NSPCC walking challenge

People can prepare to put on their walking boots for a good cause.

The NSPCC is launching its annual walking challenge, HACK (Hike Against Cruelty to Kids) in Halifax, which takes place on Saturday July 6.

A family friendly seven-mile route will be taking place on the day, along with a challenging 22-mile walk that will cross some of Calderdale’s most stunning countryside, taking participants up to Stoodley Pike in the Pennines.

Both routes will be starting from the Moorlands Inn in Ogden, Halifax.

NSPCC community fundraising manager for West Yorkshire, Helen Verity, said: “Training for the HACK is a great way to start a keep fit campaign and taking part is an amazing challenge and experience. The HACK will be a fabulous day out in the great outdoors and a valuable opportunity to help the NSPCC raise money to support its project.”

Registration fees range from £2.50 to £20 depending on age and chosen route.
