In 2019, you can join the community of runners, trekkers and cyclists who are going the extra mile in Rwanda. Challenge yourself to go the extra mile, to run, walk or cycle while experiencing the life-changing work of Compassion.
Will you take part in the ultimate endurance event and fundraise to see more children lifted out of poverty?
FUNDRAISE WITH A DIFFERENCE
10 children sponsored
Knowing the incredible impact one-to-one sponsorship has on children in poverty, we ask that you aim to find sponsors for 10 children. For every new sponsored child, your fundraising target will be reduced by £1,000. Your target starts at £10,000. That way, if you find sponsors for 10 children you've achieved your goal. Similarly, you could find 8 sponsors and £2,000 in donations and you've also reached the target! We have years of experience in fundraising so we'll give you plenty of advice and tips
