We’ve signed up to St Mungo’s TakeTheLead dog walking challenge to help end homelessness.
What is the challenge?
“Take the Lead is a virtual challenge that you can complete anywhere, in your own time and at your own pace. We are asking you to team up with your dog and pledge to walk the equivalent of a marathon (26.2 miles) between 1 and 31 August. This contributes to an overall target of 4,266 miles – one for every person found rough sleeping in England last year. You can achieve this by walking 1 mile every day for 26 days in August, this will take about 15 minutes a day. Or you could walk 2 miles on 13 days in August, this will be about 30 minutes every other day.” (words by St Mungo’s)
“St Mungo’s outreach teams go out each night to meet people who are homeless and to help them off the streets. With 17 outreach teams we are one of the largest providers of outreach services in the country. Each night we offer a bed and support to more than 2,850 people across the south and south west. We believe that people can – and do – recover from the issues that cause homelessness. We work to prevent homelessness and support people at every step of their recovery from homelessness.” (from St Mungo’s website)
Every supporter who signs up and pledges to raise at least £50 will receive a St Mungo’s t-shirt, dog bandana and compostable dog waste bags.
At the end of the challenge, if you have hit your fundraising target, you will receive a doggy goody bag!
