Good luck Big Walkers!

President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Koen Lamberts, wishes everyone taking part in the Big Walk the best of luck.

Dear colleague,

After months of planning – and training – tomorrow sees hundreds of staff, students, alumni and friends coming together to walk 23 or 37 miles in the Peak District for our annual Big Walk challenge. This year, we are fundraising to support Sheffield Scholarships.

I would like to wish everyone taking part in the walk the best of luck for the day.

Equality of opportunity

The Big Walk 2019 is supporting scholarships here at the University of Sheffield. We are passionate about encouraging young people to aim higher and fulfil their potential. Scholarships help ensure that all students have the opportunity to study here regardless of their financial or personal circumstances.

By getting involved in the Big Walk in whatever way you are able, you are playing your part in helping more students to experience a Sheffield education.

Support your colleagues

If you are not able to take part, you can still support your colleagues by making a donation towards this important cause – simply follow the link below. Please also follow their progress and send messages of support via the University’s social media channels, including the #TUOSBigWalk hashtag.

Once again, best of luck to everyone taking part in tomorrow’s Big Walk.

Many thanks,
Koen Lamberts
