Take on a virtual walking challenge to support our work with young carers

Walking 4 Norfolk is a county-wide challenge, first started during lockdown 2020 by James Bagge and supported by Norfolk Community Foundation.

It’s back for 2021 and challenges teams of up to 5 people to virtually walk the distance from Norwich Cathedral to Paris’ famous Notre Dame. This time you can choose to walk for The Benjamin Foundation with 100% of your fundraising supporting our young carers groups across Norfolk.

Your fundraising will create stronger, empowered individuals who finally feel supported to cope with their unique challenges.

The challenge starts 12 May 2021 and you can sign up directly on the Walking 4 Norfolk website https://walking4norfolk.com/register/

You’ll be linked to a virtual map and leaderboard and be able to give information about your team – don’t forget to choose an awesome team name!

How to get your fundraising started:

Please also start a fundraising sponsorship page on GivePenny so you can start raising money to support local Young Carers supported by The Benjamin Foundation.

GivePenny links with apps like Strava to help you track your progress. Using the pledge by mile feature, your supporters can sponsor you every step of the way and you’ll find it even easier to raise money to help young carers.

It’s free to take part and both Walking4Norfolk and The Benjamin Foundation event teams will support you every step of the way.

“Abbie in particular has blossomed from having the group interaction. To see how her confidence and self-esteem has grown week on week is just amazing and so heart-warming.” (Rachel, Young Carers Support Worker)
