Miles in Their Shoes, Steps for Stories

Updated: Jul 4, 2023

Why should you join the adventure?

At Kids Club Kampala, our mission is to uplift and empower the communities we serve. By joining together, we have the ability to help break the cycle of poverty in Kampala. Through participating in the journey “Miles in Their Shoes, Steps for Stories” you can help transform the lives of children and their families in Kampala by supporting our Feeding, Protecting, Educating and Skilling programmes.

What is “Miles in Their Shoes, Steps for Stories?”

“Miles in Their Shoes, Steps for Stories" is a virtual expedition from Birmingham to Kampala, Uganda. The 5,567 mile journey can be accomplished by walking, running, cycling or swimming with a group of 15+ where you will track your progress on the world walking app.

The challenge will take you on an inspiring adventure as you hear stories directly from our communities in Kampala.

Each step you take, and pound you raise will help to write a new story of hope.

Through your journey from the UK to Kampala, you will reach milestones where you will learn more about the various projects that support the communities we serve in Kampala. These milestones are an opportunity for you to gain a deeper understanding of the impact you are making as well as give us a chance to motivate and inspire one another as we keep pushing forward!

How you can join

You can join us on this 10-week journey by sharing the adventure with your family, friends, church group and community members and signing up as a team of 15+. If you do not have a team big enough don’t worry! You can join a like-minded community, eager to fundraise and get fit.

Sign up as a group or as an individual by Monday, June 19th, and receive a Kids Club Kampala t-shirt, fundraising guide, welcome card, and regular challenge updates. Together we can help vulnerable children and families of Kampala survive and thrive!

After completing your route and raising your target of £150 you’ll receive your very own Miles in Their Shoes medal to wear with pride! Through this challenge, your participation and fundraising can help lift the children and families of Kampala out of poverty by providing them with life changing opportunities and resources.
