Meet Joni, one of our activity attendees who is also taking on our #50MileChallenge2023 with a slight twist!

Joni was really keen to get involved and sign up to the challenge to help support the work we do but wasn't going to be able to complete the miles by foot. Instead of walking 50 miles, she will be taking 50 bus journeys throughout the month of January - a great example of the different ways you can get involved.

Huge thank you to Joni and everyone else who has signed up to the challenge so far, to those who have kindly sponsored participants, and to our event sponsor Ravenscroft Group.

Even if you aren't participating in the challenge, you can still show your support by leaving a donation. To leave a donation, click the link in our bio. All money raised from the event will go towards helping to make Jersey a dementia friendly island.

Are you taking part in our #50MileChallenge? If you're looking for ways to top up your miles during the week, then why not park further away than you usually would. It might mean you have to leave the house a little earlier, but it’s an easy way to get your miles in during the week. Or, if you get the bus, get off one or two stops earlier each way. It might not seem like much, but doing this five days a week will soon add up!

Have you signed up to our 50 Mile Challenge yet? We'll be sharing top tips throughout the month on how you can complete your miles.

Tip: Take a break! More often than not, people don’t take full advantage of their lunch break. If you can get away for 30 minutes (or even better an hour) then make sure you get outside and get those steps in. This won’t just help you to reach your 50 miles, but you’ll probably feel more focused at work.

Not yet signed up? If you're looking for a challenge that you can do at your own pace, then this one is for you! All you need to do is reach 50 Miles by the end of January. This is the perfect challenge for all ages to get involved with. To find out more and to register, click the link in our bio.
