We are aiming to cycle (or walk) 1000 miles by the end of June, to contribute towards Guideposts' Global Challenge. It will give us an extra incentive to get out regularly and improve our fitness. If you are able to support us and give something to Guideposts, it will give us even more encouragement :-).
Our aim is a combined 250 miles a month to reach this target. As we're starting out the sun is shining and there's promise of spring - but no doubt there will be grey and rainy days ahead so we will need something to keep us going.
I (Vanessa) have worked at Guideposts for the last 6 months, and have been so impressed by the difference they make to people's lives. I'm really glad to be able to contribute to it in my work, and we are excited to be part of this challenge.
The Guideposts Global Challenge is for the Guideposts Community as a team to walk the distance around the world (roughly 25K miles). These miles can be racked up through walking, running, cycling, swimming, or anything else. It's a great challenge that everyone can be part of, setting their own goals no matter their level of fitness or mobility.
Please give us a sponsor to keep us motivated. Anything you can contribute will be massively appreciated.
It's time to get moving!
Vanessa and Steve xx

More about Guideposts
Guideposts is a UK based charity working with people and local communities, to help them access the support, opportunities and skills they need to overcome social challenges, improve their wellbeing and change their lives.
We run a range of services that are focused on helping people to achieve their potential regardless of their circumstances. We connect people together so that they can experience the joy that comes from friendship, activity, learning, purpose and occupation. We love what we do and we love seeing people flourish.
Many of the people we support come from the most disadvantaged groups in our society, including children and adults with additional needs and disabilities, people with mental health problems, older people with dementia and other neuro-degenerative conditions, and the families or carers of all these groups. We believe that all people should be equally valued and have an equal chance to live the best life possible, that is why we do what we do.
Together we are the Guideposts community, helping each other to achieve better wellbeing.
