Walking Home For Christmas
Your school could take part in Walking Home For Christmas - Walking With The Wounded’s campaign to serve those who served us by organising a walk to raise money this Christmas. You encourage pupils to walk home (supported by parents depending on age), walk to a local landmark or go the distance within your school grounds. Find out more by visiting our Walking Home For Christmas page.
An Evening of Courage
Invite parents, pupils and teachers to a evening with a veteran who has been supported by Walking With The Wounded. Our beneficiaries have shown courage, character and commitment to overcome adversity and will share their inspiring journey in an effort to support others on theirs.
Balmoral Cairn Chaser
The Balmoral Cairn Chaser takes place at our 2018 Balmoral Challenge, presented by Artemis, in Her Majesty's Scottish back garden. This physically and mentally challenging orienteering event is especially for young people attached to a Combined Cadet Force unit. There are places for 30 teams of up to four people per team. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
Boiled Egg and Soldiers Breakfast
Turn breakfast into an event! Your school could hold a breakfast event on any day of the year to raise funds for our servicemen and women, or perhaps you could use the event to mark a pertinent date:
1 March – World Book Day
12 March – Commonwealth Day
9 June 2018 – Head of the British Armed Forces Her Majesty The Queen’s birthday
30 June 2018 – Armed Forces Day
11 November 2018 – Armistice Day and Centenary of the end of World War I
For young people 17 years +
Do you have a school running club or one or two ambitious pupils who could tackle a 10k or half marathon for the cause? Walking With The Wounded has places in half marathons around the country, including the iconic Great North Run. Email email@example.com to find out more.
Three legged day
Could you spend a day being supported by one of your friends? The ‘disability’ of being tied together and having to learn to walk in a different way reflects the injuries that some of the people Walking With The Wounded helps face and the teamwork and co-operation required to succeed in this challenge mirrors that of our injured service men and women in their own personal endeavours to rebuild their lives. Your school could organise a single race or extend the challenge to an entire break time, morning or day!
Serve up a memorable mental challenge for your pupils or staff to build confidence and inspire donations by allowing us to rig up an abseil from a school building. We can arrange for a pre-abseil motivational talk before they muster the confidence and trust to step over the edge. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
Make up an original route in your local area, go coast to coast, explore Britain or challenge yourselves to further afield during a half term or the summer break. Be inspired by looking at events we’ve run in the past and consider rolling relays to cover distances in shorter timeframes, accommodate a range of abilities and promote teamwork among your pupils, while increasing the number of fundraisers taking part. Email email@example.com to find out more.
