You could run or swim, cycle or hike; it can be a big race or your own personal challenge you could even arrange a sports day. It doesn’t matter how you decide to Be Active. What really counts is keeping the phones running! And your efforts will help to make sure that the next caller is heard.
Join An Organised Race
Sign up to Be Active and ask your friends and family for support and sponsorship! Run, walk, cycle, swim or crawl through the mud there’s no shortage of events for you to join. Sign up then create your fundraising page right here.
You could ask for a donation for finishing the event or $10 per km. Your effort will keep the phones running.
Create Your Own Challenge
It could be climbing Everest or climbing the stairs every day at work, riding your bike around Australia or walking 10km every day for a month.
Set your challenge and create your fundraising page – tell all your friends what you’re doing and why. If you have a very unique challenge why not contact your local paper or radio station and see if they’ll help to spread the word.
Start a Sports Day
Golf, bowls, tennis or footy – a sports day is a great way to get lots of people active and involved. You could even have a classic school sports day featuring three-legged, sack and egg and spoon races! As well as selling tickets you could have a BBQ, sell drinks and ask local businesses for prizes to raffle or auction.
How others did it
Be Like the Tenacious Turtles
The Tenacious turtles are an incredible group of swimmers who travelled form South Coast NSW all the way to the UK to swim the English Channel. Lifeline Australia was chosen as a team members father used to volunteer for our service. The dedication in the training, preparation and raising significant funds for Lifeline Australia was inspirational!
The hard work paid off, the Tenacious Turtles raised $11, 209.97
