To honour the 25-year milestone, CRY has partnered with the Million Metre Challenge (founded by CRY supporter and former myheart member Tony Eames), to launch our ’25 Million Metre Challenge’.
This is a virtual challenge with a difference! Rather than heading out alone we want you to help us achieve 25 Million Metres from 1st February to 2nd May together!And DON'T WORRY, there aren't any excel spreadsheets to fill out. Simply link to Strava or Fitbit to automatically sync all of your data straight into your challenge. Check out the FAQ's to link to your other fitness apps - we've got the majority covered.
You’ll set-up your own challenge, set your own inspiring target and help CRY clock up the metres together with all its supporters and fundraisers - whether that be walking, running, cycling, rowing or swimming - it all counts
Getting involved couldn’t be easier; simply click Join Challenge or the button above and build your challenge.
When building your challenge consider the following:
If you’re setting up a team challenge, simply invite them with a unique code (provided after your challenge is created) ensuring only they can join your team.
Should you have questions along the way, check out the FAQ’s, drop a note on the CRY Facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org
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:
Rather than enter manual entries, link your activities to the your MMC account.
Visit your profile to make the connection to Strava and/or Fitbit
If you use an alternative app, check out our FAQ's to create a link via your Strava account.
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 event up on three major fundraising platforms to help make this as easy as possible. Please feel free to choose your preferred method:
Please note that if you choose to raise funds on Facebook, it is very important that you send us the link to your page once it is set up, and also edit your page details to include the title of the event as this will mean we can allocate any funds raised towards your participation in the event.
We are also on hand to help you with any issues you may have in setting up your page. To get help or to send your Facebook fundraising link please email email@example.com or call 01737 363 222 and the CRY fundraising team will be pleased to help.
