Take on #Challenge40 for Big C cancer charity
Posted: Thu, 02 Apr 2020 11:00
Norfolk's cancer charity Big C is challenging people to be active for 40 minutes for 40 days and help it continue to support people living with cancer.
To celebrate its 40th anniversary, the charity has launched #Challenge40 - a fun way to keep active while helping it to raise vital funds to continue its work.
You can take part in the challenge by doing 40 minutes of exercise a day, either on 40 consecutive days, or on 40 days between April 1 and May 31 2020.
Your forty minutes of exercise could be anything – a daily run or walk, some at-home exercise routines, or simply getting active by doing some gardening – you decide how you're going to stay active each day.
Getting involved is easy to do, all you have to do is:
- Click here to sign up and pay the £10 registration
- If you would like to, set up a fundraising page and encourage your friends and family to donate to your efforts
- Share what activity (or activities) you plan to do for the next 40 days, including photos, by tagging Big C on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and using the #Challenge40 hashtag
- Get active and have fun!
- When completed, you'll receive a shiny winner's medal!
All funds donated will help Big C continue to provide vital care and support for people affected by cancer, during these challenging times.
To ensure everyone stays safe, please make sure follow Government guidelines around social distancing, and only go out once a day (if permitted) to do your 40 minutes of exercise. More information can be found here – www.gov.uk/coronavirus
