Will you Take it up, Give it up, or Change it up
with our health challenge?
This new challenge is all about making positive change. Pick one of the three (or do it as a team) and stick to it for a month, and get your friends to help you keep going by sponsoring you! Raise money, feel better and help Rethink Mental Illness.
Take it up - 30 mins of any exercise, 3 times a week
Give it up - cut out caffeine or alcohol
Change it up - swap chocolate, crisps and biscuits for carrot sticks
We’re also very excited to have artist working with us. She’s the one who made all the fantastic art you see on this page, and on the guide you can download HERE.
There’s also an SMS part to run alongside our new challenge – so that you really feel supported throughout the month. We’d love to help you make a positive change and let a new habit set in, so we want to help you with the hard part (Give it Up, Change it Up, Take it Up) by encouraging you and telling you how fabulous you are, directly to your phone, for just a month while you’re doing the challenge. You'll get a message a day for the first week, then just one every other day for the rest of the month. After that - we won't contact you without your permission, that's all part of our Supporter Promise.
So... how do I sign up?
Step 2 That's it! You'll get a welcome message with a link to set up a fundrasing page, and you're all set.
Here too is a little guide about the challenge:
And here's a couple of posters you can print:
And here's the lovely Donna:
I saw the Trihealthlon advertised and immediately thought 'What a great idea' and jogging came to mind. I am an 'on and off' jogger (more off than on) so I thought this would be a great way to motivate me and to raise money for a cause that I'm very passionate about, having had my own lived experience of mental illness. I jogged twice a week for the month of January, come rain or shine, and my fitness levels show a marked improvement, I have a wonderful sense of wellbeing, an amazing amount of support through sponsorship from people. I'd also like to mention my very good friend, Sam - without her, the jogging would have been an awful lot harder, she helped to keep me going - a massive thank you to everyone.
