If you are within easy reach of London UK: On Sunday 2nd of October there is a 5km Nordic Walk at Hyde Park organised by the team from British Nordic Walking (INWA).

The 5km Nordic Walk for Children in Need is a fun challenge for everyone and all ages taking place in Hyde Park, London. All Nordic Walkers are welcome to come along and raise money for "Children in Need."

To register go here:

Just for the record and for members outside of the UK: Children in Need is a huge national fund raising event for (you've guessed it) - children in need. Although fundraising events take place all over the Britain, the really big night is a television extraveganzer on the BBC, where the whole evening is dedicated to one thing "Children in Need" and millions and millions of GB Pounds are pledged by phone by the great British public for the charity.

One of the amazing things is that despite the dire economy we have suffered in recent years and it's getting worse all the time, the British public still donate record sums of money each year!

Please promote this on your social media pages e.g. facebook / twitter etc.
