Lace Up for Macmillan Caring Locally
Take on the ‘Lace Up’ for Macmillan Caring Locally Challenge. This is you committing to completing a walk, run, cycle ride, climb….. any challenge of a chosen distance or time (even if spread across a few days if restricted).
This can be anywhere that is safe for you to do so. Your garden, balcony, pathway by your house, local beuty spot etc. and you can run, walk, crawl, climb or cycle it. This can even be done on a treadmill or static bike should you have access to one.
You can choose a one day challenge, you can spread it out, how about running a mile for 100 days? You can do it over any time.
Why not do something a bit different? Why not climb a mountain using your stairs?! Why not trek the distance of the Great Wall of China around your living room?!
If you can, we ask that you make a small donation to register.
Everything can be completed electronically with ‘Lace Up’ from registration, ideas on what to do, fundraising and sharing what you are doing, even our thank you letter, certificate and medal once you complete your challenge are sent via the post!
So ‘Lace Up’ those trainers, get your challenge set, raise money for Macmillan Caring Locally and have some fun along the way.
#AnyChallenge #Anywhere #AnyTime #LaceUp
WHY ARE WE DOING IT?
Fundraising is going to suffer for all charities and whilst we need our community now more than ever to ensure we give the best possible care to our patients we also want our community to keep physically and mentally active and hope that by signing up to ‘Lace Up’ you also feel part of something.
There is no better time than to start that exercise routine you have always wanted to do, be it a walk, run, cycle or something outside the box, now is the time to ‘Lace Up’
You can read more of why we have decided to launch ‘Lace Up’ for Macmillan Caring Locally now.
Please make sure you adhere to Government advice and only take this challenge on if safe to do so. You are allowed to leave the house for outdoor exercise, be it a run, walk or bike ride. We ask that you make sure you are keeping a safe distance from others at all times.
Local beauty spots such as the beach and the New Forest may or may not be accessible to you depending on where you live. We are allowed out but we urge you to restrict yourselves to your local areas. Think about where you are going before heading out, and make sure you tell someone you are out and when you expect to be back.
Protect yourself and protect others whilst taking part in ‘Lace Up’
