2021 brings you the first ever Virtual MoonWalk Scotland...  this year’s theme is 'DISCO'… let your feet walk to the beat and decorate those bras with glitterballs, sequins and neon colours! 

In Walk the Walk’s unique style, we intend to make this an exciting and unforgettable experience and a Virtual challenge where you can really help to make a difference to the devastating impact that COVID-19 is having on those living with cancer.

With 4 challenges on offer  6.55, 13.1, 26.2, and 52.4 miles there really is a distance for everyone... which will you choose!

Walkers coming together in spirit across the country, and indeed the world, and in one common goal, all by Walking the Walk during the day in your very own local area... WOW... what an incredible experience to share… and a formidable sight to see!  

Every mile you walk and every penny you raise will make a difference!

Why is the MoonWalk Scotland a Virtual Event?

We are living in extraordinary and stressful times, but whatever your age and wherever you are, it is more important than ever to look after your own emotional and physical well-being, to take control of those parts of your life that you can, and together, to do what we can to support those not only living through this pandemic but also with cancer. Read more here.


If you need any help, then please get in touch.

 

*All those signed up previously for The MoonWalk Scotland 2020 should have received notification about the challenge changing to The Virtual MoonWalk Scotland. If you have a query, or need to get in touch, please email us here.*

Everything to do with teams

Please note: Teams are just for fundraising purposes only. If you are not fundraising together then no team is required

 

How do we fundraise as a team


Before registering decide on a team name and a team leader. The Team leader registers first and creates the team. If you would like to join an existing team you can register by searching for the team name in join team on the registration form.

 

If you register as an individual, you will not be able to join an existing team fundraising page after you complete your registration. Any queries regarding this please email [email protected] 

 

Ways to enter your Team Members.

 

  1. After entering the team name, you can then enter the email addresses of your team and they will receive an email inviting them to join. They will need to pay for their own places and complete their registration.
  2. Let your team members know the team name, they can then head to our website, and select the ‘Join Team’ option on the registration form
  3. Once the Team Leader has registered, before you pay you can choose to register another person. You can then enter the rest of your team members and pay for them, but you will need each person’s details.

 

What is the fundraising target for a team?


We ask that everyone who enters The MoonWalk aims to raise a minimum of £100.

 

 

Any further questions?

Please email us and we will be in touch.

All about the fundraising...

Our mission is simple... A £1 million appeal

For many, cancer has become isolating and unbearable, help us to make a much needed difference now, when it is needed most for those living with cancer!

Plus… to keep everyone walking, fit, healthy and motivated… key ingredients to prevention of cancer!

 

We can only do this, if we do it together…

 

 

We ask that everyone who enters The MoonWalk aims to raise a minimum of £100.

 

 

Here are a few ways to help you reach that magic figure!

  • Share your online page with friends and family. Make the most of it by following our handy hints.
  • Exchange your time for donations e.g. walking your neighbour’s dog, washing cars.
  • Give something up for sponsorship! Go without your favourite treats for a month. Chocolate, alcohol, cake? Can you manage it?
  • Check out our ten top tips here!
  • And finally… our Covid safe seasonal tips here!

 

Online Fundraising is perfect for these COVID times!

 

You already have an online Fundraising page set up so make the most of it!

  1. Make sure you upload a photo of you, so your friends and family can see it’s you!
  2. Tell your story! Why are you taking part? Many people walk in memory of someone dear to them, or you could be celebrating your all clear! Or maybe just escaping the COVID blues and getting fit and healthy into the bargain.
  3. Make a reasonable size donation first yourself as this sets the standard for those to follow. You make a £25 donation – many will follow you and donate the same amount.
  4. Update your page with progress. So, those new trainers, click and post; that soggy training walk; click and post; your decorated bra, click and post! You get the idea!
  5. Share your post regularly – every time you update it, share it, so everyone can see your progress and commitment! No need to ask for donations, your page will do it for you!
  6. Say thank you! Every time someone supports you be sure to say thank you so they feel appreciated and loved!
  7. Share! Share! Share!

How will the miles be tracked?

Through Strava...

Strava is a free app to download, that uses GPS to record your distance walked... this can be automatically connected to your online fundraising page on entry.

 

How do I get it?

You can connect your Strava account when you create your online fundraising page or later on via the "Connect to Strava" button on your fundraising page, this will be visible when you are logged in.

 

IMPORTANT! Strava settings...

 

When you are completing your challenge miles, ensure Strava is set to 'Everyone' so we can track your miles to show you have achieved your goal! 

This needs to be done before saving your walk. Please also ensure that the activity is set to a ‘Walk’ rather than a ‘Run’ or a ‘Hike’.

 

Training walks will not be automatically be posted to your page but why not keep your supporters updated by uploading pics, mileage and sharing the fun you have been up to on your walks.

 

What if I can't or do not want to use Strava or want to use another device to track my distance?

 

You can manually add an activity to your fundraising page, just make sure that you add a screenshot or picture to your activity once posted. Alternatively, you can upload your distance photo here (link will be available closer to the challenge). This must be received by Wednesday 16th June 2021.

 

Once we have notification your challenge is completed we will send an online certificate and your well deserved medal will follow in the post and should be with you by the end of June.
