One of our incredible volunteers ⭐ Sarah ⭐ has signed up to take part in the Local Landmark Challenge run to raise money for GRL 🏃♀️ and is looking for socially distant running buddies to train with her – could this be you?
Like so many charities at the moment we are facing financial challenges as a result of the current situation, with a drop in events and grant fundraising. We are 100% committed to adapting how we engage with our communities to this current online working world, and to developing our programming so that we can be there for our young people during – and after – this challenging time. 🌱🌱🌱
To do this we need to fundraise to replace lost income – and this is where you come in!
Could you join Sarah in a socially-distanced 5K+ run to raise some funds to support our work with young people? Some of you may have already dusted off your running shoes to get in your daily dose of exercise, or if you’ve been looking for an excuse to do so, then now is your chance!
You’ll have until the 3rd May 2020 to complete your chosen distance so if you would like to take part, there’s no time like the present to get stuck in! 🏃♀️🤸
“The Local Landmarks Challenge is a solo, virtual run, around your local landmarks to earn your exclusive Landmarks medal. Your local landmarks could be anything from your local church, castle, park, statue or even post-box. The challenge is open to everyone and distances over 5km qualify for the challenge. You can run your total distance over multiple runs and multiple days – the challenge doesn’t have to be completed in one go. The Local Landmarks Challenge is open until the 3rd May 2020.”
Distances over 5k qualify for the challenge and you can run the total distance over multiple runs and multiple days. The challenge doesn’t have to be completed in one go.
LLC have partnered up with the running app ‘Strava’ so you can track your runs and encourage other GRL runners on!
