Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

As part of our work on the WW1 Centenary project and to support staff and student wellbeing we are holding a “World Walk Challenge” involving staff and students who, in a two-week period, will make an effort to take more steps and contribute to a virtual
walk through the British Empire.  This would require
73,762,000 steps in total.  We hope that this event will honour the generous response of the British colonies in WW1
where over half a million soldiers from the colonies lost their lives fighting for the British.  We also hope that staff and students simply make an effort to move more and think about adopting a more active lifestyle. 

The event is threefold though!  We have set ourselves a fundraising target of
£10,000 which we want to use to support the superb work that DNRC Headley Court Military Rehabilitation Centre in Epsom does for our current servicemen and women. 

To help with this we are seeking support from celebrities, Invictus Games athletes and sports personalities who will lead activities from walking, dancing and even the Haka at lunchtimes – all in a bid to increase our step count and help us meet that whopping step total! 

We are confident that the Collingwood community will do it!
