The charity’s aim is for all participants to collectively walk, run or wheel 10,000km, the distance between Dublin, via London to Cape Town. As the building blitz cannot take place this year, it is a fantastic concept for those to enjoy with friends and family and raise funds to ensure no teacher or child loses out to the benefits of the Mellon Educate teacher training support programmes.

You will also be able to create and join groups of friends, local clubs or company leagues. Why not challenge your friends to see who can reach 100km the quickest, or who can do the most km in the month.

A fundraising page will automatically be created & emailed to you, we would love if you could share it on your social media so that your friends and family can support you taking on this challenge in August.
