100km in May

Will you challenge yourself to walk 100km in May and help us ensure that every family on a low income can give their children a healthy diet packed full of fruit & veg?

The Challenge 

We’re challenging you to complete 100km within the month however you like – walking, running, cycling or swimming; it’s completely up to you! We know 100km can sound like a lot. To break it down a little, it’s just over 3km (or 2 miles) a day. Why not get the whole family involved or get your friends to join you?

The sponsorship money you raise through taking on the challenge will help us be there for families, supporting them to buy fresh fruit & veg for their children.

Will you take on the challenge? 

The challenge is open to everyone, and it’s free to join in. 

How to take part 

Getting started is easy; follow these simple steps: 

  1. If you’re up for the 100km in May challenge, please email Eloise at fundraising@alexandrarose.org.uk, and she’ll send out your challenge pack via email.  
  1. The easiest way to get involved is to join our Enthuse fundraising page. You can create your own Enthuse fundraising page to collect sponsorship money, post photos of your progress, and share your success with everyone else taking part.
  1. Start raising money! Ask your friends, family and work colleagues to support you and send them the link to your fundraising page.
  1. Keep track of your kilometres by filling in your total daily distance at the end of each day on your distance tracker sheet – included in your challenge pack. We also recommend Strava, which is a great app for tracking your challenge and can link to your Enthuse fundraising page.

We can’t fight food poverty without your help! 

We believe that every family should be able to afford to eat a healthy diet packed full of fruit & veg. That’s why we launched our Rose Vouchers for Fruit & Veg Project, helping to make this belief a reality. 

By taking on the 100km in May Challenge and fundraising for Alexandra Rose Charity, you can help children have the healthiest possible start in life. Every step you take and every pound you raise will make a difference. 

If you have any questions about the challenge, you can email Eloise at fundraising@alexandrarose.org.uk

Is there a fundraising target? 
We have no minimum or maximum amount that we would like you to raise. From our point of view, no matter how much money you raise, it will make a huge difference to the families you work with, and every penny raised will help fund our Rose Vouchers for Fruit & Veg Projects.

How do I pay in my fundraising? 
If you’ve created an Enthuse fundraising page, then the money will automatically be paid into our charity bank account once you’ve finished your fundraising, so you won’t need to do a thing.

Can I raise money on another online platform like JustGiving? 
We would prefer you not to use JustGiving as we currently can’t claim back Gift Aid from donations made via that platform.
Do I have to walk my kilometres, or can I jog, run, climb or dance? 
It’s up to you! We think most people will walk the kilometres, but if you want to complete them a different way, then go for it! Just be sure to post your progress updated on your Enthuse fundraising page so everyone can cheer you on, and we can see how you’re doing too! 
What if I don’t complete the challenge? 
The only thing that matters is that you challenge yourself. Do as much as you can. Every kilometre helps. 
Can I start late or early? 
Of course! So long as you complete 100k in 31 days, it doesn’t matter if you start early, late or need to miss a day in May. 
Do I have to prove I’ve completed the challenge? 
You don’t need to prove you’ve completed the challenge – we trust you! You can post videos, pictures and updates on your Enthuse fundraising page, or on social media and tag us so we can see and congratulate you on your progress. Sharing updates is also a great way to show those who have sponsored you that you’re committed to completing the challenge. 
What is Strava? 
Strava is a social network for recording and tracking activity. When you complete an activity (walk, run, bike ride etc.), it goes to your Strava feed, where your friends and followers can see what you’ve been doing and also share their own races and workouts.
