Big Rotary Cornish Coastal Footpath Challenge. WEEK 1 UPDATE

This Challenge is open to all Cornish Rotary Clubs and their friends. We are walking the Cornish coastal footpath all through August to raise funds for Cornwall Mind and for Clubs' chosen charities.


The Map is now updated to show the lengths of the footpath that have been completed, and the total miles walked (ie miles x no. of walkers)

It also shows the footpath lengths that have been "pledged" to be walked by Cornish Rotary Clubs, their friends and Cornwall Mind.

The map will be updated with further progress every Monday in August, so remember to check this site regularly!

A reminder: Please report your completed miles and numbers of walkers to the Boscawen Club Challenge Administrator using this contact form.

Note: for anyone who has not yet chosen their walks, for those wishing to sign up, or who would like further information, please contact the Challenge Administrator using this link.


...and don't worry about "duplicating" walks already shown on the map. Just choose what you want to do. 

Clubs will have set up their own JustGiving page, linked to Cornwall Mind, and walkers' supporters/sponsors will make their giving to their page. 

Lucy at Cornwall Mind will be pleased to offer help and support on any fundraising issues.

Note: 50% of the monies raised by each club will be returned to them by Cornwall Mind at the end of the Challenge for them to allocate to their own chosen Charity.
