As a team, we pushed ourselves and walked / ran a total of 643km – this is the equivalent to if we’d walked from our offices in Leatherhead to the COP26 conference in Glasgow!
So far, we have raised £40 which could cover the printing and distribution of resource packs for 42 children in Uganda to teach them about the impacts of climate change.
Restless Development is a global non-profit agency that supports young people to lead change in their communities. Young people make up over half of the world’s population yet are often overlooked when it comes to solving some of the world’s biggest issues. Whether its ending child marriage, the youth unemployment crisis, or tackling climate change, Restless Development provides young people with the training and resources they need to become leaders in solving these issues to improve their lives and the lives of those in their communities.

There currently isn’t a cure for Diabetes.
