Trek Kilimanjaro...from home! With Child Bereavement UK

To provide some light relief for families coping with being at home during lockdown, Child Bereavement UK are launching an exciting fundraising event that the whole family can get involved in.

They are challenging families to ‘trek’ to the summit of Kilimanjaro without even leaving the house!  This imaginative challenge will see participants keep active, work as a team and keep up their spirits while stuck indoors.  

Taking part is simple. On your own or as a family, just complete 128,263 steps over 30 days – that’s the average number of steps you need to take to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. 

You can take your steps in your living room, around the kitchen, in the garden, as part of your daily outdoor exercise, or just on the spot! It’s the perfect way to get some exercise while everyone is having to isolate.  

All we ask is that you register for the event by donating £10 to Child Bereavement UK, giving you access to email tips and information on your journey and landmarks on your route, as well as support from our fundraising team who will keep you motivated throughout the challenge. If you want to, you can boost your fundraising by asking family and friends to sponsor you. 

Child Bereavement UK are a charity that supports families and educates professionals both when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, and when a child is facing bereavement.

Your fundraising will help their bereavement support practitioners to continue supporting bereaved children, young people and families via the Helpline and telephone sessions at this difficult time.
