Move this Mercy May

Make every step count

During May, walk or run the distance of a marathon (42.2km) and have fun whilst raising money for Mercy Ships too! This is an exciting virtual challenge that you can do no matter where you live, whatever your current fitness level is and on your own schedule.

Walk as little as 1.36km a day, or run/walk the distance in chunks such as 5kms or10kms. This is YOUR challenge.

Track your kms whenever you move – walking the dog, on the treadmill, running at the weekend or even walking to work.

Raise a minimum of $125 for Mercy Ships to help African children living in desperate need.

Your support along the way

When you register, you’ll be invited to join our private Facebook group and exclusive online Strava group so you can track your kms.  Share your experiences with others, receive motivation,  fitness and fundraising tips throughout May,  post your progress reports, support others, and seek encouragement on the days you need it.
