Take on Challenge 150; make your miles count this April.
About the event:
Challenge yourself to run, walk or jog 150 miles in the month of April and help more people live well with cancer. That’s 10,000 steps every day; the government’s recommended amount. Walk or run, take the dog and kids, walk with friends or do it alone. With each step you take, every penny you make, you’ll be helping to change the lives of people living with cancer.
When is it happening?
Everyday throughout April.
How do I enter?
Sign up today, just click here.
You can take on Challenge 150 wherever you like, from your local park to your back garden.
How much does it cost?
There’s no registration fee and no minimum fundraising target. Just get your miles in and start fundraising!
Why should I do it?
At Penny Brohn UK, we recognise that people affected by cancer need more than medicine to live well.
This is even more true today as life with cancer has been more frightening with the impact of the coronavirus. Many cancer patients have faced months of shielding and isolating away from their loved ones when they need them most. This has resulted in many more people experiencing anxiety and depression and why we have adapted our services so we can still be there for people affected by cancer.
Having someone to talk to can make a huge difference to someone living with cancer. We offer one-to-one counselling sessions over Zoom and group support.
The growing need for psychological and emotional support for people living with cancer means that we need even more people to fundraise for us: Challenge 150 is the perfect way for you to do this!
Together, we’ll change life with cancer. For good.
It's free to register for Challenge 150, however, we do ask that participants do their best to fundraise £100 if taking part as an individual or £250 if taking part as a team. This will help us to support more people to live well with cancer.
What if the Government advice around Coronavirus changes and I can’t leave the house to undertake this challenge?
We understand that the UK is still under certain government restrictions. We recommend that you always follow the national and local official Government advice and adhere to the restrictions in your area, when taking on this challenge.
The first thing you need to do is sign up to take part.
Your challenge is to take on 150 Miles throughout April—that’s 10,000 steps a day!
Share the news of your challenge with your friends and family and encourage them to sponsor you to raise money for Penny Brohn UK.
Once you’ve signed up to the challenge, you can raise money by asking your friends and family to sponsor you or by doing some special events along the way.
Just complete our registration form and we will send you a free t-shirt and fundraising pack. If you’d like an additional t-shirt, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your online fundraising page is the quickest and easiest way to get donations from friends and family without any money changing hands. It also means you don’t have to worry about sending us donations as your online giving page will be directly transferred to us. You can fundraise offline if you prefer, but please do let us know so we can ensure that we recognise your fundraising efforts and can give you some tailored tips.
Of course, we want to keep in touch! In the lead up to and throughout your challenge, we will be in contact regularly with any updates you need to know, so please make sure to read the emails. We’ll also give you some great tips on things like how to get in those extra steps, fundraising and staying safe whilst stepping!
Don’t worry if you didn’t receive your confirmation email welcoming you to Challenge 150. Please do make sure to check your spam or junk email folders in case it's arrived there.
If you still haven’t received your confirmation email or would just like to check that your registration has been received, please email email@example.com.
Most smart phones have a step counter on them. You could also use a tracker or a smartwatch, as they have step counters too.
The only thing that matters is that you challenge yourself. There are people of all levels of fitness doing this challenge. The important thing is that you’re doing something that challenges you. This will vary from person to person, so tailor the challenge however you like. It should be tough, but doable. You should feel satisfied when you finish it! Just do as much as you can.
No problem! Simply call our friendly events team on 01275 370 075 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes! The more the merrier! Getting friends and family involved means you can share the experience, train together and fundraise together.
We’ve got a great new system which will automatically set up a fundraising page for you when you register. You’ll receive an email with a link to your page which you can then edit with a photo, your fundraising target and your story.
We will provide you with a t-shirt to wear and we recommend you wear comfortable clothing that you can move in, dress for the weather (who knows what it’ll be doing in the UK!) and make sure you have appropriate footwear such as sturdy trainers or walking boots.
