Walk for Life is a group that embraces our area, and walks for health and fitness. The group first came together last January when a group gathered to take in the fresh air and scenery of Saddleworth as publicised by the online magazine Saddleworth Life.
The next walk organised was in memory of the organiser’s son, Andrew who sadly took his life soon after the first walk. Jude strives to improve public mental health services in the area and to help others to better wellbeing. (Breathe – Saddleworth Mental Health Caring Group).
Recent funding from GM Walking has allowed the project to continue and plans are being made for the next year once we are able to meet face to face in greater numbers. Walk for Life is now facilitated by the Community Interest Company Saddleworth Community Projects.
