#Walktober Challenge

Thursday 1st October 2020

October is a special month for The Boys’ Brigade. We celebrate the birthday of this organisation on 4th October, and we also celebrate the birthday of our founder on the 27th. Both these days symbolise the BB’s innovation, creativity and resilience. This October, the Staff Team at The Boys’ Brigade is celebrating those qualities by taking part in our #Walktober Challenge.

The days are getting shorter, colder and wetter; and the temptation for the staff working at home to reach for a biscuit is becoming increasingly greater than the temptation to get outdoors for some exercise!

As such, the Staff Team will walk, run, cycle and even swim 889 miles – the equivalent distance of a loop between our regional HQs at Carronvale, Felden and Newport, and we will be raising funds for The Boys’ Brigade’s work with children and young people.

If you would like to make a donation towards our #Walktober Challenge visit our JustGiving page at justgiving.com/fundraising/bb-walktober-challenge – all funds raised will directly support our work with children and young people.

We would love it for Companies to join us by holding your own challenge, and you could use it as an opportunity to raise funds for your year ahead. 1st Lenzie recently took part in a sponsored walk and raised over £3,000! The packs and information can be found on the Fundraising Challenge page of the website. If you would like to take part in your own route, please just email us at bbathome@boys-brigade.org.uk and we can send you your own custom graphic to share on your social media platforms.
