60 MILES. 60 DAYS. £60.

Helping babies born too soon.

1st October - 29th November 2019.

RUN IT, WALK IT, PLOD ALONG OR EVEN SKIP!

A mile a day or 10 at a time. In the park, at the beach or around town. It's up to you!

We challenge you to complete 60 miles between 1st October and 29th November 2019 and raise at least £60 to help the 60,000 babies that are born too soon each year in the UK.

60,000 babies are born prematurely each year in the UK, tragically more than 1,000 lose their lives due to premature birth. Globally, it’s the biggest killer of children under 5. It’s too many. Far too many. So we're fighting back to help stop the devastation caused by premature birth and we want you to join our fight!

Run it, walk it, plod it or even skip it. It’s up to you. However you choose to complete the challenge, the money you raise will fund vital research to help stop premature birth.
