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

No One is Immune to Climate Change - Banner Drop

Worthing Extinction Rebellion (XR) performed a thought and action provoking banner drop at 6am this morning on Worthing Pier. XR said "The world is way off track to stop run away climate and ecological breakdown. Worthing is a seaside town and sea rise levels are predicted to flood many areas. We must Act Now."

Link here: https://coastal.climatecentral.org/map/11/-0.3506/51.0052/?theme=sea_level_rise&map_type=coastal_dem_comparison&contiguous=true&elevation_model=best_available&forecast_year=2030&pathway=rcp85&percentile=p95&return_level=return_level_1&slr_model=kopp_2014

Worthing XR state that most Paris Climate Agreement pledges have been broken. "We will pass 1.5' warming in the next five years and the governments own Climate Change Committee report predicts a 4' warming by 2100. A world not fit for habitation by any living species."

They urge that the catastrophic effects on human society and the natural world may spiral out of control if the Climate and Ecological Emergency is not addressed in time, including
⦁ Biodiversity Loss
⦁ Sea level rise
⦁ Desertification
⦁ Wildfires
⦁ Water shortage
⦁ Crop failure
⦁ Extreme weather

The combined result of these destabilising events will be:
⦁ Millions displaced
⦁ Disease
⦁ Increased risk of wars and conflicts
⦁ Impacts on human rights

The aim of the banner drop is to provoke thought and action amongst Worthing people because "We are in a planetary emergency. We must immediately begin improving carbon absorption, reduce emissions and stop the harm we are causing to the natural world." They state that "The task before us is daunting but we have proved big changes can be made during the Covid19 pandemic. We must Act Now."
