Sunday was a great day for Milly’s Smiles. Be Strong’s Rick and Rachel organised the day, which was a challenge to walk as many miles as possible in 12 hours. The event began at 6.30am when the first walkers set off. Each loop of the park was a mile long, and walkers were able to log each mile with a sticker to allow them to keep track. The sun shone, spirits were high and the park was filled from early morning till 6.30pm with people supporting Milly’s Smiles and taking on the challenge.
We were lucky enough to be able to meet the walkers there and we were in awe at their dedication and commitment, many people accomplished personal achievements and this was so lovely to see. We had over 276 walkers take part (some people joined in when they saw the stand in the park, which we love) and a grand total of 1802 miles were walked that day.
We thank every single person who came down and supported Milly’s Smiles, you all helped raise awareness forour charity and on top of that you raised a massive £1087!
