Join Team Belgravia For ‘Walk In Her Shoes’ Charity Fundraiser

Team Belgravia are taking part in the ‘Walk In Her Shoes’ charity challenge this March and we’d like to invite you to join us!

Mariana Is Heading Up Team Belgravia For Walk In Her Shoes FundraiserWhat is ‘Walk In Her Shoes’?

Walk In Her Shoes is an initiative designed to raise money and awareness whilst walking in solidarity with women and girls who are missing out on education and a chance to earn an income because of the time they have to spend collecting water and food, accessing healthcare or seeking refuge from conflict.

From 23rd – 29th March inclusive, Team Belgravia, led by hair loss specialists Mariana Almeida (pictured right) and Elly McCormick, will join many others from around the UK in counting their steps, making sure we each hit 10,000 steps every day that week.

Much like a sponsored walk, we welcome anyone who would like to, to sign up to walk with us, or make a donation towards our target fundraising goal of £5,000 which will all go to the event’s charity.

Who is the charity?

‘Walk In Her Shoes’ is held to raise awareness and funds for CARE International UK, a non-religious, non-political charity organisation that provides humanitarian and developmental assistance to anyone in need, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, age, religion, politics or sexual orientation. The charity also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people to rebuild their lives in the aftermath.

CARE advise that at least 83p in every pound raised is spent directly on their poverty fighting programmes, whilst the rest goes towards fundraising and the organisation’s running costs.

Team Belgravia Take Part In Charity Walk In Her Shoes Fundraiser For Care International UKHow do I get involved?

There are two ways to get involved – you can either join Team Belgravia by taking part in the step counting week with us, or you can make a donation towards our team’s fundraising goal.

If you decide to get active with us, you don’t need to join up with the team in person or take any time out from work or leisure activities, all you need to do is make sure you take 10,000 steps per day, every day during challenge week. You can walk, jog or run – it’s up to you, every step counts no matter how you take it!

You can tweet or instagram @BelgraviaCentre a picture of your pedometer reading each day using the hashtag #WIHS, or post your progress to our Facebook or Google+ pages to share your accomplishments with the rest of the team.

To join Team Belgravia:

Press the ‘Join Team Belgravia’ button below which will take you to our Team page, then click on the brown ‘Join Team’ button to register your details. Once you have registered you just need to start raising funds and remember to count your steps every day between 16th and 22nd March inclusive, making sure you hit at least 10,000 steps per day. It is free to join our team or, if you would like to receive a pedometer and a T-shirt, it costs £10.

To make a donation:

If you don’t wish to take part but would still like to support our fundraising efforts for this worthwhile cause, you can sponsor us via the Team Belgravia donation page. Just click the button below then press any of the ‘Give Now’ buttons to input your payment details.

DONATE NOW

Remember, £100 can provide water and sanitation for a school for a class of children for two years, saving their daily walk for water and allowing them to receive an education. £1,500 could build a water well close to a community providing an abundance of fresh, clean water and, again, reduce their daily walk. Together we can make a difference so please consider supporting us in whatever way you can, and feel free to share this link with your friends and family.

If you have any questions about this fundraiser or difficulty with the team’s donation page, please do leave us a message in the comments below and we’ll get right back to you. We will also bring you updates on the team’s progress next month so do check back to see how they get on!
