Change the game for your chosen Cause!

We know that activity and inclusiveness in community are one of the strongest aspects of building and maintaining mental wellbeing – whatever it is that you may be facing! So, get your community behind you in the Challenge and raise funds for that special project or for one of our featured mental health charities.

Here's 3 popular FUNraising ideas to help you take action for your chosen Cause*!

1.  RUN IT!
Turn your love for running into a force for good by setting yourself a personally running target for the week of the challenge. Want to run the length of a marathon (or more!) over the week in between work and your social events? We know life can get busy but for the week of the challenge, set a fitness goal and get your friends and family to sponsor your marathon effort! You can even
add your kms manually or via fitness apps directly to your fundraising page to show your progress! 

2.  WALK IT!
Do you live close to work? Do you catch public transport? If you live close enough, get your walking shoes on and take the walk to work challenge for the week of the event! If you catch public transport, you can get off a few stops before work (and before home on the way back) and walk the extra few kms (try 2km or more each way)! Show your friends and family you’re committed to making
a difference and take the walk home challenge! 

3.  RIDE IT!
Live too far from work to walk? Take the ride to work challenge! Hop on your wheels and set a goal to ride to and from work every day for a week! Let your friends and family know you’ve given up the car or bus for the week and to sponsor you to put your helmet on to ride to and from work. You can add the kilometres you ride manually or via a fitness tracker directly to your fundraising page so your supporters can see your progress! 

* Remember - these are just a few suggestions for you and your mates - you can always dream up your own ideas!
