NewsYANA team in Walking4Norfolk Norwich to Notre Dame start walking

A fresh air-loving gang of YANA supporters is purposefully putting one step in front of another for miles and miles this May to raise funds for our work for better rural mental health. 

Going the extra mile

The momentous walking will take the group of five all the way from Norwich to Notre Dame, no less. But virtually, of course. The Walking4Norfolk Norwich-Paris challenge of covering 375 miles set off mid-May at Norwich Cathedral. 

The six YANA walkers are not alone. In fact, there are 39 teams of walkers in total. Together they will cover a combined distance equivalent to over half way round the world. As well as fundraising for their team’s chosen charity, every group will donate to the Walking4Norfolk fund for Unpaid Carers in Norfolk.

Team effort

The YANA Never Walk Alone (see what they did there!) team is made up of some particularly notable pedestrians. You can follow their progress going the distance on the Walking4Norfolk Leaderboard. They include, we kid you not, Achilles Heel, Ivor Soreknee, Carrie Mehome, Eva Soslow and Tina Trackandtrace. 

One of them is aka Henry Kilvert YANA Chair of Trustees. Hopefully he will have trusty knees for the duration of the challenge. He has already reported in that they have made a striding start.

To show your admiration for all this effort you are invited to make a donation.

Best of all they are raising the profile of how YANA is helping better rural mental health all over the county.
