Befriend a Child are inviting local schools, nursery settings, after school clubs, holiday clubs and other clubs/groups to take part in their MILES FOR SMILES CHALLENGE during 2024. 

Miles for Smiles offers a fun way to keep active whilst raising awareness of the work of Befriend a Child in local communities across Aberdeen City and Shire.  The challenge is simple, with only 4 key elements required to get you started:

Move in any way you choose – cycle, jump, swim, run, skip, walk or wheel.  Just get started and keep on moving!

Give yourself a timeframe for the challenge – a week, a month or a whole school year.  Keep it real and within reason!

Set a realistic goal – based on your challenge and time available, set your distance or goal. Make it challenging and fun!

We understand that not everyone will be able to donate, so please set an achievable amount you would like to raise to suit your setting. 50% of all funds raised will be split between your setting and Befriend a Child.

Taking on the Miles for Smiles Challenge is easier than ever before and is designed to enable your pupils to take ownership of the challenge.  Our handy checklist will help young people work together to choose their challenge, timeframe and distance/goal.  We have also created a useful Miles for Smiles Challenge Pack containing graphics and copy, which can be used on your social media, website and comms.  

If you are interested in the challenge, please Register and a member of our team will be in touch with all the relevant information to help get you started.

We can’t wait to find out what fun challenges you choose and look forward to the updates!
