The Great Barrier Reef, off the coast of North-Eastern Australia, is the largest coral reef system in the world. It spans almost 350,000 square kms (bigger than the UK) which clearly means it deserves a space on our Wonders of the World jigsaw! To earn this medal, you will need to accumulate a distance of either 30km, 100km or 200km during the month of June, 2020.
We have provided a colourful coral scene for this corner piece medal with some fish swimming around the reef. The highlights are again in Bronze, Silver and Gold, based on the distance you choose to aim for (30km, 100km and 200km).
Our chosen charity for the WotW Challenge Series is 'When You Wish Upon A Star'. When You Wish Upon A Star grant magical wishes to children with life threatening illnesses. They make memories for a Wish child and their family to remember for a lifetime. By granting a Wish, this enables the family to have a truly amazing time forgetting about hospital routines, doctor's appointments and the gruelling treatments that have become a daily occurrence and allowing the whole family to smile, laugh and enjoy life!
Challenge Events are all about pushing yourself to complete the distance so everyone is a winner if they can reach their target. So, in addition to your event reward, we have three prize boxes for the most accumulated donations and three lucky draw prize boxes to be won by anyone who completes their chosen distance, each worth £25!
