Our friends at Meningitis Now have shared their new digital fundraiser which they've just launched, The 8,000 steps a day challenge…
Pre-Covid, they estimated 8,000 people per year contract bacterial or viral meningitis in the UK – that’s 22 people, every day. To help kick the New Year off, they've launched a Facebook fundraising challenge – 8,000 steps a day in January and we invite you to join us in taking part.
Sign up and you’ll get:
- Your very own Meningitis Now t-shirt
- A super useful steps tracker to help you keep on top of your daily steps
- Support from their friendly team throughout the challenge, via their exclusive Facebook group
The challenge is free to take part in, with no minimum fundraising pledge; they are simply asking everyone to raise what they can.
When you register to take part, a Facebook fundraising page will be automatically set up for you, that you can then share with family and friends for donations. You can register for this here: https://link.edgepilot.com/s/1e780f4d/1SGU4Q0Fu0KxCAZFeMaGRA?u=https://socialsync.app/f/el-63e78zlv0jd8?fbclid=IwAR2C_ICN40k3Fw2nSQXZPdqOdhR5sgYcLSR85pBO0vg__wyUDidbfxj7rIw
If you don’t have Facebook, that’s not a problem at all, you can register at the below link, and instead of a Facebook fundraiser, a social sync fundraising page will be set up for you page (works very similarly to a Just Giving page). You can then share this with friends and family instead. When you receive your welcome pack, you’ll also receive a sponsorship form and a steps tracker to help you along the way: https://link.edgepilot.com/s/6d01763e/rmD0ZTYpkUSXa1mQ77qfzg?u=https://socialsync.app/f/el-63e78zlv0jd8/fm-03r9qz47kkd6
We'll keep you posted on Team CG's progress and would love to see yours.
