Coast Path Walk with a difference for 2020


Our popular Cornwall Coastal Path Walk was postponed in May because of the COVID-19 restrictions and we agreed a new date in October. 

Sadly, the continuing restrictions mean we won’t be able to meet safely as a group and so unfortunately we won’t be able to hold this year’s Coastal Path Walk in the normal way. 

But as Robert Kiposaki said: “Inside of every problem lies an opportunity.” 

With that in mind, we are thrilled to invite you to complete your own 25 mile sponsored walk between now and the date of the planned event on 3 - 4 October.

The best bit about doing it your own way?! You can plan the days, the times and the route!

Perhaps walking 25 miles over 25 days?! Mapping out a month’s worth of dog walks? Or even nominating someone to do the miles for you!

When finished we’d really appreciate it if you could email in a photo of yourself (or of your daily walk route) to holding a sign that says ‘I did it!’ so that we can create a photo of you all to commemorate your success and share on our website and social media channels.

You can easily set up a fundrasing page for your own walk using JustGiving, Virgin Money Giving or EverydayHero. Simply search for CHICKS as your chosen charity and all the funds raised will ensure children are able to return to CHICKS for a break the moment it's safe. 

CHICKS Regional Fundraiser Mick Ryan has a special message of thanks to all those who had planned to take part in this year's Coast Path Walk or who has joined him for one of the last ten year's of events: "My huge thanks go to all the fantastic people I have walked with over the last ten years. The vast amount of money raised has gone towards funding breaks for thousands of disadvantaged children and young people at our Retreats - we have you amazing supporters to thank for that."

If you've ever wanted to take part in this event or were planning to this year but for any reason weren't able to, now's your chance to join the fun and enjoy the beauty of your favourite walk in your own time, your own way!
