This September, we're asking you to walk, cycle, run or even wing walk ‘Miles for Momentum’. It couldn't be simpler - you choose when, where and how, and we'll support you every step of the way. By taking part in this active challenge, you’ll be doing something incredible for children facing cancer and other life-challenging conditions. 

How to get involved 

  • Decide whether you want to hike, run or cycle and choose a target number of miles to cover throughout Childhood Cancer Awareness Month this September.
  • Set up your online fundraising page through either justgiving or virgin money giving to describe what you’re doing and why - then share with everyone you know! It only takes a few minutes to set up and is the quickest and simplest way to raise funds from your Miles for Momentum Challenge.
  • Complete your challenge throughout September. Remember, whether you choose to stroll a mile around your local park in fancy dress, tackle an epic ultra-marathon, or something in between, it’s completely up to you. 
  • Share pics of your progress on social media – please tag us in @momentumcharity and use the hashtag #MilesForMomentumCharity.
  • We’ll support you every step of the way and when your challenge is complete, we’ll send you a huge thank you and personalised certificate to celebrate your achievements.
