Stockport charity, Supportability, have launched their Lock-down Challenge, encouraging local people to get creative and bring traditionally outdoor fundraising activities inside the home.
Like many charities, Supportability has been hit hard by the coronavirus. Their planned fundraising activities and events have been cancelled and their services have been greatly impacted affecting around 300 of their Service Users.
To help combat this and continue to raise valuable funds, they’re introducing the ‘Supportability Lock-down Challenge’ where you can complete a virtual challenge of your choosing from your home. Some of you may have been training for a marathon which has been cancelled or postponed or you may just need a fun way to keep fit at home.
Here are some ideas of what you could do:
- Complete a 5k, 10k, half marathon or marathon in your garden
- Climb the height of Mount Snowdown going up and down your stairs
- Cycle from Lands’ End to John o’ Groats indoors (on a home trainer or exercise bike)
- Complete a ‘Tough Mudder’ style obstacle course in your garden
It doesn’t even need to be something sporty. You could:
- Host an online quiz night
- Host an online Zumba-thon
- Have a sponsored silence
All they ask is that you make a minimum donation of £10 to us to enter as well as fundraising for them.
