Lamp 5k extended to 20 July


You may have caught a snippet in our June newsletter which announced the extension of the Lamp 5k Trip to the Moon challenge to 20 July.

The move builds on huge interest in this year’s Trip to the Moon 5k campaign and it will help us to mark the 53rd anniversary of the moon landing. On July 20, 1969, astronaut Neil Armstrong stepped down from Apollo 11’s lunar module onto the surface of the moon, the first human in history to do so.

Please continue to log your miles in our Trip to the Moon 5k fundraiser. Whether it’s walking, running, cycling or roller-skating, every 5k activity you take part in will help us to reach our target of 384,400km – the distance from the Earth to the moon – and raise money for each kilometre covered. Plus, do continue to support us on social media by using #lamp5k and tag us in your posts!
