Move it May 2021
Move it May is all about getting active and moving more in May. And there are plenty of ways to do it whilst covid-restrictions are still in place.
You don’t need to take on an Iron Man (although you can if you want!). You could just put a spring in your step by completing a walking challenge. Perhaps you could get into small groups and see who can rack up the most steps during the month, or set a team target to cover a certain distance.
Did you know? May is National Walking Month
The circumference of the Isle of Wight via the coastal path is 107km (67 miles).
It’s 29km (18 miles) from our Cancer Support Centre in Chandlers Ford to our Cancer Support Centre in Hythe.
Or you could get sponsored to run, cycle or swim. Whether you choose to tackle 5km or 500km, every penny you raise will help local families living with cancer.
Why not set yourself the challenge of doing an activity for a certain amount of time? The longer the time, the more impressive the challenge! You could organise a Zumbathon, or bounce, skip or spin your way to earning donations!
How about organising a group work-out and asking everyone for a donation to take part? You could do it on Zoom and ramp up the fun by encouraging fancy dress. How about dressing up as your favourite sportspeople, or doing it in 80s clothes to help celebrate our 40th birthday?
Organise a sports quiz and charge an entry fee for teams taking part. Ask colleagues for a donation in return for being allowed to wear their comfiest active-wear in the office.
If you work for a large company, office Olympics and Golf Days are often very popular choices, especially if you’re given the go ahead to organise it on what would usually be a work day!
If you’d rather take part in an organised event, there are lots to choose from across the Wessex region in May, including:
22-23 May – Jurassic Coast Challenge
31 May – Winchester Triathlon
For the little ones – a sponsored scoot could be the perfect way to encourage younger supporters to get out and active, or perhaps they could skip, hula hoop or roller skate their way through May!
