our biggest annual fundraising event returned in 2020 as a virtual event between 28/09 and 04/10
Every year, the stay brave community comes together to take on a challenge that makes every step count in the aim of breaking down the barriers that survivors face when seeking help and reporting abuse. Our 10 mile Walking Brave challenge is the perfect opportunity for us to raise the profile of abuse survivors from under-served communities and help raise vital funds to help stay brave achieve their mission.
Every year, we walk across london, to represent the journey that survivors face when building the courage to report abuse. With the ongoing coronavirus situation, Walking Brave 2020 returned as a virtual event so that supporters and survivors could take part no matter where they are in the UK. Our goal was to complete a 10 mile walk between September 28th and October 4th and for each person to raise at least £15 in donations. We managed to raise a fantastic £2,135 - which will enable us to continue our work to support the survivors of abuse.
The walk symbolises the journey survivors take when taking those first steps towards a better future. Just like this walk, asking for help may seem easy until you're having to set off. If you'd like to take part in a future Walking Brave - read the information below.
