Walkers will put their best foot forward for charity in the first mass participation walk of its kind, when the Jane Tomlinson Walk For All comes to the Hope Valley during The Peak District Walking & Outdoor Festival 2012.

The Peak District Walk follows the success of last year’s Yorkshire Dales Walking Festival, which saw 2,500 people enjoy the day, and will take in sights such as Jacob’s Ladder and Mam Tor on either 5, 12 or 24-mile walks on April 29.

Yorkshire’s Jane Tomlinson helped raise £1.85m for charity before her death from cancer, with her family setting up the successful Run for All and Walk For All series in her memory.

Events director at Walk For All, Sara Birkinshaw, said: “The Peak District and particularly the Hope Valley were close to her heart.

“In looking for our next Walk For All, we knew that the Peak District would offer our supporters a stunning day out and also enable us to help a host of local Peak District charities.”

Full details are listed in the new Peak District Walking & Outdoor Festival programme, which can be viewed and ordered online at www.visitpeakdistrict.com or available from tourist information centres.
