once again offered us a wonderful prize to give to the individual who raises the most sponsorship. This will be an SLR Digital Camera (Sony DSLR-A200).
