Take Part in a Virtual Sponsored Run/Walk For KidsIn!
Daily exercise is one of the few respites enjoyed by people in these challenging times. Whether it’s a run or walk, being active can be hugely beneficial for both physical and mental health. But did you know you can use your daily exercise to support the physical and mental health of those less fortunate as well?
You can help KidsIn bring fun and happiness to disadvantaged children around the UK by turning your daily exercise into a “virtual” sponsored run or walk! Either as an individual or part of a team, you can set yourself a distance target to achieve over the next few weeks/months around where you live and have your friends, family, and colleagues sponsor you! The KidsIn team will help get you set up with an online sponsorship page so you can focus on smashing your goal and encouraging people to donate and support the charity!
Get creative and set yourself an ambitious target! Wanted to run a marathon but have never had the time to train properly? Why not run the distance over a few weeks around the streets where you live? Think your team can collectively run the length of the UK? Now is the time to split the distance and prove your team is up to it! If running is not your thing, don’t sweat it. Walk the distance instead!
Sign-up and start your fundraising today by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Don’t forget to keep the KidsIn team up to date with your progress by posting how you’re going on social media and tagging @KidsOut and using the hashtags #Run4KidsIn or #Walk4KidsIn!
Like many charities, KidsOut is facing unprecedented challenges with the spread of COVID 19. KidsOut has been forced to cancel or postpone all its fundraising events resulting in a loss of over £400,000. To put this into context, this income would have funded a minimum of 15,000 Fun Days out or 4,000 Toy Boxes for vulnerable children being rehomed. The charity is adapting to the situation, temporarily rebranding to “KidsIn”. The team needs your help to provide positive experiences that children can enjoy while staying indoors, as well as planning for days out to be enjoyed when the social distancing measures end!
[Please note: You should only take part in this activity if it is safe for you to do so and you are following government social distancing rules. Similarly, any teams should be collaborating remotely, and those taking part in any physical activity should be doing so alone.]
