T20 Walkathon

T20 Walkathon

Bondholders raised over £6,000 by walking 20 miles from Trent Bridge, Nottingham to Bondholder 3aaa County Derby as part of the Cricket Derbyshire Foundation T20 Walkathon in association with Bondholder Smith Partnership.

Over 50 walkers braved the heat and sun for the second year of the Walkathon.

Representatives from Marketing Derby bondholders Smith Partnership, Century Mobile, Nelsons, Rolls-Royce, Derbyshire County Cricket Club, HUUB, 3aaa, Purpose Media, YMCA Derbyshire, Cherry Professional, Pennine Healthcare, Derby College, RDS Global and Derby City Council.

First over the line in the Rockfall Team Challenge were the HUUB team led by Dean Jackson who made the journey in around 6 and a half hours. They were joined by other walkers in time to walk the action in the Vitality Blast match between Derbyshire Falcons and Notts Outlaws.

Rachel Hudson, CDF Trustee, said “We are very grateful to everyone who joined us today for the T20 Walkathon. The power of sport can play an important role in binding communities together and inspiring people of all ages to be active and this year we aim to deliver sport and active lifestyle programmes in Derwent and Normanton wards as a direct result of today’s fundraising efforts”
