When and where
11 Jan 2021, 09:00 – 12 Feb 2021, 17:00
"Give Up, Take Up, Step Up for The Brightwell" is an opportunity for our community to set themselves a challenge at any time from 11th January - 12th February which will not only benefit their physical/mental wellbeing, but also raise vital funds to maintain the services and therapies that we deliver at The Brightwell to improve the lives of people living with neurological conditions.
At New Year many of us take time to reflect upon our lives. We often ask ourselves what we would like to change? Is there something new we would like to "take up"? Have we indulged too much over the Christmas period and need to "give up" something we may have consumed rather too much off? Is there something we have been meaning to do to improve our lives, but have never taken the time to start it? Now is the time perfect time to "step up", challenge ourselves and support The Brightwell during these very difficult times for charities.
We know that everyone is different, with different goals and ambitions. We also know how important it is to have support and friends around you to keep you motivated. Setting yourself a challenge is the easy bit, the hard part is getting through to the end, keeping focussed on the goal that you would like to achieve. When you join "Give Up, Take Up, Step Up for The Brightwell" you will be invited to join a facebook group to share your challenge, and engage with other participants: tell us how you are getting on, and if you need motivation to keep going, we will be there. You will also be able to download our motivational calendar to tick off each day and record any milestones.
Registration for the event is £5 and we would ask that you raise an amount for The Brightwell that you are comfortable with.
For example, if your challenge is to go for a walk 4 times a week you could donate £1 each time you take a walk. If you are giving up wine for 4 weeks, you could donate an amount that you have saved on wine.
We look forward to sharing your challenge and starting 2021 full of positivity. Let's do this, sign up today and get your challenge started.
