VIRTUAL WALKS

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the need for fundraising in the Overberg.  To increase our fundraising efforts, we have introduced Virtual Walks.  We charge a nominal fee of R50 for each walk – registered L2L walkers have already paid when registering – and all the funds for the VW are shared amongst the charities that applied for funding, but were not selected as beneficiaries.

There are 4 Virtual Walks planned for 2020/2021.  Bring light in your community by encouraging your friends and family to join us in our fundraising efforts!

how to complete a virtual walk

The main aim of  the virtual walks are to raise funds.  However, it also gives  L2L walkers the opportunity to arrange a local walk in their community and raise awareness about l2l.

2. Download a fitness app – such as Strava or the activity app on your phone – we simply need proof that you have walked the distance.

3.  Complete the walk any time over the virtual walk weekend – make sure you do the same distance and that you track it with your fitness app

4. Take a screen shot of your completed walk on your app

5. Upload the screen shot to the L2L Facebook or Instagram page

6.  Once we have checked who has completed the virtual walk, we will send you your virtual walk badge.
