Miles for Smiles
Miles for Smiles walk 300 miles
Back in January we were lucky enough to be chosen by the wonderful people of Miles for Smiles as their charity of the year!
Here is how Miles for Smiles announced that me&dee were their charity of the year:
The time has come to finally reveal our 2021 chosen charity!
Our 300 Mile walk from Edinburgh will all be aid of…. me&dee charity!
After asking you guys for nominations, whittling it down to 2 charities, the team decided on choosing me&dee for 2021!
me&dee are again, a local charity based in Melbourne, Derbyshire who aim to support children and families who face life changing and/or life limiting circumstances.
We’re so pleased that we’re able to walk in aid of such a wonderful charity and again, a charity local to our community.
When we choose our charities we have a lot of requests and unfortunately cannot fundraise for them all, so the decision to choose me&dee took a lot of conversation, a lot of research and a lot of planning our end and we truly believe that this charity is one where our Miles genuinely will create Smiles!
It goes without saying that we are delighted to be chosen and our thanks go to everyone connected with Miles for Smiles.
This amazing group of people based in Swadlincote and before this challenge have so far raised an amazing £52,517 for charities across their region!
The Miles for Smiles Team
It’s a 300 mile walk from Edinburgh Castle to Woodville over 10 days, starting on August 18th 2021, sounds easy right? Callum put this challenge in to perspective;
“We have six months to train for this mammoth walk, it’s like walking from Woodville to Pride Park, back to Woodville and then walk from Woodville to Burton and do that 10 days on the bounce!"
The five walkers are; Callum , Joe , Jordan , Simone and Nick
In addition to this walk the team are already raising funds through auctions, raffles, score cards and T-shirt sales.
Their big raffle starts at the end of April so look out for that, some fantastic prizes have been donated, more details to come.
