What is it?

Meningitis Now’s Under the Sea Toddle Waddle is a short sponsored stomp for the under 5s, packed full of fun and educational activities.

All of our Toddle Waddle activities meet Ofsted’s Early Years Foundation Stage and other educational frameworks. Once you’ve signed up, we will provide you with a simple table to show you how.

When and where?

You can hold your Toddle Waddle at any time throughout the year that suits you, and in any location as long as it’s safe.

Check out our Toddle Waddle stories page to see when and where other people have held their Toddle Waddles.

How much does it cost?

You can take part for FREE. All we ask is that you raise as much sponsorship and awareness of the disease as possible - remember all proceeds will make a real difference to our fight against meningitis.
