Take part to Win two Return Flights to India or a TrailblazersGo Experience!
Help us virtually walk the 8000km (12,106,000 steps) from Scotland to Hyderabad in India to raise money and show the girls we support in Hyderabad that their lives matter.
In Hyderabad there are 28,000 children living on the streets, the same number as all the nursery and primary school children in the City of Edinburgh. Our Indian partners need funds to continue to rescue, care for, educate and empower girls so they can decide their own futures. SLA needs your support to help these vulnerable girls.
During the month of June, we want you to cover a distance of 10km (15,133 steps) or more which will contribute towards our aim to travel the equivalent distance from Scotland to Hyderabad.
You choose how to challenge yourself; you set the date, the place, the pace and the distance. You can walk, jog, run, swim, cycle hop, skip or jump the distance! You decide if your walk to work is part of the challenge or if that extra run at the weekend goes towards your target. If you are feeling brave you can do the distance in one go or alternatively, add up lots of smaller distances to make your total.
