The Big reachout race

YOUR CHALLENGE, YOUR WAY!

WHAT IS THE BIG REACHOUT RACE?

The Big ReachOut Race is a challenge like no other! Complete 243 miles (the physical distance between the locations we work. London – Leeds – Manchester – Liverpool) when, where and how it suits you. 

This flexible fundraiser can be completed across a week, 2 weeks or a month at anytime in the year. Make it a solo challenge or tackle it with a team. You can walk, run, cycle, swim or skate – as long as you clock up the miles, that’s all that matters.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?

If you’re looking for a way to get fit, this is the perfect opportunity for you! It’s also a fantasticway to boost team morale (should you wish to take part in a team) getting everyone to sign up to complete a specific number of miles.

WHY SHOULD YOU RAISE FOR REACHOUT?
We need your support more than ever, as we aim to work with over 1,000 young people in 2021/22. It costs £10,000 to deliver a year long project of targeted intevention for 10 young people.  By choosing to take part in the Big ReachOut Rae you will be directly supporting our young people to develop their character, raise aspirations and improve their academic attainment.

CASE STUDY

“At first, I was really hesitant to take on the Project Leader role, despite having mentored with ReachOut. However, with the support of the team I’ve really developed my skills. For example, at the Mentee Graduation, I stood up in front of 200 people and presented an award which is something I would never ever have been able to have done before, and isn’t an opportunity I could gain in my other situations.”

Amy McCutcheon, Project Leader at ReachOut Academy, Dean Trust Ardwick, Manchester.

CASE STUDY 03

“Being able to spend the summer working at Rede Partners, was an amazing experience. Whether it was working in HR or Finance, I learned so much about the world of private equity, made great connections with fantastic people and I got to learn first-hand what it would be like to work there! I really believe that I can go onto build the career I want now I’ve been a part for a workplace for real”

Victor Adekunle, 18 years old, ReachOut Ambassador, London

CASE STUDY 02

“When I first my mentee, she was very reluctant to participate in the sessions. Now, I see a completely different person! Her confidence has grown and she is happy to join in! She still has some self-doubt when it comes to academic work, but that’s what I hope to help her overcome, because she is a very bright person!

Through mentoring, I’ve learnt I’m a lot more patient than I realised. There will be days where she refuses to participate and those are the days that I really see the importance of the character strengths, for both the mentees and the mentors. It also makes it easier for the mentee to understand the character strengths, when I use them myself”

Myrtle, ReachOut Club mentor at Tufnell Primary School, London

CASE STUDY 01

“There are more distractions than ever outside of school, and the commitment of our students to attend ReachOut sessions is testament to the value they place on the relationships they foster there, and the challenge and enjoyment they provide.

ReachOut’s focus on communication skills and character development has become an important aspect of our provision of support for these students. The opportunity to relate to a positive role- model other than their usual teachers is key to the programme’s impact, and the evidence of this has been seen in the students’ attendance, resilience and to their overall progress across all the subjects in the school.”

Thomas Janvrin, Assistant Vice Principal at the Petchey Academy London
