On August 19th Jen and Cookie, her rescue dog, set off on an adventure to walk across all national parks in England. 10-weeks-10-national-parks-and-1000-miles, with the aim of raising £10,000 for the Peak District National Park Foundation for projects focussing on accessibility and inclusivity, wellbeing and climate change within the national park.
There’s a great synergy between the Alpkit Foundation and Jen’s outlook for her challenge. We know how the National Parks can play a vital role in introducing and teaching people about the importance and benefits of time outdoors and the natural world.
By supporting Jen on her challenge we really want to help highlight further the important work going on within National Parks, on this occasion focussing on those 10 that she's walking through.
We will be doing this by matching her fundraising target, providing a £10,000 fund for grass roots projects happening within the National Parks that address accessibility, wellbeing, and tackling climate change and its impacts.
After Jen’s challenge, we will select 2 projects from each of the 10 National Parks she visited, awarding them £500 each to support the work they are doing.
So if you involved with a project happening within one of these, then Apply Now and let us know about the work going on along with how the £500 will go direct to making an impact.
Please use Walk in the Parks as the project title. Deadline is December 31st, 2023.
Projects must be focused on promoting accessibility and wellbeing, and tackling climate change and its impacts within the National Park.
