With less than three months to go, we’re counting down the days to our second annual Jane Tomlinson’s Peak District Walk. This year, we have three different courses - the 25-mile Dambuster, the 14-mile Hope and Glory and 5-mile Mini Trekker – so there is something to suit all ages and abilities. The shorter walk is especially suitable for families, and they can even bring the dog on what promises to be a great day out.
Last year around 1,000 people joined us at Walk For All to explore the very best of Derbyshire’s beautiful countryside.
Walking the dog. It’s something that thousands of us do every day, an ordinary activity. But one that, at Guide Dogs, we know can be extraordinary.
I’ve been fortunate enough to work for this fantastic charity for the past 9 years. In that time I have managed fundraising events large and small; I’ve met people taking part in the extreme, the enduring and the down-right silly. I’ve also met countless others who have had their lives infinitely transformed thanks to our work.
How do you use technology when you are walking?
Walking alone used to be a solitary, quiet experience. Now there are a myriad of ways to add to your journey. From a music soundtrack through earphones, to tweeting about your journey, to accessing QR codes about the environment you are walking in, it seems the experience of walking has changed beyond recognition.
