The Virtual SunWalk... why take part?

As a grant making charity, many breast cancer charities across the UK depend on our support and we are already seeing an increase in the demands for grants. Those living with cancer and those just being diagnosed are having a tough time, not least living with the fear of not getting treatment they need or going through treatment alone because of self-isolation, as well as the fear of becoming ill.


Support Walk the Walk by joining our Virtual SunWalk and help us to really make a difference to those living with cancer, when they need us most. 

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

 

Reward prizes for fundraising!

Every penny really does count... we need your support now more than ever. Nothing must stop us uniting together against breast and other cancers… cancer doesn’t stop and neither will we!

 

What are the rewards?

 

We ask that everyone raises £50 and for those of you that go above and beyond... check out our fantastic prizes below:

 

  • £50 – thank you so much for hitting your fundraising goal!
  • £100 – you have doubled your fundraising! You will receive a Walk the Walk Tote Bag as a reward!

Festival Fundraising tips

 

Use your fundraising page to say why you’re taking part in the Festival and raising funds for Walk the Walk. Your story can really make a difference and hopefully encourage your supporters to dig deep!

 

Get your friends and family to sponsor your Festival playlist! An upbeat song can soon get you powering along... let’s hope you'll be 'Walking on Sunshine!'

 

Who doesn’t love a smoothie? Use your favourite smoothie recipes to create refreshing drinks to tempt your family and friends... for a donation of course! Or use the smoothie recipes created especially for the SunWalk Festival! Set up a stall in your garden or in front of your house for maximum impact!

 

Keep your neighbourhood beautiful by watering your neighbours’ gardens while they’re away. No-one wants to come home to drooping plants when they’ve spent a lot of time and effort making their gardens bloom... so watch your kind offer bear lots of cash fruit!

 

With many people still working from home, parents are struggling to keep the children occupied while they work. Take the children off their hands with some Festival activities to keep them busy* and out of Mum and Dad’s hair. A donation to your page will be a great exchange! See some fun ideas below:

 

  • A Garden Treasure or Scavenger Hunt
  • Hopscotch
  • Skipping games
  • Hide and Seek
  • Simon Says
  • Musical Statues
  • Garden Cricket
  • Jacks
  • Marbles

 

* remember your social distancing guidelines.

How will the miles be tracked?

Your distance will be automatically tracked via Strava. 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. Make sure your Strava is set to "Everyone" so we can read your profile and post your fitness activity to your page whilst you are completing your challenge! 

 

Please note: Your training miles will be added to your online fundraising page unless you set your activity to private whilst training and then change to ‘Everyone’ when you are doing your challenge miles. See more here.

 

Update your miles manually with Strava

If you are unable to use GPS when walking around your house and garden for example, once you have downloaded Strava (free app) you will be able to add your mileage as a manual activity after you have completed the event. Just press the cross icon in the top left corner of the main page on Strava, then select manual activity. 

 

Unable to connect to Strava

We will set up a form and include a link on an email for you to advise the mileage you have completed after the event.

 

Once your challenge is complete we will send an online certificate and your well deserved medal will follow in the post.

 

Making the most of our SunWalk with our DIY Festival KIT

Keep your eyes peeled for all the fun activities for you and your family to enjoy.

A link will be emailed once you have entered giving you access to all the fun items to download.

Walking Etiquette 

It is important to follow the Government Guidelines.

Walking Etiquette
 

Be kind to others whilst out walking, just follow this simple code;

  1. Aim to keep to your side of the road and to avoid others that are walking.
  2. If you see someone walking, running or cycling towards you on the same side of the street, a simple hand signal ahead of getting too close, and you can agree who will cross over the road.
  3. If it is not possible to cross over or avoid the person coming towards you, stand back in a driveway or as far back as possible and let the other person go past, unless they stop and signal you to go forward.


Be kind… Be considerate… Be safe!
