To help mark Perennial’s 180th anniversary, it has launched Perennial Marathon Month. A new virtual fundraising event taking place throughout June 2019. Perennial is challenging people to walk or run a marathon within a month and the best part is, every step counts.
Chris Crooker, Events Manager at Perennial, says:
“We know how busy life can be, especially for people who work in horticulture, and it can be difficult to fit training and fundraising in to life’s many demands. But so many people tell us they would raise money for Perennial if they had the time. So we’ve created a virtual event that requires no training and can be done anytime during June. Sign up on our Marathon Month fundraising page. Tell your friends and family about the challenge and how they can sponsor you, and then track your steps throughout June.”
For people who want to get more competitive, the Perennial Marathon Month page has an in-built leaderboard. This automatically tracks your progress when you plug in an exercise tracking app.
Chris continues: “We’re asking people to raise £180 but every penny raised helps us support people in horticulture who are dealing with life-changing events. As an example, £180 could help someone living with cancer reach their treatment sessions. Or, it could help someone who has retired from horticulture heat their home.”
