Children’s charity NSPCC has launched Run30, a fundraising challenge to tackle in June.
To take part, register on the NSPCC website and donate £30, ask family and friends to sponsor you, and run or walk 30km throughout the month.
The 30km can be divided as you wish, for instance you could run 1km a day, or split the distance into bigger chunks.
The charity encourages participants to set a fundraising target of £50, and suggests joining a virtual team to raise even more.
Donations will be used to help finance the NSPCC’s vital work.
“We’ve seen a surge in calls from children worried about the coronavirus – feeling anxious, scared, even trapped,” said an NSPCC spokesman. “Sadly, home isn’t a safe place for every child, but Childline can be their lifeline.
“We’ve had to adapt quickly to keep our service running, and make sure we’re still here for children. Will you help us be here tomorrow, and the next day?
“It’s amazing what we can do together. If we raise £30k, we could run Childline for a day.”
