However you can still sponsor our 130 participants!

Eddie is so pleased that 130 people have registered to help him home from York. Will you show your support for our challengers by sponsoring them? All money raised will go towards working with disabled people in Wigan and Leigh to live the life they choose.

To say thanks for sponsoring, you will be entered into a prize draw. The draw will take place live, on Facebook, Monday 1st of March when Eddie is home. Prizes include:
  • Samsung Galaxy Smart Watch
  • Free entry to the next Wigan 10km
  • A replica England football shirt

Thank you for your support!

Between 1st and 28th February we are inviting you to take part in our 80 mile challenge. All you need to do is measure how far you have walked, run or rolled using your phone, smart watch or device of your choice.

You then send updates of your progress to our team for each 10 miles you complete and we will measure your progress, providing you Eddie’s progress along the way.

Frequently asked questions 

Can I register for Getting Eddie Home?

registration closed on 1st February 2021 – our 130 however would still welcome sponsorship or donations.

Can I do my miles in my home? 

Yes, we estimate that 2000 steps are equal to one mile. Therefore, if you can send us evidence you need and we will add it to your total.  

What happens when I have registered and donated? 

You will receive a text from a member of our team who will tell you how to manage your miles.  

Can I do less than 80 miles and still receive a certificate, bear and a medal? 

Yes, not everyone will reach the 80 mile total for many different reasons. Just do what you can. You can however, team up with other people and do the 80 miles between you.
