Run for Heroes is the charity which started the infamous 5km running challenge - Run 5, Donate 5, Nominate 5 - during the first lockdown. What started as a plan to raise £5,000 for NHS charities at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic went completely viral on social media, becoming a major fitness motivation and fundraising tool for more than a million people. 

After the success of the original fundraiser, the nation is once again being encouraged to get active in the name of charity as lockdown restrictions continue to ease.

Run for Heroes is launching its latest challenge by turning the month of May into a celebration of physical activity with their 5kMay campaign. Everyone is invited to take part, including The Walton Centre Charity supporters.

As the name suggests, it’s all about getting fit and hitting that 5km target. It’s not just about running though - you could walk, roll, skip or even swim your 5 kilometers if you wish! All that matters is getting your body moving and raising vital funds for charity.

You can take part on your own or as a group, donate your £5 to The Walton Centre Charity then nominate 5 friends or family members to complete their own 5km challenge.
