70 Mile May

Put your best foot forward and join us for 70 Mile May

May 2021 is national walking month, so please join us in our 70 Miles in May fundraising challenge, the equivalent of walking the Isle of Wight's costal paths over the month, around 2.25 miles per day!

The challenge

Walk the equivalent of the island’s costal paths, a total of 70 miles, outdoors, over the month of May.

How to sign up

Join the fundraising campaign and set up your own fundraising page on JustGiving. To sign up simply follow the link and hit "Start fundraising".

How to track your miles

You could use your smartphone, watch or Strava or a good old map to track your miles. If you are using Strava, you can link this directly to your fundraising page (we can help set this up!) so all your walking activities will automatically post to your page, meaning your supporters can follow how you’re getting on! If you’re using your phone, watch or map, you can upload pictures and posts to your fundraising page to keep people up to date, if you wish!

Fundraising

We’ve set a fundraising target of £70, equal to £1 a mile, but this is a target not an obligation! Raise what you can, set your own personal target higher if you hit your target during the challenge, and spread the word by getting other people involved. If you want to fundraise as a team or household, you can set a group target, and complete the challenge collectively!

Once you've signed up

Once you set up your page, you’ll be invited to join a private ‘Independent Arts Fundraisers’ facebook group. Within this group you can share updates, ask for advice, and see how everyone else is getting on. The challenge will officially begin from Saturday May 1st and end Monday May 31st. All you need to do once your fundraising page is up and running is share your fundraising page with friends and family, and start walking! You can approach the challenge in the way that best suits you; you could aim to walk 2.25 miles every day of the month, or do some bigger more challenging walks every weekend to make up the milage, it’s entirely up to you.
