miles in memory fundraising pack with baby loss awareness pin badge and aching arms beanie hat


Miles in Memory is back this October!

Throughout October, in support of Baby Loss Awareness week, we invite you to join our Miles in Memory challenge to celebrate the memory of babies who have touched your lives and raise money for Aching Arms. With your help, we can continue to offer comfort and support to bereaved families across the UK following the loss of their baby. Together, we will ensure that families do not face their journeys alone.

Miles in Memory is a great opportunity to get active and be a part of something special. You may wish to use your challenge time for yourself to quietly reflect and remember. You may like to create a team and invite family, friends or work colleagues to join you in honour of your baby and in support of our work.

How you can get involved
Just follow the simple steps below to set your own personal challenge or team challenge and get active for Aching Arms!

Choose your challenge
Do something you love or try something new – walk, jog, run, skip, dance, skate, scoot, cycle, swim, ride, row, or roll – move in a way that works for you.

Decide your distance
How far will you go? You might choose 1 mile a day, 10 miles a week, or a number that is significant and meaningful to you and your baby. Any set number of miles is fantastic. 

Select a location
Familiar places or faraway spaces – you may wish to stay local or travel further afield and take the opportunity to visit somewhere you’ve always wanted to go. 

Set a date(s) during the month of October
Do something every day, once a week, or choose a one-off challenge. At the weekend, in the evening, during your lunch hour – whenever is best for you. If you’re doing a daily challenge, it doesn’t have to be in the same place, you can mix it up as you would like - have fun and enjoy the adventure.

Your fundraising
Once your challenge is set, it’s time to share your story and encourage family, friends, colleagues, contacts, and associates to support your efforts. Join our official Miles in Memory campaign page and create your own JustGiving fundraising page, it’s a really simple and easy way to fundraise.
