The Upbeats Walk is back on Saturday 23 April ahead of Charlton Athletic’s last home game of the season against Shrewsbury Town!
After two years of running the event virtually, this year we will be welcoming people back for a 9-mile walk between CAFC’s Training Ground (via Footscray Road) to The Valley. Walkers will be provided with lunch upon arrival at The Valley ahead of both the Upbeats and first-team matches.
Building from the success of the past two years, which saw supporters find creative ways to do the walk in their local community, we are also offering people who can’t join us in person the chance to join the walk virtually from anywhere in the world and help to raise vital funds for the Charlton Upbeats.
The Charlton Upbeats programme is for young people and adults with Down’s syndrome and has been running for 14 years. The programme is entirely funded by voluntary donations and your support is crucial in helping CACT to continue the programme in the future.
This year’s fundraising target is £30,000. Entry is free for all participants, but we do ask all supporters to try to fundraise a minimum of £100 if doing the walk in person, or £10 if completing the walk virtually.
