About this challenge
Ok – so talking about holidays may be a bit of a sore point at the moment, but we want to help by taking you there virtually.
Select your holiday destination & go on a virtual journey with Home-Start. Choose a city break, coastal adventure or long haul excursion!
We have selected a number of popular holiday destinations in the UK and abroad and we are challenging you to ‘travel’ the distance of your holiday destination.
• Choose you holiday destination from the map/list
• Work out how you are going to travel the distance (walk, cycle, swim, wheelchair, rowing boat or a combination, just as long as it’s not motorized)
• Start planning your journey - your virtual route, who are you going with, how are you getting there?
There are four options you can choose for your virtual trip:
1. Travel solo
2. Travel as a group/family/team and record the km’s as a team
3. Travel as a group/family/team and count each members km’s (a team of 4 walk 10km = 40km) perfect if your destination is far, far away!
4. The all-inclusive option; create a relay team – each member of the team covers a leg of the journey. This way, little people or those less able can share the journey.
So lets get packing people, don’t forget the sun cream, rubber ring and umbrella, just in case!
Join the Home-Start Strava team to track your progress and share your journey with fellow travellers. Don’t forget to send us your holiday snaps along the way! There will be a prize for the most creatively dressed travellers!
The cost is £5 for each adult taking part and children are free. Participants are encouraged to set up their own Virgin Money Giving fundraising page with a suggested minimum target of £50 to collect sponsorship. All funds raised for Home-Start Hertfordshire will go towards helping families who are struggling.
Once booked, a member of our team will be in touch with you to find out your holiday plans for your virtual challenge and will send you a challenge pack to start you off on your travels.
Alternatively, if this challenge isn’t for you why not simply make a donation to Home-Start Herts?
