Walk off the excesses of Christmas, and push away those January blues with this new event from WheelPower, the national charity for Wheelchair Sport. They gave us the following update
In January 2021 we are launching the very first ‘WheelPower Winter Walk & Push’ as we all look to start the new year as we mean to go on, by doing some activity and helping boost our mental and physical health and wellbeing.
You will have the whole month to complete your challenges and it is up to you what you set the target distance as. Whether you want to push for 1 mile, walk a 5-mile route in one day, push for 20 miles over a fortnight, or walk 1 mile a day for the whole month, it’s entirely up to you!
Whatever you chose to do, WheelPower will be here to support you every step and roll along the way. Tell us what you are planning, share your stories with your friends & families and send us some social media updates en route and we will be there to cheer you on.
We are asking everyone who takes part in January to set up a fundraising page for your respective challenges. These links can then be easily shared and will help us to raise as much money as possible for disabled people throughout the UK. 2020 has been an incredibly tough year for our charity as we saw a 50% loss in income, so now more than ever, every single penny you can raise for WheelPower will even more appreciated.
For all those fundraisers out there, we have some extra motivation for you! If you are able to raise or donate over £15 you will receive your very own WheelPower t-shirt!
Start 2021 by doing something amazing for charity and walk and push your way into supporting disabled people throughout the UK to get active this new year.
