Fabulous Virtual Walk 2020

For us, and many of you, the last Sunday of September means the Five Valleys Walk. Things are a little different right now, but we're determined the spirit of the Walk will go on

Event information

Date: From Sunday 27 September
Location: Anywhere - the route is up to you!

This year, we're launching the Fabulous Virtual Walk - a great way to get our boots dirty and raise money to continue the fight against meningitis.

Starting on Sunday 27 September 2020 (the date that the Five Valleys Walk should have been), the idea is simple; walk 21 miles - the length of the Five Valleys route - wherever and whenever you like. Walk it in a day, a week or a month - the choice is yours.

You could win a hot air balloon ride!

Register today for £21 and we'll send you your Fabulous Virtual Walk entry pack, which includes great ideas for routes around the UK, a fun kids' activity sheet and an exclusive Meningitis Now walkers' buff. Ask your friends and family to sponsor your walk and you could win some great prizes in our Top Fundraiser competition, which includes a top prize of a hot air balloon ride courtesy of Bristol & Avon.

Meningitis Now fundraising - Buffs

  • £21 can pay 700 signs & symptoms cards to help people recognise the signs of meningitis and potentially save lives
  • £210 can pay for one week of our Helpline, providing vital information and support for those whose lives have been devastated by the disease
  • £2,100 can pay for one week of a preventative research project that could one day end the pain of meningitis forever

We estimate that 21 people contract meningitis every single day. But by walking 21 miles we can continue to save lives and rebuild futures. 

We've walked together for the past 33 years. Let's not stop now.
