Take on 250 for RNIB
I had always wanted to give yoga a try and this challenge gave me the motivation to actually do it. I loved it – it really helped my focus and wellbeing, and I raised money for a very important cause at the same time. A win win! - Eleanor
How it works:
- Choose your challenge: walking, running, cycling or swimming; cake-baking or singing; dancing or knitting – it's all up for grabs!
- Decide your 250 goal: it could be 250 minutes or hours, involve 250 steps or laps, or 250 repetitions.
- Pick a timeframe that suits you – complete it all in one go, spread it over three months, or anything in between
- Choose your fundraising target. We suggest you aim to raise £100 but it's up to you, just raise as much as you can.
