376 Mile Make a Wish Walk

376 Mile Make a Wish Walk

Between January 19th and February 15th, the Results Driven Marketing Team will be embarking on a 376 mile sponsored walk to raise money for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Make-A-Wish UK grants magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. Granting their wish provides seriously ill children with hope for the future, strength to cope, and resilience to fight their condition. They’re given quality time away from the daily realities of living with their condition and given the chance to make magical memories they can treasure forever – whatever their future may hold. We want to transform the lives of 1,000 children this year by granting their One True Wish! https://www.make-a-wish.org.uk/
 

Total raised so far – £510

Challenge Day 1 – Wednesday 20th January

 

What a day to start a challenge, torrential rain but as the saying goes, “there is no time like the present”, and if we are to get these miles completed by the 15th February then we’ve got to get out in all weather.

 

I will introduce us as we go on today’s walk, we had Iain the Director of Results Driven Marketing his wife Laura, their children Luke and Emily and of course the office dog Murray.

Day 1 Distance Covered – 3.91 miles

 

Total Distance Covered – 3.91miles

 

Distance Remaining – 372.09 miles

 

Challenge Day 2 – Thursday 21st January

An evening walk today from Iain and Laura pushed the distance covered on by over 7 miles.

 

It was extremely windy along the sea front but they got wrapped up and gave up two hours of their evening to raise donations.

 

The rest of the team are due to start their walks from day three onwards, so we should start to see the miles covered rack up.

 

We are committed to covering the full distance before February 15th and sincerely appreciate all donations.

 

All charities are under extreme pressure at the moment due to the pandemic and every little really helps them.

It’s absolutely fantastic to see the team giving up part of their weekend to support the fantastic Make-a-Wish Foundation, which is what this is all about.

Laura also got out on Saturday afternoon and with that being the case Murray the Boxer had to get in on the action.

Laura and Murray covered 6.33 miles and by the looks of his foamy face, Murray had a great time.

Iain covered 6.35 miles on Saturday afternoon too, which makes this the most miles covered in a day so far.

Her route included a walk along Whitley Bay sea front which looks fantastic at that time of the morning.
