Help For Heroes Challenge Trek

Peak Outdoor Training are organising a series of walks to raise money for the Help for Heroes charity. The walks take place in May 2011, are open to everyone and take place in and around the borders of the Peak District National Park. There is a novice 6km walk for beginners and under 14s, an intermediate 12-14km walk with optional abseil and an extreme 20km trek with optional abseil. Entry costs £25 per person or £80 for a family of four and all money goes to charity. You can also collect your own sponsorship money in addition to this to send directly to the charity.

Help for Heroes raises money to support members of the Armed Forces who have been wounded in the service of their country. The money raised by Help for Heroes is used to fund projects that make a huge difference to the lives of wounded Servicemen and women. Help for Heroes first project was an £8m swimming pool and gym complex at DRMC Headley Court, to help with rehabilitation. They have since raised £20m which will fund 4 Personal Recovery Centres, the first of which is to open this Spring. They are now asking for help to raise a further £20m to fund Individual Recovery Plans to aid Servicemen and women on the road to recovery and pay for courses and opportunities to help them rebuild their lives and equip them for the future.
