Newcastle Hospitals Charity are challenging you to take on the Great North Run 2021 to help us make a positive difference for our patients, staff and communities at Newcastle Hospitals.
This month we have teamed up with the Great Run Company to offer a very special #FlourishFit challenge and are giving you the chance to be part of the action at the Great North Run 2021 with a Newcastle Hospitals Charity place.
We would love colleagues of all abilities to take up this challenge of taking part in the world’s biggest half marathon and generating valuable support for our Charity as the event comes back bigger and stronger than ever with its (delayed) 40th anniversary.
Whether you’re signing up for a charity place or looking to complete the 13.1 miles at home, the aim is to set yourself a challenge that works for you and your goals. You could aim for 13.1 miles in 3 hours, over 3 days (or more), or how about 1 mile a day for 13 days? The choice is yours.
Remember #FlourishFit is about you and your wellbeing so if this challenge isn’t for you simply choose a challenge that’s meaningful and achievable for you and make a plan to work towards that goal.
Whether your challenge is to complete 5K, reduce screen time, raise money for charity or give up smoking. It doesn’t have to be something big, just a healthy lifestyle change or a meaningful challenge to make a difference and jumpstart a healthier body and mind in 2021.
Motivate others along the way by sharing your personal journey with us using #FlourishFit and tagging @newcastle_NHS and @NewcastleHosps on social media to ensure we can be there to cheer you along.
If you haven’t signed up to the Flourish Challenge already, please contact [email protected]. In return you will receive an introductory pack and throughout the year will pick up rewards as you complete your monthly challenges.
To sign up to the Great North Run with one of our Newcastle Hospitals Charity places we ask for a £50 registration fee and that you pledge to raise £250 for our Newcastle Hospitals Charity. To sign up visit Eventbrite.
