What’s it all about?
Join us on our Around the World Challenge and help us transform lives! We need to cover 25,127 miles – a whole lap around the globe. You can do it your way – by walking, using a wheelchair, running, rowing, cycling – however you would like to participate. And you can do as much or as little as you choose; every mile counts towards our total – and everyone is welcome!
When is this happening?
Our Around the World Challenge kicks off on 1 September and it will be a massive team effort to complete the 25,127 miles together within 80 days. You can join at any point too so don’t worry if you can’t start with us on 1 September.
How do I get involved?
You can sign up below for free. You’ll need to create a fundraising page on JustGiving and ask your friends and family for sponsorship – you can set your own fundraising target, we suggest a minimum of £80. You can upload your miles to your page, or set up Strava, the fitness app, and let it automatically update your page for you.
Why are we doing this?
It has never been more important for us to support people with learning disabilities and autism – whether it’s the iPad that helps someone connect with their loved ones, the sensory garden that provides a calming outdoor space, or our Love4Life dating and friendship programme that proves that everyone can find love – every penny you raise will make a difference and help us transform lives.
Who can take part?
Our Around the World Challenge is accessible for everyone. You can complete your own miles at your own pace, and in your own way. Whether you are using your feet, a wheelchair, a bike or a paddle, you can join and contribute, helping us travel the world for FitzRoy.
