Yes… I do realise that more than a third of January is now gone but I am still keen to take part in World Vision’s 30for30 Fitness Challenge this month.
My personal fitness goal is to do something active every day for the month of January, despite the fact that I am travelling, I will keep moving my body! Loving my role as #WVABloggers blogger for World Vision Australia and all the amazing campaigns they are running.
Here are the guidelines for the challenge and you can join the event on Facebook:
Every year, almost three million children die within the first thirty days of life.
It’s a shocking statistic. And worse still, most of these deaths are preventable. Too many families in developing countries simply lack access to basic healthcare, education, treatment and nutrition that can protect against illness and save babies’ lives.
Together we can help change that!
Join World Vision Australia’s 30for30 Fitness Challenge and dedicate the first 30 days of 2015 to making sure the first 30 days of a child’s life aren’t their last.
Just choose a personal fitness challenge, get your friends and family to sponsor you – or sign up themselves, if they also want to make a difference – and raise money to help stop millions of unnecessary infant deaths.
How does it work?
1. Set yourself a personal fitness challenge and fundraising goal to be completed in the first 30 days of 2015.
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 how other Australians are taking part too.
What can my fundraising do?
Funds you raise could help provide mothers and babies with access to clean, safe deliveries, breastfeeding support and vitamin supplements that help boost babies’ immune systems and prevent malnutrition, and vaccinations.
$250 could provide 211 women with access to essential maternal, newborn and child health services.
$500 could provide 147 toddlers with vitamin supplements to boost nutrition and protect against illness for a year.
$1000 could provide access to vaccinations for 570 children under two and healthcare for 410 pregnant women through bimonthly outreach sessions in remote areas.
