Earn a Medal with our Fitness Challenge!
As the team here at the Paget’s Association look forward to its 50th anniversary year in 2023, we have launched a fundraising campaign to raise £50,000 by December 2023. Could you take part in our fitness challenge? Alternatively, scroll down for information on how to donate and for fundraising ideas.
Paget's Fitness Challenge
We are challenging you to feel fitter and healthier by taking part in our Fitness Challenge. Donations raised by achieving your challenge target will earn a Paget’s Fitness Medal and all money raised helps to support us in reaching our fundraising target of £50,000 for the 50th Anniversary of the Paget's Association in 2023.
Walk, Hike, Run, Swim, Cycle, or Wheel
We have achievement medals for people of any age or ability who can challenge themselves to go a little further than they normally would. You can walk, hike, run, swim, cycle or, if you use a wheelchair, wheel your way towards your goal.
How to get Involved
1. Set your Fitness Challenge - This is your challenge. You can choose the distance, the place, and the time you will take to do it. It does not matter whether it is half a mile, five miles or a marathon. What matters is that you push yourself safely towards a goal that is a challenge for you and will improve your level of fitness.
2. Choose your Sponsorship Method and Contact us - Once you have decided on your challenge, we can help you get started, whether you are using sponsorship forms or an online sponsorship platform, such as JustGiving. Contact us here or telephone 0161 799 4646 to request a sponsorship pack containing everything you need to start collecting donations. It does not matter if you have one sponsor or fifty, as long as you are improving your fitness and raising funds at the same time.
3. Make it Worthwhile - Ask your friends and family to sponsor you to raise funds for the Paget’s Association. They may even join you! All funds raised will go towards our 50th Anniversary target and your fitness will have improved.
4. Share your Achievement and Claim your Fitness Medal - To enable us to send you your Fitness Medal, you will need to let us know the details of the challenge you set, what you achieved, and the amount of money raised (please see the amounts required for each medal detailed below). In addition, if you have photos, we would love to see them. Some of you may wish to track your challenge, with a smart device, using an app, such as Fitbit or Strava. If you do this, do send us a screenshot of your achievement from your app.
