Want to get motivated to keep fit in 2020? Saint Michael’s hospice is setting a feel-good New Year challenge to help people get outside, get fit and make a difference – one step at a time!
The Marathon in a Month challenge invites people to complete 26.2 miles between January 20 and February 20th, by running, jogging or walking. This can be done in bite-sized stages, to fit in with family, work and other commitments.
While participants kick start their 2020 with an easy, flexible fitness challenge, funds they raise through sponsorship or a donation will help local families living with terminal illness and bereavement.
Entry to the Marathon in a Month is free and all runners will receive a supporter pack with tips on taking part, raising funds plus a medal when they complete the challenge.
Saint Michael’s plans to spend almost £6million to provide its vital care – which includes caring for people living with terminal illness in their own homes, at the Harrogate-based hospice, and running the specialist bereavement support service Just ‘B’.
Anyone raising more than £100 in sponsorship will also receive a special Team Saint Michael’s running vest to remind them of their achievement.
The charity would love to see lots of people joining in with this challenge which can be done in your own time, by yourself or as a group, in bite-sized chunks by walking to work, running a mile a day, or even doing it all in one go!
Chief executive of Saint Michael’s Tony Collins said: “New year is the ideal time to take up a personal fitness and wellbeing challenge. Our marathon in a month is an easy, accessible way to feel fitter in 2020.
“What better way to stay motivated to your goal, than by knowing that every step you take will be bringing care and comfort to local people living with terminal illness and bereavement. We hope people will make a donation or raise sponsorship to keep themselves motivated and every pound will make a difference to our patients and families. “
