WE'RE CHALLENGING YOU TO WALK ON THE WILD SIDE FOR LIONS!

Could you walk or run 20,000 steps in a day, one for each of the 20,000 lions left in the wild?

Raise vital funds for Born Free this World Lion Day!

Between now and 10th August – World Lion Day – hundreds will take part, across the country, raising thousands of vital funds to protect lions in the wild and campaign to end their captive exploitation.

We NEED YOU to walk, with us, on the Wild Side, to raise money for Forever Lions – our flagship fund to ensure that all lions have a forever and a life worth living.  

Whether you’re a fitness fanatic, a couch to 5ker, or simply need something to motivate you away from Netflix, this challenge will have you stepping up for lions. So why not lace up your trainers and take on the 20,000 step challenge this summer?

UP FOR A ROARSOME CHALLENGE? 

Does it cost anything to take part?

Walk on the Wild Side is free to take part in, but there is a requirement to help raise vital funds for our work to support lions and other wildlife. 

Who can take part?

Anyone and everyone. Take part as a solo cat, with your family pride or alongside your ferocious friends. 

What if I am unable to walk 20,000 steps?

If you are one of our incredible supporters who isn't physically able to walk 20,000 steps, we invite you to take part in a way that suits you best. This could be spreading the walk over a number of days, completing an alternative fitness challenge (20,000 arm circles, or 20,000 punches), or a non-fitness challenge (give up your favourite snack for 20,000 minutes - that's just under a fortnight).

What's the fundraising target?

We're challenging every Wild Walker to raise a roarsome £100 to coincide with our Year of the Lion, in honour of our co-founder Bill Travers MBE's 100th birthday - don't forget to ask for sponsorship on social media!
