The challenge

Run or cycle for your planet and raise money for Friends of the Earth. Will you try to beat your personal best? Can you reach 5k? Challenge yourself and make a difference.

Much like the climate emergency, the pandemic has affected the most vulnerable both at home and abroad. Our climate campaign team is working tirelessly to make sure the government adopts a recovery plan that fixes our broken economy and prioritises people and planet.

Like you, we know a better future is possible. Run or cycle for your planet and help support this crucial campaign.

How to fundraise

Pick your goal: You could do anything  from running around your local park, reaching 5k over a week, or swapping your usual train commute for a bike ride instead. Challenge yourself to something you're going to enjoy.

Strava: Track your distance using your phone or another device, and connect your account with JustGiving to help you raise more cash. 

JustGiving: Set-up a JustGiving page and ask friends, family and colleagues to donate. Share your page on social media. If you raise £150 or more we'll send you a Friends of the Earth t-shirt.

Stay safe: Remember to keep yourself and others safe during the coronavirus pandemic. Ensure you follow the rules where you are and always maintain social distancing.

Why fundraise for Friends of the Earth?

Friends of the Earth has a great track record when it comes to environmental wins. Over the past year we:

✔️ Helped stop the UK funding fossil fuel projects abroad

✔️ Triggered industry action on plastic pollution

✔️ Persuaded councils to start doubling tree cover

✔️ Supported over 230 local Climate Action groups in developing community solutions to the climate crisis.

The financial future is uncertain and we need your support more than ever. With your help we'll demand that post-coronavirus recovery plans tackle the climate and nature emergencies.
