Starting at 9am on Friday 11th June 2021, the fundraising event will see the toy industry take part, by any non-motorised means, in attempting to circumnavigate the globe in 80 hours. This amounts to a massive 40,075km!
The event will be hosted on popular exercise tracking app Strava, which will host the attempt and the event is free of charge to join.
The industry is encouraged to use its creativity and initiative in getting involved with fancy-dress or unusual means of transport (no motors allowed) for example on tandem bike or by horseback. Traditional methods including walking, running, cycling and swimming are also encouraged. All ideas for completing the task are welcomed and participants can complete distances by a mixture of disciplines over the 80-hour period.
The Toy Trust event will be in support of two fantastic UK based children’s charities which provide essential mobility to children who would otherwise not have access due to long NHS waiting lists. These well run and inspiring charities are myAFK and Handicapped Children’s Action Group (HCAG).
All funds raised through the event will go on to purchase bespoke mobility equipment for special children and young people who need it most and will include specialised trikes, bikes, wheelchairs and walking aids as well as other important mobility apparatus for deserving children.
