Sheffield Scanner - The Big Walk 2017

The Big Walk

The Big Walk, supported by Juice, returns for 2017 in aid of the University-wide Sheffield Scanner campaign which is raising funds to provide an MRI-PET facility in Sheffield - the first such facility in Yorkshire. 

The University aimed to raise £100,000 towards the £2 million target. Participants – staff, alumni, students and friends of the University set off on 7am on Friday 30 June to walk as far as they could along a circular 50-mile route in 24 hours.

A team from Human Resources participated in The Big Walk 2017 - see the Blister Pack Just Giving Page to find out more and provide support. 

Further information can be found at The Big Walk 2017

Various other events are taking place to raise money for the Sheffield Scanner campaign including a University quiz night and local events such as bake sales within departments.

See the Sheffield Scanner for further details
