Children taking part in the Mini GEAR are encouraged to raise a small amount of money to help a local cause.
They can, of course, choose any charity of their choice - or opt to support the event's official partner charity.
The official 2019 partner charity is Nelson's Journey.
Nelson’s Journey is a Norfolk charity that supports children and young people living in the county who have experienced the death of a special person in their life. The charity supports hundreds youngsters each year; providing them with opportunities to express their emotions, remember the person that has died, meet others going through a similar experience and learn coping strategies to release strong emotions such as anger in safe ways. Nelson’s Journey services are provided free of charge thanks to the generous fundraising that takes place to support the charity.
