The Care Workers Charity presents Going the Extra Mile 2019 - a week-long campaign dedicated to celebrating those care workers and care teams that go the extra mile every day. The concept of this event is really simple - everyone goes a little further than they normally would in a day and is sponsored for their efforts in aid of The Care Workers Charity. 

.

Last year, 99 Going the Extra Mile events were hosted across the country, in which care teams, residents and local community walked, ran and cycled to celebrate the everyday efforts of dedicated individuals working in care.

This year, we are inviting individuals and organisations across the country to walk, run, bounce or even skip a mile between 22nd - 28th July 2019 in recognition of the great work that happens in the care sector. This could be around the grounds of your local care home, a relay, or you could manage your mile travelling between clients in the community. We encourage you to be creative - maybe you'll choose to swim your mile or run one mile every day between 22nd - 28th July?

You can opt for a small local event or try to get all of the locations of your care group involved. Whether small or big, it is most important that your event is inclusive, fun and engaging - we want everyone to recognise your great work and to hear about The Care Workers Charity, so make sure your local community and the service users are invited too!
