Unseen Neon Night Walk
Sat, 22 Oct 2016, 18:00 – Sun, 23 Oct 2016, 00:00 BST
Walk for those who couldn't walk away
Join our fun, neon sponsored team walk in beautiful Leigh Woods, Bristol, (BS8 3QB) to raise funds for Unseen’s work with the women and men who have been trafficked, exploited and enslaved, not just in Bristol but across the UK.
*Teams can be 2-4 people and your challenge is to walk as many times as you want around a 2.5 km course for as many hours as you like - teams have up to 6 hours from 6pm - midnight.
*Do it as a relay, take turns to walk a lap or two, or do it together.
*Set yourself a goal eg, 4 laps is 10km, 9 laps is just over half marathon - 22.5km.
The course is on a beautiful, sheltered track in Leigh Woods. There will be an 'event' village for teams to set up their team tent / gazebo where you can socialise between laps.
To get started, register by buying your personal ticket, set up a team name, then invite your team mates to enter using the team name, which can be done at a later date.
Sign Up last minute entries open until Wed.
Next step is to get people to sponsor you - we will provide tips and help. We are asking every participant to raise a minimum of £100 but we would love it if you would set a target of £200 (that’s just 10 friends /family donating £20 each – and your employer may be willing to match). As a reward we will be giving individuals that achieve the target of £200, by 10 days prior to the event, special Fund raising champions t shirts, to acknowledge your achievement.

Why a Neon Night Walk?
There are up to 13,000 victims of modern slavery in the UK today and the challenge is at night, as this is the time of day survivors find the most difficult to cope with and Neon is to highlight this often Unseen crime.
Entry and sponsorship
Entry £30 (+ admin/credit card fees) per person.
The entry fee will help the event costs, so individuals are expected to raise funds that will go towards Unseen’s work providing vital safe accommodation in the Bristol area for male and female survivors, and working with police, border agencies and government to tackle slavery head-on.
There will be rewards for teams reaching key targets, and whilst this is primarily a fundraising event we will have a few prizes!
