50 Miles for 50 Years

Help celebrate our 50th anniversary with a very special charity challenge…

We’re encouraging our supporters to take part in, or hold their own, sporting event to achieve 50 miles across 365 days. Whether it takes you a day, a month, or the whole year, you choose how you’d like to make up your miles – and you can be as flexible and creative as you like!

You could take part in a weekly park run, walk across the South Downs Way, cycle from London to Brighton or even rack up your 50 miles by taking the dog for a walk! All participants will receive a Rockinghorse running vest or t-shirt, golden wristband and a fundraising pack, PLUS a gold commemorative medal once you’ve completed your 50 miles.

We’re asking participants to raise £100 in sponsorship for the 50 Miles for 50 Years challenge, which will be donated towards our special 50th year projects. If you’d like to sign-up and take part, please call Hannah on 01273 330044 or email
