Miles for Support


Keep fit and show your support

During this period when we need to stay at home, keeping fit is vitally important. So how about making your daily exercise even more significant by joining together to achieve an amazing goal. Travel (virtually!) 900 miles around the country to all our Support Group locations and raise some funds along the way.

Walk, cycle, run your way around the UK to show your support for brain tumour patients and their families.

You can do this in your own home (using an exercise bike, treadmill, steps from your FitBit etc) or if you are able to, using your daily form of exercise outside (but of course follow official social distancing guidelines). Count your miles over a week and see how they add up!

Log your distance so we can show how far we have travelled together, and get sponsorship for your hard work to help us secure the future of our support services.

Set yourself a goal and donate an amount per mile, or ask your friends to sponsor you or match your donations. 
Take part!

Simply log your miles using the form below.  

Send us your sponsorship money through our dedicated JustGiving page in the following ways:

  • You and your friends can either donate directly to the total  -  click on 'Donate'

  • You can accumulate funds in your own name to feed into the total by setting up your own fundraiser - click on 'Start fundraising'. We suggest you then choose 'Doing your own thing', or 'Remembering someone' if you are fundraising in memory of someone special.

Log your distance and donate

Tell your friends and followers on social media that you are taking part and share the link to this page. We need as many people as possible to join in! Please use #milesforsupport
