Baines Wilson solicitors have taken on a walking challenge to walk the 2,448 miles of America’s Route 66 in just 30 days to raise money for Carlisle Youth Zone.
The firm will run, walk and track steps to progress along the route during April, hopefully reaching the end of the route at Santa Monica pier at the end of the month.
Sean Logue, Head of Partnership at Baines Wilson said: “We are proud to have been associated with the Carlisle Youth Zone since the beginning. The support their incredible team provides to the young people of Carlisle and its environs is invaluable and has been crucial to so many families during this pandemic. Our Route 66 challenge will hopefully raise some additional funds to support their ongoing work in our community.
This challenge is also a great opportunity to bring our own team at Baines Wilson together as many continue to work from home. For us it’s a win-win situation – working as a team to raise funds for a great cause and helping to improve our own physical wellbeing at the same time. We would be grateful for any support businesses can offer.”
So far they have raised £515 for Carlisle Youth Zone.

Lynsey Buckle of Carlisle Youth Zone commented: “As we start to look ahead to the aftermath of Covid we are preparing ourselves for a huge spike in the amount of disadvantaged young people who will need our help. We’re so grateful to Baines Wilson for choosing to support Carlisle’s young people with this fabulous challenge, we can’t wait to see how they get on!”
