Walk, run, swim or paddle 31 miles in support of your local hospice!

Make every mile count with our 31-day challenge!

This summer, we’re inviting you to make every mile count when you take on our 31-day challenge, A Mile A Day – Your Way, taking place throughout July or August. Whether you choose to walk, run, swim or SUP – there are no boundaries to how you can participate. From walking through the woods, or jogging along the beautiful coastline, or a paddling along a river, the choice is entirely yours. This is your journey, your pace, and your way of making a difference.

The challenge will take 31 days to complete, taking on one mile of activity each day to help raise vital funds for your local hospice. By completing the 31-mile challenge, you will cover the equivalent of walking the distance from Dawlish to Dartmouth!

This free event is open to everyone to take part in your own way, at your own pace and anywhere you choose, so, gather your friends, family, and furry companions and get ready to make a difference!
