We had such a fantastic time at the weekend on Just Walk here are just a few of the comments trickling in:

To date our walkers have raised £9868 so should get to the £10K mark which we are absolutely thrilled about.They all had a great day and some looked very happy by the photos, ending up in a most acceptable pub congratulating themselves on their efforts.  Caroline Brookes at TreeHouse charity

2009 Just Walk a huge success | limited time only 10% off all registration fees

Saturday saw the third successful Just Walk  take place in the South Downs, West Sussex.  The one-day walking challenge saw over 700 people walking 10, 20, 40 or 60 kilometres fundraise for a charity of choice.

The event was opened by Olympic medal winner and keen athlete, Acer Nethercott.  Acer said, “Just Walk is a wonderful event. It’s fabulous to see so many people out in the open air, raising funds for their chosen charity. I hope to take part myself next year!”

Across the Divide began Just Walk as a result of continued requests from charities wanting to get involved in fundraising walks, but unable to invest time and money into their own events. To date, Just Walk has raised over £1 million for over 200 charities.

Gemma Phillips, UK Events Co-ordinator at Across the Divide says, “The event was a great success. It was our biggest year yet with a fantastic turn out on a beautiful day. The walk was tough in places but we had some very happy walkers crossing the finish line. Here’s to Just Walk 2010.”

 The next Just Walk event will be taking place on 15 May 2010 and for a limited time only we are offering 10% off all registrations fees – so join us now.
