One Million Steps!

We’d like to invite you to join us in a virtual ‘walk around the world in 80 days’.

Get fit, improve your well being and raise money to rescue vulnerable children from the fields, streets and jungles around Kisoro. My friend Greg and I have linked up with our good friends at 80 Days Global to set up this fundraiser for the Emily Collins School. So, we’re looking for as many people as possible to sign up to the challenge. I’ve set myself a target of 1 million steps in that period which is only 12,500 steps a day but you can set your own target and every step counts towards our goal.

Start Date: Monday 18th March

This is how you can get started:

1.  Register at 80 Days Global.

2.   Redeem our unique team code: 8KRNVSQC.

3.    Pay the £14.99 registration fee.

4.    Enter your miles manually or connect your mobile or compatible wearable device.

You’re all set to join our team!

For every team member who registers to take part in the challenge, 80 Days Global will donate £6 per person to The Emily Collins School. In addition, 80 Days Global has offered to match any donations/sponsorships we each receive up to a total of £1000.
