Fundraising

Help raise at least £250,000 / $330,000

to benefit local charities all over the world

Raising money for charity is a key element of Walk the World.

Everyone taking part is encouraged to make a donation to their local charity.

Just visit your walk page to find out how

But don't stop there! Why not fundraise as much as possible? If you are walking a challenging distance, you could ask friends and family for sponsorship. 

Donate

Raise over £100/US$150 (or local amount communicated) and take an additional day off work!

Just show proof to your line manager after WTW closes and book the day off via your local holiday booking system. 

Users of eDays and ADP have the option of booking a 'WTW day'.
