POUND THE STREETS

Pound the Streets - Sunday 14th May.jpg

 

Join our Annual Walk to raise money for those who often find walking even a single step a real challenge

Our Marathon Walk this year will take place on Sunday 7th May starting 8.30 am at Milne Court, our largest development in South Woodford, and ending at Cecil Rosen Court, our newest development in Bushey Heath. If you would prefer a slightly shorter walk, you are very welcome to join us at the three-quarter or half way points. For more information please email Gemma Mishon

Here are 26 very good reasons for Pounding the Streets with us:

1.     You will be walking to raise money for those who often find it a challenge to walk a single step themselves.

2.     That money will go towards providing a life of independence, dignity and choice for adults, from the age of 18 upwards, who are physically disabled or vision impaired.

3.     Last year’s walk generated more than £16,000 in income for Jewish Blind & Disabled.

4     There is an option to suit everyone. You can choose to walk 26.2 miles (starting at 8.30am), 19.6 miles (starting at 10.30am) or 13.1 miles (starting at 1pm).

5.     There’s also a brand new route for 2017, setting off from our largest building, Milne Court in South Woodford, and finishing at our newest, Cecil Rosen Court in Bushey Heath.

6.     By starting and/or ending at a Jewish Blind & Disabled building, you will see first hand what your sponsorship money can achieve.

7.     You will also get to meet some of our wonderful tenants!

8.     There’s the opportunity to discover parts of the country you’ve never seen before, as the route takes you from east to west.

9.     You will be supported all the way by our infamous Jewish Blind & Disabled Van.

10.  There will be lots of delicious food, with the Van dishing out everything from fruit to chocolate to keep you going.

11.  Plus there will be a delicious breakfast for all those starting the walk at Milne Court.

12.  Everyone signing up gets an in-depth training plan with activities and tips to get you ready.

13.  You will need to start walking more in preparation, which is proven to be good for your heart, your head and your wallet.

14.  A report by the Ramblers and Macmillan Cancer Support found that 30 minutes of walking a day could save 37,000 lives each year.

15.  Regular walking is known to reduce the risk of risk of developing many illnesses, including diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.

16.  A report by the mental health charity Mind found that walking can reduce depression and raise self-esteem.

17.  Studies have found that walking also helps you sleep better and feel more alert during the day.

18.  By walking more, you’ll naturally drive less and use public transport less, therefore saving money.

19.  And with the money you save, why not treat yourself to some new trainers and active wear for the walk!

20.  Everyone taking part in the Pound the Streets walk will get their very own personalised Jewish Blind & Disabled goodies, including a T-shirt.

21.  There will be live social media updates from the walk, so friends and family can follow your progress.

22.  It’s a great way to make new friends, and bond with old ones, as you laugh and cry through the pain together.

23.  On arrival at Cecil Rosen Court, you will be presented with a certificate and a medal.

24.  There will be a delicious tea afterwards with sandwiches, fruit and popcorn.

25.  Plus there’s another special treat in store at the end.

26.  Did we mention that the money raised goes towards the most fantastic cause!
