We are supporting Pilgrims Hospices My 10 Any 10 Challenge. From Monday 10th June 2019 we want everyone to take on a challenge and help raise money that will go towards funding the vital work that Pilgrims Hospices provides.
“The team at Pilgrims Hospices is so pleased that Active Life will be supporting our My 10 Any 10 fundraising initiative this summer. Not only will they be helping us to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of our Cycle Challenge event but it is also a great way for the local community to take on their own challenge in support of their local adults hospice. As a charity we have to raise £11 million through voluntary donations which we can only achieve with the support of our local community. The money that Active Life raise through My 10 Any 10 will ensure that Pilgrims is able to be there for the next family who needs our specialist care and support.” Leila @ Pilgrims Hospices Fundraising Team.
We want to encourage everyone, Active Life members and non-members, to try a NEW activity or challenge for 10 days. You get to decide what challenge you take on, whether it be just one goal that you set for yourself, or multiple activities or challenges over 10 days. Every pound you raise or donate will go directly towards the care of people living with incurable illness here in east Kent and their families.
There is an amazing variety of things that you could incorporate and have a go at, including; a game of badminton or tennis, a spin class, roller skating, a yoga or fitness class, a swimming challenge, or even something in the gym! So you may decide to try 10 different activities that you wouldn’t normally do, or perhaps aim to complete one big challenge like cycle for 10 hours!
Check out some ideas of activities that you could take part in and also some awesome fitness taster sessions by clicking here. Please note numbers are limited for the taster classes so booking is advised to avoid disappointment. Members can book via the app or by phoning the centre directly and non-members can phone either Kingsmead Leisure Centre on 01227 769818 or Herons Leisure Centre on 01227 742102.
Not only that, but each person that donates £10 will automatically be entered into our prize draw. Because we want you all to really go for it and try something new, the more sessions that you attend and the more you fundraise and donate, the greater your chances in the prize draw! Plus there are not just one, but TEN prizes up for grabs! First prize is a 10 month, 5 star membership (to the equivalent of a single, adult 5* membership) and nine other prizes which are 1 month, 5 star memberships (to the equivalent of a single, adult 5* membership).
