❤️ NEW ❤️ NEW ❤️ NEW ❤️
Because of the success of Solidarity Cycle — $80K in 2 years — we have decided to create another fitness challenge that we hope will attract a broader range of participants.
The new initiative is called For the Love of Grandmothers Fitness Challenge. When? Any time between: International Women’s Day – March 8 to Grandparents’ Day – September 8
Join For the Love of Grandmothers Fitness Challenge, with hosts Tikun Olam Gogos and Royal City Gogos.! Take an activity you already do like walking, jogging, hiking, swimming, playing pickle ball – whatever you love to do.
Set yourself a challenge and do it more, farther, harder, faster, or join an established fitness challenge like the Sun Run, Gran Fondo etc. Dedicate your effort to a grandmother you love. Ask friends and family to sponsor your efforts on the secure Stephen Lewis Foundation website. Complete your challenge between International Women’s Day, March 8, and Grandparents’ Day, September 8. ❤️Come out to celebrate with the Gogos in September (details to follow)❤️
We are inviting any non-cyclists to join in this event to see just how much money our region can raise for African grandmothers. We plan to launch on March 8, International Women’s Day.
Here is how it works:
For the Love Of Grandmothers Fitness Challenge is an open event for participants to design their own fitness challenge, register on the secure fundraising page, and invite their friends to support them.
Participants can walk, hike, swim, cycle in independent challenges they set for themselves or dedicate an organized challenge to a grandmother they love and fundraise for African grandmothers. For example one could walk in the Vancouver Sun Run, their kids could run half marathons, others could incorporate holiday hikes or pickle ball tournaments as fundraising events. Participants can create a challenge for their children and grandchildren to do together! In short, anything that gets you moving qualifies as a fundraising opportunity For the Love of Grandmothers!
Experience has taught us that it’s not how heroic the task is that raises money — it’s the fact that you ask for support.
Please: encourage your friends and family who are not cycling in our Annual Solidarity Cycle to join in. Publicize this event by sharing the poster (attached) and the website links https://fortheloveofgrandmothers.weebly.com/
