Staying active is important for our physical and mental health, so we have created the Lymphoma Action lockdown 100 challenge to encourage everyone to exercise either outside (during your daily exercise time, unless you are shielding), or in your home or garden. You could even get your whole household involved to see who can complete the challenge!
How does it work? It’s up to you! Simply ask your friends and family to sponsor you to do one of the following:
- Run 100 miles in 31 days (that’s 3.2 miles a day!)
- Cycle 100 miles in 31 days
- Commit to doing 100 repetitions of a certain exercise (star jumps, burpees, sit ups etc) every day for 31 days.
- Commit to doing 100 active minutes a day for 31 days - for instance you could combine 60 minutes of gardening, with 30 minutes of Pilates, and a 30 minute walk (don’t forget it could be a walk around your house!)
You can set up a Facebook fundraiser (we have some handy tips here!), or a JustGiving page to make online donations really easy. (You can also link your JustGiving page to Strava.) You will also be helping us to raise vital funds to keep our services running as we support even more people affected by lymphoma than ever, through this worrying and anxious time.
Sign up below to receive your virtual calendar so you can mark your progress and share on your social media to show how you are getting on, and encourage others to take up the challenge! (Don't forget to tag us if you do post - we're Lymphoma Action on Facebook, @LymphomaAction on Twitter and @Lymphoma_Action on Instagram.) Everyone who completes the challenge will receive a virtual medal for taking part!
We will be here to support you all the way so please don’t hesitate get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
