10 ways to join the 2015 Qhubeka #CycleResolution Fitness Challenge

1 January marks the beginning of a New Year, it signals the beginning of new things and the chance to take things up a level which is why we are inviting you to sign up to be an Qhubeka Activist and use your New Years Resolution to help break the cycle of poverty in South Africa.

Make a difference in the New Year through our Cycle Resolution Fitness Challenge and help a child go to school…faster.

Just choose any personal fitness goal you like…run, walk, bike, swim, yoga, golf, martial arts, dance…whatever! and get your friends and family to sponsor you – or sign up themselves, – and raise money to fund bicycles for children in South Africa.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Complete something you never thought you could

What sporting challenge do you think is just beyond the reach of your current fitness level? If you run a 5k now sign up to do a 10k by the end of Jan and then get training! If you cycle 60k every Saturday sign up for a 80k race and get your friends and family to motivate you by donating to Qhubeka.

Do it your own way

Get sponsored to complete a race of any distance in your own way – on skates, backwards, in fancy dress, pulling a trailer.

Make a change

Get sponsored to make a big personal change like losing 3kg or quitting smoking.

Get active

Organise a lunchtime office fun run or walk, for a fee.

Do your own sponsored cycle challenge

Decide which two landmarks you want to cycle between and get some friends involved.

Cycle everywhere

Get sponsored to cycle everywhere for a month (avoiding stairs, of course).

Host a spinnathon

Organise a spinnathon in aid of Qhubeka at your local spinning club or gym

Go the distance

Set yourself a KM goal and then get friends and family members to sponsor you R1 for every KM you finish.

Do a 30 Day Work out challenge

Try workout for at least 15 minutes every day for 30 days.

Set yourself a KM goal and then get friends and family members to sponsor you R1 for every KM you finish.

How does the Qhubeka #CycleResolution Fitness Challenge work?

  1. Set yourself a personal fitness challenge and fundraising goal to be completed in the first 30 days of 2015 (or if you’re coming to the party late then 30 days from now).
  2. Create and share your online fundraising page with your friends and family.
  3. Complete your challenge and help change lives.

We’ll be with you at every step of the way providing useful fundraising resources, support and updates on others taking part are doing.

I’m in, sign me up 

What can my fundraising do?

Funds you raise help provide bicycles to children who currently walk 5km or more to school. Having a bicycle means they attend school more often, get there less tired and have more time to do homework which results in improved academic results.

R2 150  – could provide a bicycle for one child to get to school

R4 300 – could provide two children with bicycles to get to school 75% faster

R10 750 – could provide five children with bicycles and the chance to increase their school attendance which in turn could lead to better grades
