The Wakefield Community Trust will be supporting the Rugby League Cares Founders Walk this October, and they want you to join them.

Support the Community Trust and RL Cares with a sponsored walk.

Rugby league fans are set to unite for an historic set of walks across the North of England across seven days, with fans encouraged to join members of the Wildcats Academy and staff including Nick Fozzard in joining them walking from Penistone to Huddersfield on Thursday 24th October.

The 19-mile route will start at 9am and funds raised will be split between the Wakefield Community Trust and RL Cares.

Each participant must raise a minimum of £50 and those interested are asked to contact

As the Rugby League playing nations are in their final preparations for the Tournament, Rugby League’s charity Rugby League Cares will be focused on encouraging whole of Rugby League community to come together in celebration of the founding of the sport over 100 years ago.

Rugby League Cares is calling on everyone who cares about Rugby League to participate in the challenge and walk for those in the sport who need help. People can walk as far as they like with challenging walks taking place over a number of days, daily and community mile walks planned.

All of the planned routes make their way through some of the key historical locations linked to the early days of the sport. The charities objective is to encourage a Rugby League pilgrimage headed back to where it all began in 1895, the George Hotel in Huddersfield.

Cares has created a new partnership with the Trans Pennine Trail to deliver the event and through this has the support of all 27 Local Authorities that span the Trail. All legs will meet in Huddersfield for the final walk to the John Smiths Stadium on Thursday 24th October 2013, before the opening ceremony of the 2013 Rugby League World Cup Cardiff at the weekend.

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
