Trek the Freedom Trail for Rennie Grove Hospice Care

Trek the Freedom Trail

12-17 June 2020

The Challenge

This stunning four-day trek along the vibrant Costa Brava and the rugged Pyrenees transports us back into history as we retrace the footsteps of the Second World War escapees who fled Nazi-occupied France to Barcelona and beyond. 

 While trekking through this varied and challenging landscape you will discover stories of great bravery as you learn about ​Operation Rosalind​, a British naval undertaking to rescue evacuees from south-western France, and stories of great tragedy as you discover the story of German Jewish writer and philosopher Walter Benjamin and his attempted escape from Nazi officers by traversing the Pyrenees to Spain.
This challenge offers incredible trekking in a breath-taking location while supporting the services provided to local patients and families by Rennie Grove.
