We would walk 500 miles….would you?

Can you help us reach 500 miles for children with neurological conditions?

We’re issuing a challenge to all of our supporters.

Every year people do all sorts of things to raise money for us and help us make a positive difference to the lives of children with neurological conditions. We’ve had people taking part in a gruelling mud run, a walk along Offa’s Dyke, cycle rides, 10k’s, talent competitions and multiple marathons.

Now we’d like to offer the opportunity for our ambitious supporters to really test themselves: Can you walk 500 miles for charity?

Don’t panic just yet! We’re not asking you to do it all by yourself.

With all the walks, runs, jumps and all sorts of other things people are doing for us, we’ve decided to set our supporters a goal of 500 miles. This means you can do whatever you like – over whatever distance you like – and it’ll be added to our 500 mile total.

So far we’re including a 10k run in London by both staff and supporters and an incredible Three Peaks Trek that will see some of our fundraisers not only walking the Welsh Three Peaks, but also the distance between each mountain, camping the whole way.

Altogether these two alone add up to 230 miles – which means we only have 270 miles left to reach our 500 goal!

So now it’s down to you. What do you fancy doing that can add to our total? Your own 10k challenge? Or maybe a marathon. Perhaps even a sky dive. You can walk, run, jump, swim, skip, cycle or anything else. Just let us know how far it is your going and how much you raise doing it and we’ll add your numbers.

Get in touch with our community fundraising team and let us know what you’re doing:

Or let us know on Facebook.

Get your friends and family involved and we’ll include their mileage too – the more the merrier!

We’ll keep you updated through our news page, as well as Facebook and Twitter. Don’t be shy – like or subscribe and keep us up-to-date on your own progress. We love to hear from you and you could even end up with your own article.

By helping us reach 500 miles you’ll be raising vital funds for children with neurological conditions like cerebral palsy, autism, Down syndrome and ADHD, making a real difference to lives all over the UK.
