Miles that Matter 21

Why we need your help

Experts estimate that each year around 250,000 pregnancies end in miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy in the UK. This figure suggests that around 21,000 pregnancies will be lost in the 31 days of July alone.

The Miscarriage Association would like to spend the month of July reflecting on this figure by raising awareness of the issues surrounding pregnancy loss, signposting people to the services we offer, and raising funds to ensure that we can continue to be there for those that need us most.

We'd like you to set your own challenge based on this estimated statistic: perhaps you'd like to run 21 miles, cycle 210 miles, walk 21,000 steps during the month, take on a 21 mile hike, a 2.1 mile family ramble, swim 21 lengths, or even design a 21 item obstacle course in your garden.

You could set up your own team event, for example, a socially distanced sponsored walk for 21 friends and family, or get together with 21 friends for yoga in the park, if the regulations in your area permit this, or if you aren’t able to take on an activity challenge you could think about organising a zoom pub quiz with 21 questions, or baking 21 cakes to sell to friends and family. 

You’re welcome to set up your page and share it with your family and friends in advance, but please don’t start your actual choice of activity until the beginning of July.  It can really help to inspire and motivate you to know that you’re part of a wider team all working together to achieve a common goal.

Whatever you decide, please link your event to the overall team event here, so we can cheer you on from afar!

Thank you for your support.
