EACH Mile Counts - Walk

Inspired by The Proclaimers and really want to walk 500 miles? Or perhaps you enjoy a long Sunday stroll and now hope to challenge yourself.

EACH Mile Counts is your challenge, your way - below are a few ideas to get you started, but you can set the challenge and the pace. You could walk on the treadmill at your local gym, complete a route near you and add the miles up until you've reached your target, or perhaps take on a well known footpath. 

  • 10 miles - Felixstowe Pier to The Treehouse, our children's hospice in Ipswich
  • 46 miles - Peddars Way, starts at Knettishall Heath in Suffolk and it links with the Norfolk Coast Path at Holme-next-the-Sea.
  • 150 miles - the East Anglian Coast, from Hunstanton to Felixstowe 
  • 500 miles - 'and I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more...' perhaps just once would be enough of a challenge! 

Read our Frequently Asked Questions here or contact your local fundraising team:

  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
