WHY BRITISH RED CROSS' AFGHANISTAN CRISIS APPEAL?
Picture from Newsflare.
We've all seen the news. 18 million people in Afghanistan need humanitarian help. Hundreds of thousands of children have been forced out of their homes. At Secret London Runs we didn't feel like we could keep on with our day-to-day operations without doing something. So we're asking the Secret London Runs Community and their friends and families to take part in this event.
Money donated to the British Red Cross' Afghanistan Crisis Appeal goes directly to support the families that are arriving in the UK from Afghanistan. From emotional support to essential items - clothes, blankets, soap, nappies.
Frequently asked questions
Can anyone take part or is it just members of Secret London Runs?
EVERYONE is welcome. We'd love to have you involved, wherever you are in the world.
I'd love to take part but I'm short on time...
Check out the first three bingo cards. We've designed them so that you can fit them around your busy schedule whilst making sure you get some time to yourself to be active.
Can I combine activities?
You mean could you go to your happy place (that happens to be full of culture) via a new route, on your lunchbreak wearing all the colours of the rainbow?!
What are the blank spaces on the bingo cards for?
Breathers! We thought that 25 activities in a month might make you all run a mile (and never come back)!
Why are there different donation amounts? Do they correlate to the different bingo cards?
No. We planned to launch with £5 per ticket but our customers kept asking us to add higher donation amount options. We want this to be accessible to everyone - but we also want you to be able to donate more if you'd like to do that. Every donation is welcome - £5 will do so much good - so please don't be put off by the higher ticket prices.
Can we participate as a family/in groups?
As long as you do each square together - absolutely! But you can't split off the activities between you.
I'm injured and struggling with a few activities on my card.
Please don't take part in activities that might injure you. You know your body. But we'd love to have you involved. So please substitute any activities for something more suitable. You can let us know your replacements, or get in touch and we can help suggest something.
DON'T FORGET TO SHARE YOUR ADVENTURES
We have a wonderful community of like-minded people in the Secret London Runs Connect facebook group. We'd love you to share your bingo highlights with us.
