Make Your Miles Matter
Be part of something special this August and join us as we see how far our legs or wheels can take us, whilst supporting disabled children and their families.
Simply bank any exercise you complete this August – whether you walk, run, cycle, swim or wheel. Every mile counts and you can even help us decide on the route we take next. The whole family can get involved and it’s the perfect motivation to get out there and feel good this summer.
We have all had to adapt to life in lockdown, but for many families with a disabled child, this has presented extra challenges. Your support with this event can help us to ensure that disabled children and young people are not left behind and continue to receive the practical support they need to reduce loneliness and isolation.
Registration is £10 and there is no need to ask for any sponsorship, although you can if you want to of course. Children’s entries are £5, and their distances should be uploaded to their parent’s/carer’s account as we don’t collect data on children.
Once you are signed up, from 1st August you can begin banking your miles either by linking Strava to bring through your runs to your account or by manually uploading evidence of your distance. This could be a photo of a tracker app, your fitness/smartwatch or even just a photo of yourself doing the exercise and adding how far you covered.
The more of us that upload miles, the further we will virtually go! Anyone taking part has the chance to win a fantastic Luxury Treats Hamper (regardless of how many miles you bank) and there will also be prizes for the best photos taken en-route. And for the more competitive, we have a Leaderboard – can you or your team go the furthest and be at the top by the end of August to win a Making Your Miles Matter trophy?
Plus, everyone taking part will receive a personalised certificate for completing the challenge so what are you waiting for?
Not only will your own physical and mental health benefit, but you will also help us to continue supporting disabled children and their families who need us now more than ever.
