Mile a day in May is back for 2022!

Run, walk or cycle a mile each day in May.

Back by popular demand is our Mile A Day in May for 2022!  Get out and get active which the whole family can get involved in.

All we ask is that for every day in May you walk, run, cycle, hop, skip or jump a mile each day. Whatever takes your fancy!  It’s a great way to get you outdoors, boost your mood and support your overall health and fitness and at the same time supporting local children with heart disease.

With no government funding, we are reliant on the generosity and support of amazing people like you taking part in challenges like our Mile a Day in May and raising sponsorship.

We would encourage you to get a sponsor for each mile you complete. Why not let family, friends and work colleagues choose a day to sponsor you and on that day they walk, run or cycle a mile also for encouragement and support?

There are plenty of free apps that will allow you to track your miles. You can screenshot your daily mile as well as sharing photos and videos throughout the month of May to your social media pages – the more updates, the more awareness you raise for the charity and funds to support our core services.

How do I get involved?

Please register with us to take part.  Simply email with who in your family will be taking part, including kids and your contact details and address.

Email: [email protected]

Registration is free. All we ask is that you try and raise some sponsorship as part of your Mile A Day Challenge.

Please know, however much you raise, we truly appreciate every single donation which will have a positive impact on the support we can provide to local families.


We will have Mile A Day T-shirts again this year for those who take part so  register by Wednesday 30th March to guarantee your Mile A Day T-shirt!  Please email us what size you require when registering.

*limited quantities available*

Once registered we will then email you with a Mile A Day Fundraising pack with hints and tips on getting the most out of your challenge along with your T-shirt in the post.

(Please watch out as some of our correspondence may go to your junk/spam folder)

Thank you! We look forward to you taking part.

Mile A Day in May 2021

Last year’s Mile A Day in May was our first fundraising event following 18 months of lockdowns due to the Covid 19 Pandemic and we were blown away by the response! Over 928 individuals took part from families, friends, businesses and schools.

Thanks to you a staggering  £133,420 was raised and your humbling generosity has allowed us to start working on a unique and exciting project which will be the first of its kind in Northern Ireland! Plans are still being arranged and we hope we can reveal the news very soon!
