Challenge yourself in our fantastic Virtual Fitness Festival!

In September last year we launched our first ever Virtual Fitness Festival!  Since then we've been humbled by the amazing support of the Ayrshire community taking on their own special challenges to help raise vital funds for the hospice at a vital time. 

  • Chris & Caitlin ran 10K every day for five days!
  • Ayr Young Farmers took on their own Polar Dash Challenge and went for a dip in the sea!
  • Gregor took on the Five Peaks Challenge... in 48 hours!
  • Diane & Morven ran 10K every day for 10 days! 
  • Scott is running 1083 miles in the Virtual Lands End to John o Groats!
  • Alistair took on 50km in his own Pedal Power Cycle Challenge!

You could take on your own personal challenge too!  Whatever you do, you will be helping many people and their families, living with life limiting illness, under the care of the Ayrshire Hospice; whether it be at home, in the community or within our inpatient unit at the hospice itself.

The only thing we ask is that you make sure that your challenge is safe to do so and follows the current government guidelines paying attention to all restrictions and ensuring that, if you are doing your challenge with any other people , you are social distanced at all times.  Further information can be found at https://www.gov.scot/publications/  .

So what's next?

First you should email [email protected] to register your interest and what challenge you are thinking of doing.  In turn we'll provide you with any details, offer further advice and get you to complete a volunteer fundraiser form.  Then you can click here to set up your fundraising challenge page and start fundraising!  When setting up your page and choosing an appeal click the option 'I'm fundraising for the hospice' and then complete the form and on the event tab click 'Fitness Festival'.

When you're all set you can invite all your friends, family and colleagues to make a donation to your challenge fundraising.

There's no sign up fee but we do hope that each participant can fundraise £50+ for the hospice!  Just think, if we sign up 200 people we'll raise £10K for the hospice!

Each fundraising participant will receive an Ayrshire Hospice T-Shirt (before your challenge), a unique commemorative event medal and certificate (after completion of challenge).

For further information email [email protected] or call 01292 288488.

Let's do this!
