Fundraising challenges you can do at home.
As we adjust to disruptions to our routines and spend more time at home due to the coronavirus outbreak, here are some great new home-based fundraising challenges. Keep yourself healthy at home while you are social distancing and support CHSF at the same time by getting your nearest and dearest to sponsor you online.
Due to COVID19, the annual Ilkley Half Marathon will take place virtually this year in aid of helping to fund a revolutionary baby incubator for Leeds Congenital Heart Unit, the first of its kind in Europe.
Challenges with no equipment…
Just got the stairs? Your garden? The perimeter of your living room rug to keep you fit? We’ve got you covered! Some are great challenges to keep the kids active and will make a fantastic ‘show and tell’. “I climbed Mount Everest…kind of!!”

30 DAY FITNESS CHALLENGES
CLIMB MONT BLANC
CLIMB MOUNT EVEREST
Run (or walk!) the 26.2 mile distance of a marathon. If it feels a little far to go it alone, why not do it as part of a team? Either on a home treadmill, in the garden or when you can get further afield using your one hour exercise time. A great excuse to get outdoors or use your lunch break at home more wisely!
Challenges with fitness equipment…
If you are lucky enough to have your own keep-fit equipment at home why not attempt one of these challenges?
Run on a treadmill or cross trainer – a marathon 26.2 miles
Cycle on a static bike – London to Paris is 315 miles
Row on a rowing machine – Lake Windermere is 21 miles long
…or set your own challenge! Whatever you choose ask people to donate to your fundraising page. You could even ask for each mile to be sponsored?
