FROM Friday 21st May until 31st May, QPR in the Community Trust will be inviting you to Walk From Home once again to help raise money and awareness for the QPR Tiger Cubs, in what will hopefully be our last virtual challenge.
After the huge success of our first Walk From Home challenge last spring, which raised in excess of £15,000 for our dedicated Down’s syndrome football team, the Trust are keen to top last year’s support and make this our most successful walk.
Next week will also see QPR’s annual celebrations of what is now commonly known as #BobbyZamoraDay, on the seventh anniversary of that memorable afternoon at Wembley Stadium.
To make #WalkFromHome2 that bit more of a challenge, the idea is simple:
- We want you to walk 10,000 steps or 5 miles and cover the distance between W12 and Wembley
- Sponsor your walk by donating to QPR Tiger Cubs
- Post a photo of your walk on social media using #WalkFromHome2 and nominate three friends to do the same.
The Tiger Cubs is QPR’s official football team for children and young people with Down’s syndrome.
Formed in 2009, we have arranged 11 sponsored walks for the Tiger Cubs over the last decade, which has seen participants from all over the world raising vital funds for our beloved group.
All of the money raised from the walks goes directly to the running of the Tiger Cubs team and also allows them to travel to events and purchase new football equipment.
Club ambassador Andy Sinton and QPR in the Community Trust CEO Andy Evans will also be walking from Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium to Wembley Stadium as we look to replicate the walk taken by many seven years ago.
Trust CEO Andy Evans said: “Following the postponement of last year’s Tiger Feet Walk, we were blown away by the reaction from everyone right across all areas of the club and to raise the amount we did was fantastic.
“Of course, we are disappointed that another season has passed, and we have been unable to do our annual Tiger Feet Walk, but hopefully with what will be our last virtual event we will be able to help raise another huge amount, which would be so greatly appreciated especially at what continues to be a difficult time.
“QPR fans are always brilliant in showing their support for the Tiger Cubs and their generosity has played a massive part in keeping the team going in recent years and I am sure this year will be no different.”
