The 34 Spring Challenge!

This year, to celebrate the 34th year of official twinning between Sheffield and Estelí we present… The 34 Spring Challenge.

Every year we raise money through local events and activities, including the annual Two Peaks Bike Ride which raises over £1000 each year. Due to Covid we have had to cancel the ride two years running. This year we are asking you to fundraise in your own way and in your own time, and then share it with others by taking part in The 34 Spring Challenge.

What is The 34 Spring Challenge?

The Challenge consists of you doing something 34 times during the dates of the event, which are Saturday 20th March-22nd April. 

This can be anything! You could walk, run, swim or cycle 34 miles in a day or over a period of time.  Not the sporty type? Why not cross 34 books off your reading list,  try baking 34 cakes, or even take 34 photos of spring!  The decision is entirely up to you!  Take a look at some of our activity ideas here.

This challenge is open to anyone, so why not do it together with a friend or family member. Our goal is to add up all the 34s from The Challenge and achieve the distance between Sheffield and Estelí, which is 5282 miles together. Therefore, for every mile that you run or every book that you read, you will be contributing towards that goal. 

How to take part

To take part, simply decide exactly what you want to do 34 times and donate to this fundraiser.  Please keep us updated on the progress of your challenge by either posting pictures on our Facebook event page or by taking part in our event on Eventbrite (links are down below). By keeping us updated, we will be able to track our target goal of 5282 miles. 

By taking part in this challenge and donating, you will be contributing towards a wide range of projects such as education, music and healthcare that will benefit the people of Estelí.
