Get involved with the PHA UK

Walk with us

Our virtual event to bring the PH community together

Like most of this summer’s sporting events, the Westfield Health British Transplant Games have been cancelled – but we’re making the most of the opportunity to bring the PH community together.

The PHA UK had agreed to sponsor the walking competition at this year’s games, so on the day the event was due to take place, we are inviting you to walk with us – wherever you are – in the virtual company of our PH family. 

You can join in on a scooter on in a wheelchair too!

When? Saturday 1st August 2020 at 1pm

Where? Anywhere you can! If you don’t want to or can’t go out, you could complete laps of your garden, pace up and down the stairs, or stroll around your local area if you’re able to get outside. You can even walk on the spot in your living room.

How far? It’s completely up to you! The official walk event at The British Transplant Games is a choice of 3km or 5km, but there are no rules here. Walk for as long as you like or as far as you can manage, knowing there are hundreds of others touched by PH who are doing the same thing at the same time.

The aim of this event is to encourage a sense of togetherness at a time when some people may be feeling alone. If, however, you would like to take the opportunity to raise money for our charity, every penny will be appreciated.

Perhaps you could make a donation after your walk, or invite friends and family to sponsor your endeavours? For advice or a fundraising pack, please call 01709 761450 or email helen@phauk.org

We’re looking forward to walking with you at 1pm on Saturday 1st August! Please call 01709 761450 or email office@phauk.org if you have any questions.

Let us know if you’ll be walking by emailing media@phauk.org with your name and ‘I’ll be walking‘ in the subject line

And don’t forget to share your photos with us! If you’re posting on social media please use the hashtag #WalkWithUs
