Get fit, have fun and support vulnerable children’s education in Uganda!
Our 50 miles in 30 days walking challenge launches on 2nd January 2020, when we’re all feeling that post-Christmas, New Year urge to get out and get fit.
Simply sign up below and donate £25 to take part, we’ll send you a registration pack, including a Global Care beanie hat to wear while you’re walking, and you’re off!
You can walk every day, just at weekends, or anything in between, to suit yourself. Just keep track of how far you’ve gone with a basic walking app, and aim to complete 50 miles by the end of January. We’ll throw in a few little challenges for people wearing their beanies, with prizes along the way, and hopefully we’ll all have fun as well as get fitter! Post your miles and your images on social media using the hashtag #50miles30days and we can all cheer each other along!
All profits from the activity will go to our partner schools in Uganda, where children often have to walk long distances every day to get to school. So you’ll be improving educational opportunities for vulnerable children too!
Every partner school will receive a small grant to fund a project or resources of their choice, and we will let you know how the money is spent. If you want to raise additional funds through sponsorship, there’s no obligation, but that’s great, please do! Please use Virgin Money Giving for online fundraising (as charges for Global Care are lower) or contact us for a traditional sponsorship form.
Please sign up using the form below and then make your donation here. Thank you for your support!
(If you would like to buy a Global Care hoodie to keep you cosy while you walk, a limited edition navy blue organic cotton hoodie is available for order here, until 2nd December.)
