University of Sheffield - THE BIG WALK 2016

Team photo

Thanks for taking the time to visit the Big Walk 2016 JustGiving team page. More information about The Big Walk 2016 can be found at:

www.shef.ac.uk/big-walk

The Big Walk 2016 combines two key events - The Trans Pennine Trail and the One Day Walking Challenge. Please get behind the whole team or one of the indivdual walkers listed below with a donation today. 

-----

2 teams of 10 staff will each be walking over 120 miles from 12th-17th June to Sheffield on the Trans Pennine Trail, one team from the west coast in Southport and the other from the east coast in Hornsea. They will meet in Tankersley on Day 5 and walk the 18 miles back to the University campus the following day accompanied by a team of staff, students, alumni and friends.

Funds raised through the Big Walk will be used to support refugee academics and students at the University, to demonstrate our solidarity with refugees and to show that refugees are welcome at our University and in our city. Our University is a University of Sanctuary and this has been our tradition since this institution was founded.  

Funds raised through the Big Walk 2016 will be used in the following ways:

Supporting at-risk academics: We have strong links with a number of programmes to support at-risk academics, including the Institute of International Education's Scholar Rescue Fund and the Council for At-Risk Academics (CARA) -  a charity which helps academics in immediate danger, those forced into exile. Through these partnerships, the University of Sheffield can host academics, giving them a place of safety and the financial and practical help to continue their careers until such as time as they can return home. 

Students seeking refuge or asylum: The University offers fully funded undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships for refugees including those seeking asylum in the UK. Throughout 2016 we will be raising funds to increase this support.

Thank you for supporting the Big Walk 2016.
