How Will We Celebrate The Finish?

We are starting to make plans for how we will celebrate the completion of our challenge. Everyone that has taken part will each receive a certificate of achievement plus we hope to make a celebratory video of all our efforts over the past few months.

We Need You!

We are putting a call out for all our wonderful participants to send in a video clip and photographs of yourself cheering as we approach the finish line of our challenge.

We also want to see videos of you doing silly walks, the moonwalk, or even a fun dance so we can include in our celebratory video. We plan to then share the video on our website and social media pages to show supporters our group achievement!
