The Big Walk 2018

On Friday 22 June 2018, over 350 members of The University of Sheffield staff took part in The Big Walk - a 26.2 mile trek across the Peak District to raise money for the Sheffield Scanner appeal.

The appeal, which has now raised over £1.5 million, aims to bring a ground-breaking MRI-PET facility to Sheffield, which will help transform our understanding of serious conditions like cancer, dementia, heart and lung diseases, and much more.

The 2018 Walkers raised over £50,000, and were greeted by a BBQ and a well-deserved sit down when they arrived back at the University Arms at the end of the distance.

A number of our colleagues in Accommodation and Commercial Services completed the Walk, including two who ran the distance! Congratulations and well done to you all.
