Each year, The Fun Walk Trust host thousands of walkers, raising money for various charities, at Barleylands Farm, Billericay on the first Sunday in September.

Brainwave took part last year with supporters raising money for our cause. A Bonus Pot was also donated by generous local businesses and individuals, meaning that for every £1 raised for us last year, we were given an extra 50p from the Bonus Pot. 

This year, the organisers have decided to host a Virtual Fun Walk:

For 2020, in the light of the challenges presented by COVID-19 and the recognition that our local charities and good causes need our help more than ever, we made the decision to change to a Virtual Fun Walk happening in September. Organisations are invited to register for the virtual event, and their supporters can walk the distance (2k or 5k) anytime during the month.

Taking Part

Brainwave has registered as a beneficiary charity and now you can register using the form below to take part and raise money for our charity. 

You can walk either 2k or 5k anywhere, any time during September.

And they mean anywhere – including the garden, living room or up and down the stairs if self-isolating! We do ask that you walk within the latest Government guidance and stay safe at all times. Children participating in any of the distances should be accompanied.

Raising Sponsorship

We are a small UK charity that helps children with disabilities achieve greater independence through a range of specialist therapies. Our multidisciplinary team of qualified therapists create a unique Therapy Programme of exercises that can be continued at home.

We support children with a range of conditions including cerebral palsy, autism and Down syndrome.

We are adapting to the current situation by launching an online therapy service ‘Brainwave Online’. This will ensure families can access essential therapies from home via a secure video link with our qualified Brainwave therapists.

We need your support now more than ever. By raising sponsorship for your Family Fun Walk, you'll ensure we can continue helping even more families. You can raise money via FacebookJustGiving or Virgin Money Giving. You can also download a printable sponsorship form here.

£10 - could pay for a wobble board that a family can take away with them to continue their Therapy Programme at home.

£30 - could pay for one of our therapists to attend a training day so they can keep up-to-date with their specialism and deliver the best advice and support to families.

£100 - could pay for a set of specialist equipment which we loan to families, free of charge, so they can continue their child’s Therapy Programme at home.
