WHAT SPARKED THE IDEA BEHIND 25 X 25?
“I'd been trying to think of my new challenge. I chose 25 because I will be 25 this year and thought that this metric of 25kms for 25 days was something I could do”
WHAT CHARITY ARE YOU SUPPORTING AND WHY?
“I'm supporting Livin for this fundraiser and I'm an advocate for mental health. I’ve seen too many friends and family lose people important to them because of mental health struggles. The message just doesn't seem to be heard, so through this I want to raise the money so Livin can continue to do what they do and educate people. For this challenge, I hope to reach as many people as possible and spark conversations about mental health”
HOW CAN THE COMMUNITY CHASE THE VIBE WITH YOU?
"The community can chase the vibe in my favourite way possible: by moving their body, but to the theme of this challenge. Whether that be running or walking for 25 minutes, 25 burpees for 25 days, or even trying something new every day for the duration of the challenge. While they do this, they can also be starting the conversations around mental health and why they're choosing to join in on this"
WHAT IS YOUR MAIN OBJECTIVE?
“To raise awareness through movement and start important conversations. It would be amazing to reach the fundraising goal of $5000, but also to start more conversations, and lead people to check in on a friend, family member or even just check in on themselves. That's what I want from this. People to talk more and break down barriers”
