THE BIG SUMMER WALK 2020
Starts on: 15/06/2020
THE BIG SUMMER WALK
- A fantastic summer challenge for all the family
- It’s completely FREE to register. All we ask is that you put your best foot forward and raise as much money as possible for Manx charity Junior Achievement
- The challenge is to walk or jog a total of 100km between 15th June and 7th September, all at your own pace
- Combine all your small walks or runs together to complete the distance by 7th September, 2020
- This event has kindly been sponsored by Chase Wealth Solutions
Why 100km? In October 2020 a team of people from the Isle of Man should have participated in the El Camino charity trek (100km in 5 days) to raise £20,000 for Junior Achievement. Due to the current pandemic the trek will be cancelled for this year.
Like many charities our fundraising has been impacted during the pandemic. By supporting Junior Achievement, you will enable us to continue our work with more than 5,000 children across the Island to help them to develop the skills they will need to get a job or start their own business once they leave education

TRACKING YOUR STEPS
Many iPhone’s and Android’s will have a health app already installed, or you can download many of the free walking/fitness apps available such as MapMyFitness or Strava, which track and record your activity.
Connect these to your social media page to show people how far you have walked and encourage sponsorship. Use the hashtag #100KforJA to keep us up to date with your progress.
