Sit up for The Sick Children’s Trust

1 April 2021

Join our fun-filled 30 day sit up challenge for champions, suitable for all fitness levels.

Join our fun-filled 30 day sit up challenge for champions, suitable for all fitness levels, and help us to raise vital funds for our ‘Homes from Home’. Choose which team you’d like to join and work towards your goal from 1-30 April 2021.

Which team will you join?

The team that you join determines the total number of sit ups you will do throughout the month. How you choose to reach that target is completely up to you, but if you want to do them evenly each day this would work out as:

  • Warrior – 300 sit ups – 10 a day for 30 days
  • Gladiator – 900 sit ups – 30 a day for 30 days
  • Titan – 3,000 sit ups – 100 a day for 30 days

FAQs

Do I have to pay to take part?

We are asking all participants to make a suggested donation of £30 which will fund one nights stay in our ‘Homes from Home’ for a family with a seriously ill child in hospital.

Can my company take part?

Of course! Please e-mail corporate@sickchildrenstrust.org for more information on how to get your workplace involved in the challenge.

I don’t have Facebook – does this matter?

Our Facebook group is full of tips and motivation, but we will also send you a weekly e-mail throughout the challenge to keep you going so you do not need to have Facebook to participate.

Do I have to do any fundraising?

We are asking all participants to make a suggested donation of £30 to participate, the cost of one night’s stay in one of our ‘Homes from Home’. Please feel free to nominate friends, family and colleagues to take part with you. Doing the challenge together will be even more fun!

You could also raise a little more sponsorship for your efforts by setting up a JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving page. Please title your page as ‘Sit Up for The Sick Children’s’ Trust’ so we can keep an eye out for it. If you need some assistance setting this up, we’d be more than happy to help. Email us at fundraising@sickchildrenstrust.org
