Launched today – Strides Apart 2020!

It has been an extremely difficult time for many of us and at Charity Link we are facing a huge loss in fundraising income with a number of planned events already cancelled.

We’ve been keeping our fingers crossed regarding our popular (and now award winning!!) Leicestershire 3 Peaks Challenge which takes place each September.

Due to many factors it has become clear that unfortunately we can’t run this event as usual this year ……but we are so excited to today be launching Strides Ahead 2020 – this year’s slightly different version of our 16 mile walking or running challenge!

All the details can be found at

If you’re on social media please also follow our Facebook event page for regular updates and to share your thoughts on the event too.

We hope you will support Strides Apart 2020, whether you want to tackle 16 miles in one go (including taking on our unique Leicestershire 3 Peaks route) or do it over a few days or as part of a relay. Everyone signing up to Strides Apart 2020 will receive an exclusive t-shirt to proudly wear to highlight that you are helping to improve the lives of local people living in hardship, including those directly impacted by Covid-19.

We hope that Strides Apart 2020 inspires you to get out, to get fit and gives you something really positive to work towards. Remember that every £10 raised will enable us to provide £50 worth of essential items to the most vulnerable local people so you really will be making a difference. We need your support now more than ever, so …. are you up for it?!
