As most of us are stuck indoors we may as well make the most of our daily exercise! So why not join in with the Broughton Hall 100km in May challenge?!
This idea started off with staff challenging each other to walk, run or cycle 100km in the month of May and is a challenge created to raise funds for the Darby Rimmer MND (motor neuron disease) charity; a charity with many links to our Broughton Hall community.
You too can join in this challenge as an individual or as a team (friends or family), all you need to do is email Miss Dawson ( email@example.com) and let her know that you would like to enter the challenge. If you would like to enter as a team, please send the names of your team members and a team name. To track your kilometres, you can use your phones/any watch that tracks these two things and send a screenshot of your kilometres by email.
This is a great opportunity to get out of the house for some fresh air, exercise and some friendly competition amongst your peers; hopefully bringing a sense of togetherness and teamwork. You can also use this challenge as daily activity to add to your PE physical activity log! There are lots of benefits of physical activity and daily exercise, including: an increase in fitness and therefore health, concentration, happiness, reduced stress levels and socialising (even if it is online). You may even bump into a few people you know on your travels!
Use the built in features of your Fitbit device.
A Just Giving page has been set up to raise funds for the Darby Rimmer MND Foundation, any kindness and support would be much appreciated by all of those affected by this illness: justgiving.com/fundraising/hannah-roberts67.
100km to go... time to start.
