Friends of the Cheltenham Samaritans bring you The Cheltenham World Relay 2021!

Virtual

Dates: From Monday 26 July to Sunday 5 September 2021

 

 

Following the success of their first Cheltenham World Relay in 2020 the Friends of the Cheltenham Samaritans are organising a bigger, better event in 2021. The aim is to get as many people as possible taking part in exercise over a 6 week period and seeing how far around the globe their collective miles take them. Those participating are encouraged to get sponsorship and to spread awareness of the fantastic work of the Cheltenham branch of Samaritans. By getting involved each participant’s fitness and mental wellbeing will improve too.
