Big Wild Walk
About the event
Get your boots on for beavers! It’s time to walk for wildlife and show you care about the nature and climate crisis with The Wildlife Trusts’ Big Wild Walk, 25 October to 31 October.
The Wildlife Trusts are asking nature-lovers to fundraise to help raise vital money for their 30 by 30 mission that will restore at least 30% of land and sea for nature by 2030. The choice is yours to take on one of three challenges:
• Walk 30km over the Big Wild Walk week
• Walk 30km in three days
• Walk 30km in one day
If you'd prefer to create your own challenge, that's okay! You could invite the family to join in, set up a remote relay with friends or take the challenge yourself. Indoors or outdoors, front room, park or wood, treadmill or track – the choice is yours.
Sam Hockaday raised over £500 for his Wildlife Trust
"I found this was a brilliant opportunity to not only get into nature but also gave us the ability to raise money for The Wildlife Trusts directly supporting our wildlife.
We decided that we had to go big in order to raise as much as we could for the Trust. We challenged ourselves to walk 100km in a seven day period.
I would highly recommend that people take part in this challenge. It offers many things both to yourself and the natural world. It gives you the ability to explore the natural world while giving back to it."
