Walk a mile every day or up to 16 miles in one day and get into action to raise money for Safer, the Bailiwick’s domestic abuse charity. We are looking for teams and individuals of any age or gender to enter this event. You could be a team of work colleagues, deputies, school mates, friends, family, or a team from your club or church, etc. You do not have to be in a team…you can go it alone to shed some pounds before Christmas and raise some pounds for Safer at the same time!
Your challenge is to walk a mile every day over the 16 Days of Action starting on 25th November and finishing on 10th December. We realise that not everyone will be able to do this, so you can do more in one day and skip a day if you want, or you can choose to get active in a different way for 16 days doing activities to challenge yourself.
A mile is around 2016 steps (depending on how long your stride is!) so you can do your mile in different ways on different days counting your steps in your lunch-time on one day or going for a walk with the dog on another. Just go the extra mile!
We are incorporating the “Walk a Mile in Their Shoes” as a group event on the first Saturday of the 16 Days of Action. This is a fun event which will be open to everyone who has signed up for the 16 Days of Action, not just the men! Grab a pair of your workmate’s wellies, your sister’s slippers, the boss’s brogues, your colleague’s court shoes, your teacher’s trainers the choice is yours! Don’t forget to ask permission to borrow them! Then walk from Salerie Corner to the Castle Emplacement with us on Saturday 26th November starting at 10am for the warm up and registration.
