Follow the Seagulls: VIRTUAL EDITION

Join our community to raise vital funds and generate awareness as you #walkityourway by taking on our virtual Follow the Seagulls challenge!

This year, we have seen a huge increase in the number of people that have heard the words ‘you have a brain tumour’ reaching out to us for our support. At the same time, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, almost all the fundraising events that we depend upon have been cancelled. So, whilst our Seagulls superheroes take on 50 miles in Cowes and Whitby, we’re asking you to walk whatever distance you feel comfortable with, wherever you are.

#walkityourway on the 5th or 6th September by completing a distance that’s a challenge to you, whether that’s one mile or 20! You can stay inside by using a cross-trainer or a treadmill, or head outdoors to your local park or nearby countryside. Whatever you decide, please make sure you’ve done some training walks before the big day, stay safe and follow government guidelines.

Getting started is easy! Simply set up your Just Giving page by CLICKING HERE before the 4th September and we’ll be in touch with all the details you need. We hope you can join us and help raise essential funds to support the brain tumour community.

If you have any questions please contact sophie@brainstrust.org.uk or tom@brainstrust.org.uk

 

Follow the Seagulls

What is Follow the Seagulls? Follow the Seagulls is our annual 50 mile trek charity trek to help people beat brain cancer. It’s your chance to do something truly incredible that matches your passion to help the 60,000 people in the UK who are afraid and alone because of their brain tumour diagnosis.

In 2019, Follow the Seagulls raised over £60,000 to help people living with a brain tumour. The walks usually take place annually along coastal paths in the Isle of Wight, Whitby, Fife and Dartmouth. Unfortunately, we’ve had to make some tough decisions about how we deliver the event this year. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve had to cancel the trek in both Fife and Devon.

There’s still time to join us at our coastal routes in either Whitby or Cowes this September! Or, why not can sign up to take on our epic 50 mile walk in April 2021? To find out more, visit www.followtheseagulls.com
