Fit in Fifty: The Great Gingerbread Fitness Challenge
January is a time for resolutions. After we’ve all enjoyed our Christmas dinners, our resolutions tend to be around fitness. To help keep you on track, we’ve launched our Great Gingerbread Fitness Challenge: Fit in Fifty!
You have the whole of February to complete your challenge. You could run 50 miles over the month, do 50 star jumps a day, walk for 50 minutes a day – whatever you want! All you need to do is come up with a challenge based around the number 50 that suits your skills and complete it over the month of February. All in aid of single parent families!
We’re asking everyone taking part to aim to raise £50. To help you achieve that target, not only will you have the support of the Gingerbread fundraising staff, but – if you’d like – you can join our Facebook group to share tips and tricks with your fellow participants.
2020 saw the 50th anniversary of the first ever Gingerbread group. Gingerbread peer support groups were set up to combat the loneliness that single parents can feel. From there, a whole community of single parents was sparked, with volunteers across the country forming their own support groups for single parents. Now, there’s a network of Gingerbread peer support groups across England and Wales, run entirely by volunteers and supported by Gingerbread.
