Fabulous Virtual Walk 2021

For us, and many of you, the last Sunday of September usually means one thing, and that's the Five Valleys Walk

Meningitis Now fundraising event - Fabulous Virtual Walk 2020 Header - Sign Up

For the second year, the Five Valleys Walk is unable to go ahead, but you can help us keep the spirit of the Walk alive by taking part in the Fabulous Virtual Walk - a great way to get our boots dirty and raise money to continue the fight against meningitis.

From the beginning of September, walk, jog or run 21 miles - the length of the Five Valleys Walk route - wherever and whenever you like. Walk it in a day, a week, or a month - the choice is yours.

Sign up today for £21 and we'll send you your Fabulous Virtual Walk entry pack, which includes:

  • Your Walker's Handbook - full of ideas for routes around the UK 
  • A fun kids' activity sheet
  • Safety and fundraising tips 
  • An exclusive Fabulous Virtual Walk t-shirt

You'll also get an invite to our Fabulous Virtual Walk community on Facebook.

We estimate that 21 people contract meningitis every single day. But by walking 21 miles we can continue to save lives and rebuild futures. Please sign up for the Fabulous Virtual Walk; we've walked together for the past 34 years. Let's not stop now.
