On Saturday 31st April, Workout Away, with a team of 30-strong, walked ten miles across the city of London in aid of UNICEF's efforts in Ukraine. At the time of publishing, more than £1300 has been raised!
As the conflict escalates in Ukraine, millions of children and their families are in immediate danger. More than half a million children in Ukraine are already affected as the conflict in the country's east escalates.
UNICEF is especially concerned for the safety and well-being of children who have become separated from their families and are working hard to keep children safe. The Walk to Support Ukraine fundraiser event helped to ensure that child health and protection services are sustained, and families have clean water and nutritious food.
On the day of the walk, the group left Hammersmith at 12:15 and arrived in Canary Wharf at 17:15 after walking for nearly five hours. The group was made up of a mix of people from all across London. Some of the group were from Ukraine and had their own stories to tell of people that they knew who had been affected by the conflict.
Although the event is now over, the conflict goes on, so please donate HERE!
