For the Love of Grandmothers Fitness Challenge
Ongoing from March 18 to September 13, 2020
Participants choose their own time
This Greater Van Gogos’ initiative is a virtual walk of 17,000 km from Ethiopia to South Africa through the 15 countries supported by the SLF. Organizers will collect kilometres reported to them by email (1 hour of activity = 5 km) and will collect donations in the form of pledges via a secure online donation page on the Stephen Lewis Foundation website.
Participants may choose their own activity to perform in their own time and space – home, outdoors, etc. – and may ask their friends to donate to their goals. Participants may also join as a group, collect donations and contribute to the total kilometres. This is a perfect fundraiser for these times of social distancing.
To donate or sign up and for more details, visit “For the Love of Grandmothers” website.
This is a regional event – free for all! Contact Janine Reid, FLOGfitness@gmail.com or 604-759-3134.
Funds raised by this regional activity go to the Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation to help provide the resources needed by the resilient, courageous grandmothers in Africa as they work to build a better future for the children they are raising, and for their communities.
