Go The Distance with Turning Tides!

Challenge yourself on World Homelessness Day 10/10/20 and Go the Distance for homeless men and women. Anytime, Anywhere, Anything!
On World Homelessness Day – 10.10.2020 – take part in Go the Distance virtually, choosing an activity of your choice, in a location of your choice. A challenge tailor made for you that brings huge benefit to others. This new look event seeks to get you out and about, either running, walking, swimming, cycling, dancing – or whatever activity you choose – to challenge yourself and GO THE DISTANCE for homeless men and women.

Why not use this date to motivate your distance; for example, cycling 20 miles, running 10 kilometres, or use the goal of 10 or 20 to push your limits and achieve an important target. Your challenge might be a significant personal goal over a period of time – to lose 10 pounds or complete 10 walks to improve your health. Going the distance for others can also mean going the distance for yourself.

On they day, we will be offering some online activities to spur you on, warm ups, ‘cheer points’ which you can plan your route past, tunes to get you to your goal, medals for all participants and rewards for reaching fundraising targets or excelling with the challenge. This event is open to people of all ages wherever you are to join in with the fun. Anytime, Anywhere, Anything!

Target sponsorship:

£85 per adult, £43 per child
£170 per family
For every £85 raised, we can give one day of emergency support to as many as 30 homeless men and women
