How it works:

  • Choose your challenge: walking, running, cycling or swimming; cake-baking or singing; dancing or knitting – it's all up for grabs!
  • Decide your 250 goal: it could be 250 minutes or hours, involve 250 steps or laps, or 250 repetitions.
  • Complete it all in one go, spread it over the whole month of January, or anything in between
  • Choose your fundraising target. We suggest you aim to raise £100 but it's up to you, just raise as much as you can.
