**April 6th Update: Thanks to our amazing fundraisers, we are thrilled to raise our goal from £13k to £15k. These additional funds will pay for key items to make the renovation even better**


Our fundraisers have to complete a half marathon (13.1 miles or 26,200 steps) or full marathon (26.2 miles or 52,400 steps) - to raise the money needed to renovate Unitas Youth Zone's outdoor space.


The challenge starts on April 1st and ends on May 17th. Everyone taking part has 47 days to complete their distance!


While our indoor facilities are state-of-the-art, our outdoor space does not meet the needs of our members. We're renovating this space to better serve young people and the local community.

Our members have given us a vision. They have asked for a space where they can grow food support the youth zones current provision. This will be adjacent to outdoor catering facilities and a flexible social area. The space can be used for events, parties, performances and even film screenings.

The re-design will support additional employability and apprenticeship opportunities. We will be especially focusing on those young people not in education, employment or training. We hope to create further opportunities to support our wider community.


There are two ways you can help...

1. Donate to this campaign and help provide our young people with a beautiful, enjoyable and empowering outdoor space, then share the campaign online to encourage more donations.

2. Get involved and fundraise yourself!

By setting up a JustGiving page and asking others to sponsor your steps, you'll raise essential funds for Unitas AND get yourself moving which will positively impact your own wellbeing. *We ask that you make a £20 donation as a registration fee.*

Fundraise as an individual or as a team: challenge your friends, kids, housemates, colleagues, gym buddies or community group to come together to transform the lives of young people.

Once you have registered, we will send a Fundraising Kit with advice and tips on how to make your fundraising successful, as well as graphics to use on social media.

Our team are on hand to support you with motivation, information, fundraising advice, and social media assets so you can share your progress.
