A new nationwide charity fundraising initiative is helping families or individuals reach their 10,000 steps while in lockdown.
'Step Up, Stay Put' aims to help people remain fit and healthy while we stay at home as well as supporting the many charities that are suffering due to the cancellation of fundraising events.
Event Fuel, who are running this new initiative pro bono, have decided to leave the choice of charity up to the participant, as so many charities have been greatly affected by the cancellation of events due to the spread of Covid-19.
However, if you don’t have one in mind, you can support The COVID Response Team (CRT) 'Keep Breathing' campaign, a not-for-profit team of engineers, medical doctors, students and innovators who have come together with the sole purpose of developing a new, open-source, easily manufactured ventilator.
"We came up with the Step Up, Stay Put concept as a solution to cancelled fundraisers. Charities that help people year-round are finding it very difficult through these times and people need new goals for exercise," Jamie Deasy Event Fuel Director commented, encouraging people to get on board.
Giv2Go will also be sharing daily online workouts too to help you step up while staying put.
