To boost staff wellbeing and raise funds for a local children’s charity, the CYCJ team will be undertaking a 874 mile charity walk.
As part of CYCJ’s Wellbeing ‘Week’, the team will aim to collectively (and virtually) walk the 874 miles between Land’s End and John O’Groats. Any method of travel is permitted as long as it is under our own steam (walking, running, cycling, rollerskating etc). This challenge will last for 14 days.
In addition to encouraging staff to step away from their desks and enjoy fresh air after a long year of working from home, the challenge will also enable us to raise money for a great cause that fits well with the CYCJ vision and values – the G20 Youth Festival.
The G20 Youth Festival is a grassroots community youth project in North West Glasgow, working to enable the most marginalised and excluded young people to become confident and valued members of their community. They are tackling some of the most urgent 21st century issues such as food poverty, loneliness, achievement gap, climate change, access to nature and the decline of community.
The G20 is a safe haven for young people caught up in a life storm not of their own making or choosing. The physical youth club, open all year round, gives them a sense of security, enabling the highly skilled and committed youth workers to explore issues of self-worth, respect and essential life boundaries.
Any contribution – no matter how small – would be very much appreciated.
