What can I do for my challenge? We wanted to create a FUNdraiser for everyone, no matter what it is that you want to do. We’ve put together a few ideas below but the possibilities are endless and we love seeing how creative our supporters can be.
Walking Challenges Get on your comfiest shoes and take to the streets for a walking challenge. If you’re staycationing, why not check out the local area and make it a challenge! See how many steps you can do as you explore your destination. Did you have to cancel your holiday? Why not theme your walk around your holiday? You could walk try and walk the length of Copacabana beach (2.2 miles!) or walk the distance of Disneyland. If you have a treadmill at home, why not check out these YouTube videos where you can take on your favourite holiday destinations from the comfort of your home!
SwimathonsWith pools opening again, it’s the perfect time to dust off your swimming costume and head back into the water. Whether it’s swimming the length of the English channel or doing as many laps as you can, swimming is a perfect summer challenge for all you water babies out there!
Virtual Parties and QuizzesWhat kind of holiday would it be if we didn’t let our hair down for a party? We’ve seen some fantastic virtual fundraising since March from virtual dance parties to pub quizzes. Why not get dressed up and get your friends and families together over Zoom for a fabulous evening of fun?
Baking and CookingDo you think of yourself as the next Mary Berry? Why not use those talents to raise money for our hospitals by hosting a baking or cooking event? Whether it’s showing off your bakes on Instagram, selling your cakes to your neighbours or doing a live cooking tutorial on Zoom, we’d love to see what you cook up. From around the world cooking challenges to holiday themed bakes, there’s plenty of ideas!
Arts and CraftsWe’d love to see how you can get creative to make some art. You could hit the beach to make some impressive sandcastles, make some beautiful crafts, master every dance challenge TikTok has to offer or put on your own socially distanced summer show. Why not use your talents to help our hospitals?
