The campaign


The campaign will last 1 million minutes

The 1 million miles for Ellie campaign will last for 1 million minutes from the launch date on 20/05/2015. The timer below shows how many minutes are left to get involved!

feetWe are aiming to reach 1 million miles...

You can add either real miles or "virtual" miles to the campaign.  You could dedicate the miles from an activity such as hillwalking or cycling or you can add a virtual mile simply by donating or interacting with us on social media.  See below for how to add a mile.

Do something extraordinary

Pick something from Ellie's bucket list or yours - make one if you haven't already, anything is possible.  Give the campaign some energy by doing something extraordinary and adding the miles travelled during your activity to the campaign - whether you do a triathlon, climb a mountain, ski down a mountain, kayak for miles, camel ride it, bungee jump it, parachute it, cycle it, sail it, swim it, hike it, horse ride it, fly it, dance it, tough mudder it or munroe bag it!

Use social media

Add a virtual mile to the campaign by supporting us on social media to help spread the word. Instead of contributing actual miles, each time someone gets involved with our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts a virtual mile is automatically added to the campaign. See below for more details
