What is the One Big Walk challenge?

There are 1.5 million people in the UK with a learning disability. We’d like you to use that number to raise awareness and set your own One Big Walk challenge! How about…

  • a gentle 1.5 mile walk over 2 weeks.
  • an ambitious 15 miles in one day.
  • a total distance of 150 miles walked across the whole of September.

...or something else, the choice is yours!

Walking is a great way to fundraise, and it's also good for your physical and mental health. So sign up today and let's make this the biggest One Big Walk yet!

Why take part in One Big Walk for Mencap?

Wherever you decide to complete your walk, you'll be raising vital funds to help us support 1.5 million people with a learning disability across the UK.

Plus, if you raise £150 or over by 30 September 2023 we'll send you a bespoke Team Mencap medal!

What do fundraisers have to say about this walk for charity?

 I would say to anyone to go and do it next year.

 Walking helps you to keep fit and it also helps your mental health.

 Finally, it can help you raise lots of money for charity, it is really worth doing!”
