Macmillan Cancer Support’s annual walking event in Bradford, the Shipley Stride, takes place on May 20th. Last year, nine hundred participants raised £25,000 by completing the five and a half mile circular walk, which starts outside Bracken Hall Countryside Centre on Shipley Glen and takes in some of the areas most stunning scenery.

Half way around the route the Scout Camp (check point 2) provides a perfect resting place as picnic tables and toilets are available. Here juice and biscuits can also be found handed out by volunteers to all walkers. The second half of the walk crosses the moor and passes Baildon Golf course before descending down towards Crook Farm Caravan Park and then back to Bracken Hall.

This lovely walk is part of the Millennium Walkways of Bradford and although it is undulating in areas it is suitable for all ages and abilities. Lone walkers are welcome as experienced walk leaders will be available for those who would like to join a group.

Emma Lavelle-Wood, Bradford Fundraising Manager, said “The Shipley Stride is a fantastic family event and the support we receive from the local people means it just keeps getting bigger and better.” Walkers signing up for this years walk will all receive a FREE pedometer courtesy of N Power and also have the opportunity to purchase exclusive Walk Wonders 2007
T-shirts to wear on the day.

Macmillan Cancer Support provides practical and emotional support for people living with cancer. By taking part in the Shipley Stride and raising money through sponsorship you will be enabling Macmillan to continue to fund vitally need services and Macmillan clinical specialists in the area.
