The First Virtual Big Red London Bridge Walk
As you all know our traditional Big Red London Bridge Walk was one of the many mass participation events that had to be cancelled due to the global pandemic. With different times requiring different solutions we decided to adapt to the new normal and instead of postponing the Bridge Walk, we are pleased to invite you to our first corona-friendly Virtual Big Red Bridge Walk.
The eight iconic bridges that you would pass on the Big Red London Bridge Walk are:
- Waterloo Bridge
- Millennium Bridge
- London Bridge
- Tower Bridge
- Southwark Bridge
- Blackfriars Bridge
- Hungerford Bridge
- Westminster Bridge
You can measure the distance with your smart phone, using one of the many available apps (such as Google maps, MapMyWalk, Walkmeter, Fitbit, etc.), or a good old fashioned pedometer. If you are a planner you can decide on the exact route in advance, or just wing it and see where the path takes you.
To help you with your challenge and fundraising we will provide you with a fundraising pack, including a welcome letter, fundraising tips, sponsorship form, social media post templates and a T-shirt.
If you don’t require a T-shirt, we can send you all the the materials via email.
Show your support for our bleeding community and sign up today! We are excited to see who can take the most original bridge picture, who completes the route in the shortest time and who chooses the most scenic route. You don’t even have to do the walk in London so anyone and everyone can join in wherever you are!
There is no registration fee if you choose our printable pack, and a £6 registration fee for a physical pack including a T-shirt to cover our basic costs.
There is no minimum sponsorship, and every penny raised will help us to continue to provide our vital services, including our Newly Diagnosed Family Weekends, our Youth Camps, our Women’s Awareness Programme, Ageing Conference, Service of Thanksgiving and Remembrance, and advocating for improved treatment and care.
We will also have a prize draw for anyone who raises £150 or more, and a prize for the most original social media post from your walk.
