Red Shoe Walk is an event organised by the British Red Cross next week – it’s an eight mile walk around central London where participants have to dress in red.
Kerry Thomas, National Events Manager of British Red Cross said: “The money raised will be used to support people in crisis in the UK and all over the world.”
In the fourth edition of this event there are also competitions between the people involved. There will be a selfies competition – the participants need to take selfies around red stuff during the walk and the best will get a prize. They can also take part in a quiz.
The registration costs ten pounds but the association encourages people to get at least £50 in sponsorship. If you join the Team Red Cross you get a free pair of red shoe covers and a free Red Cross t-shirt if you raise £100.
“There is someone coming with her friends to celebrate her birthday,” said Thomas. This event is for all ages and family members. However it’s not recommended for children in pushchairs or people on wheelchairs because of the number of steps during the walk.
The walk starts and finishes at Moorgate at the British Red Cross office. There will be two routes – one of eight miles and another of four miles.
The shorter route starts in Moorgate and goes to: Tower Bridge, London Bridge, Southwark Bridge, Millennium Bridge, St Paul’s and back to British Red Cross Office.
After the walk finishes the participants will gather in the British Red Cross office where there will be music and games for everyone.
Thomas invites everyone to take part of this challenge: “It is great to see the main attractions of London; spend some time with your family or friends while raising money for people in need,” she said.
