Registration now open for Penny Brohn UK's charity walkPosted on: 09 Sep 2020
The Bristol-based charity is going remote with this year's Stomp fundraiser.
Penny Brohn UK has officially opened registrations for this year's Stomp, a sponsored walk organised to raise funds for the ongoing support of people living with cancer.
With the format slightly tweaked this year in line with COVID-safety guidelines, participants will be able to choose between walking a total of 40 miles during October or taking part in a one-off walk in their social bubble on Wednesday 11 October.
To get involved, all you need to do is sign up via the Penny Brohn website.
There, you can pick a challenge, and get to work fundraising ahead of your chosen challenge.
Launched in 2017, Penny Brohn UK's Stomp has become a staple of the charity's fundraising programme, regularly attended by hundreds of supporters from across Bristol and beyond.
Under usual circumstances, the group walking route takes participants from the starting point in Millenium Square, down the river and underneath the Clifton Suspension Bridge. The route then takes walkers along the Avon Gorge towards Penny Brohn's National Centre in Pill.
Plans have been adapted this year amid an ongoing ban on large public gatherings. So, this year, Penny Brohn asks that social bubbles stomp one four-mile route of their choice on Wednesday 11 October, or walk a total distance of 40 miles during the month of October.
Added to the event in celebration of 40 years of Penny Brohn, the latter month-long challenge can be tackled over a week, or stretched out with a 1.3-mile walk every day. It's totally up to you as to how you approach it!
This year's Stomp is more vital than ever in raising money to allow Penny Brohn to continue supporting people living with cancer.
The coronavirus crisis has had a huge impact on the charity and its ability to fundraise through events, which has seen their donations drop significantly.
In signing up for and taking part in this year's Stomp, you'll be raising money for one of the UK's leading cancer care charities and ensuring they can continue to provide a range of services for people across the South West.
Upon registering, you'll receive a Penny Brohn Stomp t-shirt and a sponsorship pack to enable you to raise as much money as possible prior to the event.
