Great North Run 2022

After two long years, the Great North Run will return to its iconic city-to-sea half marathon course on 11th September 2022. This year we have 20 spaces on our Great North Run team and we’d love YOU to join us.  

If you’d like to run the Great North Run as part of #TeamActionFoundation then all we ask from you is £59 to cover the entry fees and a target of £350 in fundraising. We’ll provide tailored support along the way and send you one of our branded running vests for the big day!  

“Whether you’re considering taking part in the GNR for the first time or you’re a seasoned runner, I would 100% recommend running for AF this year[…]AF did everything they could to make me feel welcome and part of the team, making the whole experience extra special.” – Jon, Team Action Foundation 2021  

If you’d like to chat about joining our team then please email [email protected] to reserve your space today.  

Step Up for Refugees – Summer Step Challenge

This summer we’re asking people to Step Up for Refugees with our super step challenge – and we’d love you to join in!

You can walk on your own, or with a friend – or why not even get a whole team together from your office or neighbourhood?

How to take part:

Set yourself a personal step challenge of between 8,000 and 15,000 steps PER DAY (if you’re super-fit, you may even wish to take on 20k) for the whole month of August.

If you can’t do your daily distance one day, you can add it on to the rest of your week’s walking – as long as your daily average works out at the steps you’ve set yourself. So for instance, you may choose to do a longer walk at the weekend if you work during the week.

What you’ll need:

It’s SO easy to take part in this challenge. All you need is:

* A pair of trainers or walking shoes

* A smart phone, fitness tracker or pedometer to track your steps – Happy stepping!

How to get sponsorship:

We’ve set a target of £100 for each fundraiser – all the money you raise will support Action Foundation’s work with refugees and asylum seekers in the North East. To get started with your sponsorship, simply click here. to set up your fundraising page, then share your link with potential sponsors.

If you’ve got any questions or would like to chat about this challenge please get in touch with [email protected] and we’re happy to help!

Good luck in your Step Up for Refugees challenge – we hope it makes you feel fitter and more energised! Every step you take will show our beneficiaries that they’ll never walk alone.
