Hospice Launch their Step Into Summer Challenge
Could you walk up to100 miles in one month?? This summer the Southern Area Hospice Services are inviting you to register for their Step Into Summer Campaign which allows you to set your own challenge to walk a targeted distance over the month of July or August. Everyone can take part no matter what age - you simply choose a month during the summer (July/August), set your target distance which can be anything from 10mile to 100miles and you have the entire month to cover your chosen distance and if you’re successful, you get a prestigious medal as a reward for all your hard work!
With your pack you will also be given a log sheet to track your miles which you can hand in as proof of your distance. Kids are also encouraged to take part with a great kids pack with a calendar for them to complete too and a colouring sketch.
Denise Doyle, Community Fundraising Officer commented ‘I am delighted to launch the Step Into Summer campaign to encourage everyone to get out and about this summer. It can be hard in the summer months so we would like to motivate people to enjoy the great outdoors by inviting everyone to come along and sign up to our campaign to get fit and healthy this summer. You will also be helping support your local Hospice which is an amazing incentive to complete your challenge’.
Registration is £10 per person (kids register for free) and there is no set fundraising target so whether you raise £5 or £500 every penny will go towards supporting your local Hospice. Why not get your friends, family or work colleagues involved. You can register at Eventbrite by messaging us at the Southern Area Hospice Services Facebook page or by calling us on 028 3025 1333.
