What is the Macmillan Dog Walking Challenge? This is a great way to get out and about with your dog and raise money for people living with cancer. Walk a distance of your choice with your furry friend by your side. By taking part in a sponsored dog walk, you accept that you must, as least, be at a basic level of fitness in order to participate.
What is walk all over cancer? Walk All Over Cancer is a fundraising and activity challenge that occurs annually every March in aid of the charity Cancer Research UK. Participants are challenged to a sponsored walk of 10,000 steps every day during the month, and all proceeds from the fundraising are donated to the charity.
Why the sponsored walk is a good idea? A sponsored walk is a great way to raise money without the need for lots of planning and volunteers. It also promotes exercise, takes your fundraising into the public eye and can bring your whole community together. And with a short, flat route everyone can join in – even those in buggies and wheelchairs.
