Anniversary Challenges

To celebrate our 50th Anniversary, we will be undertaking five challenges, one for each decade of ministry amongst young people. We are looking for people to join us and help to raise money that will be added to the Legacy Fund. The five challenges take in a variety of activities. Everyone who takes part will be given fundraising support, access to an online sponsorship page and offline forms. Most importantly, your support will help us see more young people’s lives changed by Jesus. If you can’t do one of our challenges, why not take on one of your own. Let us know what you want to do via the form, and we will send you a free fundraising pack.

The Big Row: 15th June 2024

We started in 1974, so we are going to row 197.4km in 24 hours! There will be no water involved, as it will be completed on row machines. The distance will be completed as a team. This means you can join us for half and hour, the whole 24 hours, or somewhere in between. We may have enough of us to finish it a lot quicker than 24 hours!

The River Walk: 20th July 2024

This 15 mile walk from Tewkesbury Abbey to Gloucester Cathedral follows the River Severn. It is a fairly gentle route that can be comfortably completed in a day.

The Big Ride: 10th August 2024

Cycling challenges have been a big thing for us over the years. This year we are staying local with a one day challenge. The ride will feature a 100 mile route, but it is possible to join in for a smaller distance, as the total ride will be made up with a series of different loops.

The Big Run: 1st September 2024

On 1st September, a number of us will be attempting to run the Cheltenham Half Marathon, others will take on the 10k run on the same day. We are looking for more people to join the team.

The Circular Walk: 14th September 2024

This 23.6 mile walk around the outskirts of Gloucester takes in Sharpness Canal, Chosen Hill and Robins Wood Hill. The hills and the distance add an edge to the challenge.

Paul and Matt will attempt to take on all five challenges, but they would like other people to join them. Would you consider joining them on one or more of the challenges? If you are interested in find out more, please get in touch with Paul or Matt.
