We’re taking on a huge challenge to raise money for HomeStart Host and we need your help!

Did you know there is another Home-Start HoST?

They are a European scheme, based in the Czech republic, which is around 992 miles away from our own base at Ryecroft Hall in Audenshaw. Their website is here. their facebook page is here


***The Challenge***

We’re walking these 992 miles in February as a team from our head office at Ryecroft Hall to HomeStart HOST in the Czech Republic and we want you to join us by logging any walking or running you do between 1st and 28th Feb 2021 on our Dad Matters Club on the Strava app! Even if you are only walking a mile or two, every mile and share helps us reach our target of 992 miles and £1984.

In addition to raising money for Homestart HOST it’s a great way to keep active in lockdown and stay healthy. Your also not doing it on your own! Your part of team and community which is something we all need right now.

We’ve set up a just giving page for the event which will be the only page for donations, it saves us all setting one up and adding it to a final total which should streamline things. Dad Matters UK is fundraising for Home-Start HOST (justgiving.com)

Please share with your friends and family as a sponsored event and tag @homestarthost and @dadmattersuk in any social media posts and use the hashtag #Host2host.

You can also share photos and videos of your walks on the strava app, or send them to us directly so we can share our journey and progress throughout February.

Let’s see if we actually make it to the Czech Republic in just 28 days, while having funn, getting exercise and raising much needed funds for a great cause.

Our target is to reach £1984 which is £2 per mile, we start logging miles on the 1st Feb so make sure you’re all set.

You don’t need to let us know how you’re doing, as once you join the Strava club your miles will be logged there, just remember to log your walks and runs.

This is open to anyone, including volunteers, families, trustees and other supporters. Anyone can join the Strava club and donate to the JustGiving link.

We’re going to use Strava to log our miles and we’ve set up a ‘Dad Matters UK’ Strava club. You can join it here: Dad Matters Strava Club.

To download the Strava app just search ‘Strava’ in your app store.
