Our annual corporate supporter event, Together we Trek, takes place on 14 September 2018. This year, we want everyone to get involved; whether you live near or far, whether you are a corporate supporter, individual or a family. Join us by taking on your own 22 mile trek the weekend of 14 September – your trek, your way. #TWTMyWay

We know that not everyone can make it to our Together we Trek event this year, where we will trek 22 miles through
Wiltshire at night. So, we want to bring the trek to you. Get outside and do your own 22 mile trek! You can join up with friends and family and choose your own route, and you can do it all in one day or choose to break it up over the weekend (for example: 11 miles Saturday, 11 miles Sunday). For those busy individuals you can even work it in to your regular routine: 22 miles is roughly equivalent to 44,000 steps, so aim to walk that many steps over the weekend. Your trek, your way.

How does it work?

  1. Plan your trek: We want you to join Together we Trek no matter where you are by trekking 22 miles on the weekend of 14 September. You can trek on your own or with a group of friends or family. You can map out a route and do it all in one day, split the miles over a couple of days, or just aim for 44,000 steps over the weekend.
  2. Sponsorship: There is no registration fee for this event. All we ask is that you help us support seriously ill children and their families by raising £50 as an individual, or £100 as a family. For everyone that raises over £25, you will be entered into a raffle to win a special prize!
  3. Enjoy being outside in nature and making a difference! Share your trek by tagging us on Twitter @Tog4Events, #TWTMyWay
