Public statement: S.A.L.V.E. International’s new Peak District Challenge Partnership
S.A.L.V.E.’s main fundraising event for the past six years has been the Peak District Challenge 10 – 100 km event, taking place each year in the stunning Peak District National Park.
In order to ensure the safety of entrants and volunteers during the COVID-19 pandemic, S.A.L.V.E. will not be running a Peak District Challenge event in 2020. Instead, we will be running a virtual “Beat the Boundary” Challenge on 26th September 2020 which can be done in smaller groups that are more in keeping with current safety guidelines.
We would like to thank everyone that has volunteered or participated in the Peak District Challenge to support S.A.L.V.E. to date and appreciate you for your continued support.
We are pleased to announce an exciting new partnership for S.A.L.V.E. for the Peak District Challenge for 2021. We will be partnering with Action Challenge, a highly reputable outdoor events company, to offer a new Peak District Challenge event on 3rd-4th July 2021. We have been impressed by their commitment to safety, as well as the incredible support and experience they offer to everyone who takes part in their events.
In previous years, we ran the Peak District Challenge events in conjunction with local outdoor activities provider Wilderness Development. Each of these past events was a great success thanks to the wonderful people who took part or volunteered and helped to raise much-needed funds for S.A.L.V.E’s work with homeless children in Jinja, Uganda. S.A.L.V.E. is incredibly grateful to each and every volunteer and entrant that has participated in the challenges over the years.
S.A.L.V.E is no longer partnering with Wilderness Development on their Peak District Challenge event or any other events they are running. S.A.L.V.E is therefore no longer affiliated with any events run by Wilderness Development or statements made by them under the Peak District Challenge name and found at https://www.peak-district-challenge.com/ or the associated Wilderness Development social media (e.g. Facebook) pages. Any amounts raised for the challenges advertised on these pages will not lead to any charitable donations to S.A.L.V.E.
