UPDATE: The BB Staff Team managed to walk, run, cycle and swim 2367 miles during October - enough to complete two full loops between Felden, Carronvale and Newport and get 2/3 of the way around a third loop!

Support the BB Staff Team on our #Walktober Challenge as we virtually travel 889 miles between three regional HQs!

October is a special month for The Boys' Brigade. We celebrate the birthday of this organisation on 4th October, and we also celebrate the birthday of our founder on the 27th. Both these days symbolise the BB's innovation, creativity and resilience. This October, the Staff Team at The Boys' Brigade is celebrating those qualities by taking part in our #Walktober Challenge.

The days are getting shorter, colder and wetter; and the temptation for the staff working at home to reach for a biscuit is becoming increasingly greater than the temptation to get outdoors for some exercise!

As such, the Staff Team will walk, run, cycle and even swim 889 miles - the equivalent distance of a loop between our regional HQs at Carronvale, Felden and Newport, and we will be raising funds for The Boys' Brigade's work with children and young people.

Why donate to The Boys' Brigade?
