Join CRY and take on the 25 Million Metre challenge to mark CRY’s 25th anniversary.
We are asking all of our supporters to join this challenge to help raise awareness and vital funds for CRY.
To honour this milestone, CRY has partnered with the Million Metre Challenge (founded by CRY supporter and former myheart member Tony Eames), to our 25 Million Metre Challenge.
This is a virtual challenge with a difference! Rather than heading out alone to take on a challenge we want all of our supporters together to help us achieve 25 Million Metres from 1st February to 2nd May!
You can take part on your own or set your own virtual team of up to 12 participants, set how far/how many metres you would like to contribute and help CRY clock up the metres together – whether that be walking, running, cycling, rowing or swimming – it all counts.
Challenge yourselves within your teams to see who can gain the most metres or work collectively and aim for a target.
Due to the amazing efforts of our supporters we have surpassed our 25 Million Metre Target and are so close to 50 Million Metres Pledged! Join #TeamCRY and help us double our initial target whilst raising awareness.
The challenge comes with one difference from all other virtual challenges – using world leading technology created by the Million Metre Challenge, means no more manual logging of metres, no more sending photos/screenshots as proof to CRY – it is all automated through the Million Metre Challenge website and links directly to your Strava, Fitbit and other compatible fitness apps to get the information.
We appreciate that not everybody will feel like an athlete or may have never taken part in a competitive event before, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get involved! There are many ways to help CRY reach its target with even a daily stroll contributing to the total. To give you some inspiration, please find some ideas below, click the cards for more information/helpful links.
We would love to see how everybody is taking on the challenge. Please make sure to take photos and videos of your adventure and post them on social media tagging or copying in CRY’s accounts or send us a write up about your challenge to be added to the CRY website via our upload form via the button below.
We would also like to encourage you to raise funds through sponsorship during your challenge to help raise vital funds for CRY. We have set the 25 Million Metre challenge up on three major fundraising platforms to help make it easy as possible. Please feel free to choose your preferred method.
