AF UK organise a series of sponsored walks throughout the year to raise money for our projects.
Each summer we enter the famous Yorkshire 3-Peaks Challenge. This is a real challenge – you have to walk a circuit of around 20 miles taking in three prominent peaks on the way (Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside, and Ingleborough). Our supporters raise hundreds of pounds through sponsorship, and get to meet like-minded people on a wonderful day out in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
We also organise an easier walk up Pendle Hill near Clitheroe, Lancashire. This is often attended by school children from schools that are associated with AF.
We also organise occasional walks in the Lake District of Cumbria. These are often quite strenuous climbs up to the peaks of these mountains, and we encourage our supporters who are thinking of joining our Pakistan Treks to see this as useful training!
