The Snowman Sketch challenge looks to get you outdoors this winter, making memories, having fun and taking part in raising some money for Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.
For this challenge, we’re inviting walkers, runners and cyclists to have some fun! You can take part individually – as your own personal challenge – or as a family. Please ensure you’re complying to the current Government lockdown restrictions, ensuring you’re exercising locally.
Using the trend of GPS art, we are looking for you to create your very best snowman! Check out these amazing sketches from some of our supporters below.
The challenge will run up until Sunday 28th February giving you a longer period to complete your chilly challenge – wrap up warm!
By using a GPS Tracking app such as Strava or Map My Run, you will plot your route before sketching out your snowman by getting your legs moving! The tracking app will follow your route which will leave behind your snowman trail.
Everyone signed up will receive a Snowman Medal for completion of their challenge! To prove completion of the challenge please send a photo of your Snowman trail to firstname.lastname@example.org

How your fundraising helps those who need us most
People with lung cancer are at the highest risk of serious illness if they contract COVID-19. Many are also faced with the very realistic prospect that their treatment may be postponed. Understandably, this is creating high levels of worry and anxiety.
Demand for our Ask the Nurse telephone helpline has increased by 93% during the COVID-19 pandemic compared with the previous year, showing that now more than ever, our patients need our support and with your help, we can continue to make this possible.
By signing up for our Snowman Sketch Challenge, you are helping to fund our Ask the Nurse freephone helpline for patients and families.
