Medical support transforming lives

Create you own Virtual Challenge in aid of TVF


   

Due to the impact of Covid-19 where organised challenges have been cancelled or postponed we are calling on our fantastic supporters to take up a virtual challenge to raise funds to help ensure that TVF can go on providing vital medical support, equipment and grants to medical students facing extreme hardship during their studies. 

A challenge could also help to maintain your physical and mental wellbeing all while you are helping to transform lives through the funds you raise. Due to the impact of COVID-19 please ensure your virtual challenge adheres to guidelines on social distancing and leaving your home.

Take part in your own 'Virtual Challenge' - step, run swim .....  you create the challenge and take part on your own or with friends! 

Your 'virtual challenge' could be a run, bike, swim, golf or other type of activity you like to do. The challenge is virtual in name only, as to participate you still have to complete the challenge at the selected distance during the event dates you have set. 

You decide the location, at a time, place and pace that is convenient for you.  You have the freedom and flexibility to fit the event into your schedule. Please ensure  you keep to the recommended social distance guidelines.

Some ideas of a Virtual Challenge to set yourself to complete in a week, a month .... 

  • Step Challenge - 100,000, 250,000, .....1,000,000 steps
  • Cycle/Walk 25k, 100k, 200k ....500k
  • Swim 1000m, 5000m , .....10,000m 
  • Climb 'Mount Everest' on local hills!

If it is a 25k walk - you can walk your favourite route, track, path, use a treadmill, or do it in your garden!  You just set your distance and you walk anywhere at a date and time convenient for you. No need to walk on cold, rainy days, or hot, humid, sun beating days – unless you want to.
