Walk a mile every day in May and raise money for the Pink Ribbon Foundation to support those affected by breast cancer. During the lockdown period, we’re looking for households to sign up and commit to walking one mile every day between the 1st May and 31st 2020 for charity.
Now more than ever, it’s important to take daily exercise outdoors to look after both your physical and mental health. It is possible to enjoy a walk outside with family, so long as you follow the UK government guidelines and keep a safe distance from others.
It takes just 15-20 minutes to walk a mile at a moderate pace and the fresh air will reap huge benefits for the whole family whilst the challenge of the daily walk, will give you all something to work towards together. Plus, you’ll be raising money for a good cause too!
There is no sign-up fee and no pressure to set yourself a huge fundraising target. You could set up an online fundraising page (here) and ask friends and family to sponsor your efforts with an amount per mile or a total at the end of May or you can donate as a family at the end of the month – it’s up to you! If every household that signed up donated just £1 per mile – then the £31 raised for the Pink Ribbon Foundation is just a little over the amount usually spent by one person on their monthly coffee fix. So, whilst the coffee shops are closed, put your trainers on, grab the kids and get walking to support those with breast cancer.
Once you’ve completed your challenge, we’ll also send you a certificate in recognition of your support which you can proudly hang on the fridge and don’t forget to share photos of you walking on social media #WalkaMileaDayinMay
