The event focussed on walking across 20 different Bradford parks, throughout the week covering a 12 hour period and with all our walkers.  Over 50 walkers of all abilities joined in at least one of our walks, and the event was celebrated at the Half Moon Cafe in Roberts Park on Tuesday 24th July at 2.30pm.  Complimentary Get Out There T shirts were available as well as other walking resources and information.
