AROUND THE WORLD TRACKER
WE'VE DONE IT !!
Our 40,000 km journey around the World is complete!
A year today we set off and after 365 days of people getting active, sharing their efforts we have walked, ran, cycled, scooted and jumped a grand total of 42,413.08 km!
The pandemic and the many lockdowns not only highlighted the amazing work carried out by charities and volunteers, it also highlighted the value of our opemn green spaces, the importance of our physical and mental health and what strength there is in community spirit.
Helping Broxbourne Travel The World, getting up and getting active and conquering this epic distance, I hope has helped celebrate all these things and of course I hope you all had fun!
