    Why am I raising money?

    Hello, it's Euan. I've been extremely fortunate to obtain a place on the 25th World Scout Jamboree in August 2023. This is is a worldwide event which happens once every 4 years, and this time will take place over 3 weeks in the SaeManGeum region of South Korea. Over 40,000 scouts will attend from all over the world to take part in initiatives focused on a global agenda, sustainable issues, and to gain greater insight into other peoples traditions and culture, in hope of further unifying the scouting movement. In order to attend, I need to raise £3000 in total to cover the cost of flights, accommodation, food, training activities and equipment.

    Challenge 550!

    The distance between London Gatwick and Seoul, South Korea is 5500 Miles. If anyone can cover that distance between now and then, please let me know! I have therefore decided to Run, Swim or Cycle 550 miles. Every mile I cover will represent 10 miles of my journey and I will regularly update you to where I am in the world over the next year. I will track it on my Strava, which you can check out here: Euan Willis Strava

    Last but not least,

    THANK YOU in advance, every contribution means the world to me (literally). Attending the WSJ2023 is the opportunity of a lifetime and I intend to document it to share the scouting world with all of you!

      550 Miles - 244 days - £780 raised! Thank you to everyone that has supported me throughout my journey. Your generosity is unmatched and has been a huge factor in helping me. With only 178 days until I fly to Korea we have achieved the 550 miles in great time. The 550 miles represented the approx 5500 miles it is from London to Seoul. I covered that mainly through running but also some cycling and walking - you can check it all out on my strava: Thanks, Euan

      50 /550 Miles, Arrived at Denmark! Thank you to everyone that has supported so far but with still over a year to go, and 500 miles! We still have a long way. As each mile represents 10 miles on my journey to South Korea, the 500 miles has taken me across the North Sea and into Denmark. Whilst I'm sure the Danes are very friendly, I won't stop long, because I will soon be in Sweden and Finland after around 175 more miles (17.5 miles of running, cycling or swimming).
