Make a difference by walking the distance

Worthing-based charity, Care for Veterans, which provides care and rehabilitation to disabled ex-Service personnel, is looking for participants to take part in a sponsored walking event in May.

Just Walk, on Saturday 12 May, is a unique challenge event at Goodwood Racecourse, where you can raise money for Care for Veterans and take on a personal challenge at the same time. You can choose to walk either 10km, 20km, 30km, 40km or the big 60km – pick the one that suits you best!

Care for Veterans’ Fundraising Officer, Christine Gillott, and her partner, Andy Riches, are taking on the big 60km route. Christine explains: “Our veterans are a real inspiration; they face a physical challenge every day. Motivated by them we will be taking on our own physical challenge and hope to complete the 60km Just Walk to show our support.”

You can walk to keep fit, in memory of a loved one, or to enjoy the great outdoors, across the beautiful South Downs and West Sussex countryside, starting and finishing at Goodwood Racecourse.

Entry is from £15, depending on the walking distance you choose. For more details, contact the Care for Veterans’ Fundraising Team on 01903 218444 or email christine.gillott@careforveterans.org.uk
