May marks the start of a month-long campaign and it is a great way to raise money for the British Heart Foundation but it also gives us a chance to look back on the times we joined in with sponsored walks of all kinds.
Were you pictured walking to raise money for a new mini bus in Hebburn or striding out in fancy dress at Fellgate Primary School?
We have all this and more as we turn back the clock.
1. In perfect step in 2008
Youngsters from Noah's Ark Nursery were off on a sponsored walk 13 years ago with Deputy Mayor Coun Alex Donaldson and his wife Brenda there to see them off.
2. All smiles in Hebburn in 2004
These Hebburn College students were walking for Children In Need 17 years ago. Can you spot someone you know?
3. Marching back to Hebburn in 2004
Youngsters from the Red Roof Kids Club were walking to raise money for a new mini bus at Hebburn Clegwell Community Association. Does this bring back great memories?
4. Fancy that! They're having great fun in Fellgate
