Walk For Change Campaign

Become a #WalkerForChange in 2022 and help change the lives of vulnerable children in need of support.

Inspired by our largest ever group of RideLondon cyclists and London Marathon runners, we are looking for you to get your hiking boots on, get outdoors and join our WALKERS FOR CHANGE this September.

There are two fantastic events coming up, both of which have 100km, 50km or 25km distance options – so you can pick your route and do it your way. Whichever you decide, you will enjoy exploring stunning locations, historic trails and iconic landscapes as you go. Set yourself a personal challenge, or take it on with friends, family and colleagues.

South Coast Challenge
3-4th September 2022

This route takes you along the beautiful coastal path from Eastbourne to Arundel, with Brighton as the halfway point. With almost 2,100m of climbing, this is a tough but rewarding one with incredible views as you head over the magnificent Seven Sisters and South Downs! 

Thames Path Challenge
10-11th September 2022

Take in the sites along England’s greatest river on this route from Putney through Richmond, Hampton Court, Runnymede and Windsor, with some wonderful historic scenery en-route to a riverside finish line in Henley.

HOW YOU’LL BE MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Every kilometre you cover, you will be raising money and support for children in need of change. 

Set yourself the challenge of raising £10 per km and:

£250 could train three community volunteers to become pre-school teachers, helping them to improve early childhood education for over 100 vulnerable children each year in their communities.

£500 could provide five Child Rights Club with seeds, buckets, watering cans and other gardening equipment, enabling them to set up a food garden, the profits from which pay for school fees and materials for vulnerable children in their community.

£1,000 could set up a savings and loans group and train 23 parents and guardians in community banking, business and financial skills, helping them to start their own business and earn and save a sustainable income for their families.

“As a Patron of WeSeeHope, I am delighted to support their 2022 Walk For Change campaign. What a great excuse to get outdoors, get active and try something new this year. There really is an option for everyone – whether you’re looking for a personal challenge or a corporate team builder. For a small charity with a very worthy cause, getting involved will mean you will raise vital funds and awareness, helping to impact the lives of vulnerable children in Southern and Eastern Africa. Become a #WalkerForChange in 2022; you won’t regret it.”
