Rwanda Ramble

No-one welcomed 2021 in quite the way they were expecting, but to help us kick-off our year we would like you to join us in celebrating the African countries that CWB works in and the Ambassadors that work there.

As we’re not able to travel to Rwanda now or in the near future, we would like to invite you to explore the country from home.

Our Rwanda Ramble takes you and your team on a 360-mile journey so that you can find out about our Rwandan Ambassadors and the work that CWB does in the country. You will travel the country from 11th January until 11th March and when you (or your team) reach milestones at key CWB locations you will find out more about those places and people.

This virtual race is our first awareness and fundraising activity of 2021. Throughout the year we are raising funds to support the work of our Ambassadors, with a target of £15,000. This will fund the activities of our 8 Ambassadors in spreading vital health messages and coaching cricket – keeping children and communities safe.

For a donation of £10 per person you can enter by yourself or as a team of up to 4 people to run, walk or cycle your way around Rwanda. And why not set up a fundraising page as you take on this challenge, and ask your friends and family to sponsor you as you wind your way through the Rwandan hillsides? You can use our preferred platform, Virgin Money Giving, to make this easy.

If running isn’t your thing, any donation is welcome to add to our fundraising total – just £10 can fund an exciting session at a school to engage around 100 children in cricket and HIV awareness.

 

 

 

My Virtual Mission: FAQs

Q. Can I connect to fitness tracking apps?
A. Yes. Many fitness apps can be connected. Go to My Connections in the Main menu on My Virtual Mission and find the app that you want to connect. Click on app and follow instructions to connect.

Q. My distance isn’t showing on the mission progress but it’s all uploaded on my fitness tracker.
A. It takes some time for My Virtual Mission to connect to the fitness app in order to be able to sync. This should be rectified after a few hours and upload to the mission will be automatic.

Q. I don’t have a fitness app, can I still be part of the mission?
A. Yes. Data can be added manually

Q. 360 miles seems a long way! What should I do if I don’t have other people to join me?
A. On sign-up you will be asked if you are entering solo, as part of an existing team (have your team name to hand!) or would like to be placed into a team. We will do all we can to make sure anyone who wants to be in a team of 4 will be.

Q. What distance do I need to cover to be part of the mission?
A. You can contribute as much or as little as is possible. The overall distance is a team effort and if you sign up and contribute you are part of the team.

Q. Can I use this as a fundraising event for volunteering on a Cricket Without Boundaries project?
A. Yes, while projects are currently on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions, any money raised on this mission or any other fundraising effort can be put towards volunteering on future projects.
