24 Day Challenge – it’s a wrap!

We are thrilled to announce the 24 Day Challenge has raised $349,616! Thank you to each and every participant, team captain and donor for their support.

The 24 Day Challenge replaced the annual 24 Hour Treadmill Challenge this year, due to COVID-19 restrictions. We were delighted to have many return teams join the new version, and also a number of new participants get on board to support the event.

The new format encouraged participants to get active for 30 minutes every day, for 24 days, from Friday 1 May. Participants have been running, riding, playing footy, doing online yoga – the creativity has been fantastic and a great opportunity to keep moving during some challenging times.

We are excited to congratulate the below award winners for their amazing efforts.
