Since 1891 we have been changing the lives of babies, children, young people and families across the North East. To help celebrate our 130th anniversary we’re inviting our supporters to take on our special 130km route to virtually complete the distance of the iconic Hadrian’s Wall to raise much needed funds.
The 130km length of the Hadrian's Wall Virtual Challenge is the ideal route to mark our special anniversary in your choice of dates, location and time! Be it a regular run in your local park, a weekly walk to clock up the kilometres, or a cycling your way to the end of the virtual Wall, you can choose to do it in a week, over a month or throughout the year to complete the challenge.
You can sign up for free, and raise as much or as little as you like - all monies raised through the challenge helping babies, children and young people in their families, schools and communities.
Through Give Penny you can set up your own online fundraising page, and to get you started we’ve created template pages for if you’re choosing to walk, run, or cycle the route, which you can find below under The Challenges section.
Sadly due to the impact of Covid-19 our support is needed more than ever at a time when our fundraising events and activities have postponed due to the pandemic.
Our friendly team will be here to help you throughout your challenge and will support you every step (or pedal!) of the way. We will celebrate virtual milestones you reach on the Wall as you clock up your kilometres with virtual postcards as you reach iconic milestones to help you celebrate your progess. And we're here to provide fundraising inspiration and encouragement, and most importantly to say a huge thank you for your support!
