Miles for Smiles Leeds

Why we need your help

We are a Leeds based Charity with one mission, to ensure #NoChildGoesWithout

We would love our Leeds Community to join us in getting active and helping us to raise funds for young families in Leeds facing poverty crisis.

 Every single mile you cover will help us raise funds for Leeds Baby Bank to enable us to support more families have a better, kinder experience.

1 in 5 children in our region live in poverty and we are on a mission to tackle:

Safe sleeping issues

Child hunger

Child hygiene issues

Can you be one of our LBBMilers?

Can you make one of our families Smile?

This August we pledge to cover 5000 miles around our beautiful Leeds city region to raise £5000 for the families in Leeds that LBB support.

You can choose your involvement and ‘bank’ your miles with us to be a part of our smilers. So far we have commitments to:

- Walk the dog a mile a day
- Up my steps to 8k steps a day
- Swap 2 work commutes a week to cycling
- Run 25k a week
- Cycle 100 miles throughout August
- 3 nursery walks/week (during school holidays)

So whatever you can pledge, goes into the bank and EVERY mile counts!
