Big Steps for Miniature Lives

Why we need your help

Welome to the Big Steps for Miniature Lives campaign

We are very excited to launch our very first #BigStepsForMiniatureLives fundraising event! Just click 'Start Fundraising' on this page to create your own fundraising page. #BigStepsForMiniatureLives

How can I get involved?

It's simple! Set your own step target for the month of June, pop your trainers on and off you go! Whether you walk 1,000 steps or 1 million steps (that would be pretty impressive!), it's a fantastic opportunity to get some fresh air and spend time as a family whilst raising money for equipment, training and resources for our incredible Neonatal Units!

We have outlined several suggestions on how to choose your step goal:

  • The adult recommendation of 10,000 steps a day, totalling 300,000 steps across June
  • The total steps it would take to walk from the Royal Cornwall Hospital to Gloucester Royal Hospital totalling a whopping 368,000 steps
  • One family walk every day, whether that be around the block, to the park or along the beach (don't forget to stop for ice cream!)

We recognise that fundraising can take time and effort, so if you would love to take part, but don't have the time to fundraise, we suggest a donation of £10 per adult or £5 per child taking part, which you can make on this page.

How to set up my fundraising page?

  • Click 'Start Fundraising' on this page
  • Log in or sign up for your Virgin Money Giving account
  • Click either 'Individual' or 'Team' under 'Create a new fundraising page'
  • When asked "What are you doing to raise money?", share the number of steps you will be taking
  • Scroll past the suggested events and select 'Doing something else?'
  • When asked 'When are you doing it?' enter the start date of 1st June 2021
  • Click 'Create my page'

You can now bring your page to life, by sharing your step goal, setting a fundraising target, adding photos and sharing your story.

Good luck, and don't forget to share your Fundraising page to your social media accounts so your friends and family can support your achievements!
