Shropshire Charities Team Up for Move As One

As a direct result of COVID-19, many local charities have missed out on thousands of pounds of income, normally generated through local fundraising and events. This will affect each charity in the long term and prevent them from delivering the vital support and work they regularly provide.

Move as One aims to provide much needed funds to four very worthwhile and local causes. These are Shrewsbury Town In The Community, Little Rascals Foundation, Hope House Children’s Hospices, SAHA Football Club. Our simple mission is to ensure that these charities can continue to survive and provide for the local area throughout and after the crisis by raising that lost income. 

Move as One is an exercise based event that will launch on 1st June which asks participants to run, cycle, or walk to contribute towards a collective goal of 2788 miles; this is equivalent to the distance from Montgomery Waters Meadow to each one of the stadiums in the English Football League One!

Whether you are a hardened fitness enthusiast or taking part in a challenge for the first time, Move as One is for you! Taking part is easy, simply complete your run-cycle-walk in your own time, at your own pace, log your miles and send your results to us. We will then add your miles to our group total. Remember, every mile counts! So please do send us your score, not matter how big or small.

We ask that all who wish to take part make a suggested donation of £10.00 via our Crowdfunder. Download a run-cycle-walk tracker and start moving!

For the more competitive participant, we also have leader-boards showing our furthest mover. Individual and team leader-boards are available. For more information on these please email [email protected]
