Looking for a reason to get active? This winter why not set yourself a new challenge and join the campaign #KeepMovingSuffolk. Sport and physical activity deliver immediate mental health and social benefits and have a long-term positive impact on physical health.

Keep Moving Suffolk has gathered helpful tips and advice, and local activity challenges that can help you to stay active this winter. Including Winter Wheelers, with a chance to win great prizes for cycling 10 minutes each day of December, and 100 Miles for Suffolk Mind, a new challenge to cover the distance of 100 miles to help raise money for Suffolk Mind to support mental health in your community.

Winter Wheelers

From 1st – 25th December, you can unlock discounts and win cycling gear from ProvizBeryl, and Loffi, plus a brand new e-bike on Christmas Day, through their cycling advent calendar, designed for grown-ups. Sign up for Winter Wheelers today, Tuesday 1st December for a chance to win a £750 local bike shop voucher.

Ride anytime, anywhere from 1st – 25th December. Log your ride by 3 pm the following day to enter the prize draw for the previous day (e.g. Enjoy a ride on 1 December; log it by 3 pm on 2 December, winner announced at 5 pm). Everyone who rides from 1-24 December will enter the draw for a brand new e-bike announced on Christmas Day! Keep an eye out on their social media platforms and website for prize-winner announcements.

Suffolk Mind

This January why not kick-start the New Year by challenging yourself and other to cover the distance of 100 miles, and help raise money for Suffolk Mind to support the mental health of your community.

The 100 Miles for Suffolk Mind challenge is to cover the distance of 100 miles, whether that is running, cycling, walking, rowing, swimming or in a more unique way. Suffolk is approximately 100 miles East to West and North to South, with the ambition to make Suffolk the best place in the world for talking about it and taking care of mental health.

How to join:

  1. Decide how you want to take on 100 miles, there is no particular route required to be covered and there is no given timeframe.
  2. Set up and share your giving page, sign yourself or your team up.
  3. Complete the distance of 100 miles, sharing videos and/or photos to your social media platforms using the hashtag #100forsuffolkmind
  4. As a thank you, the Suffolk Mind team will send a medal and certificate to show their appreciation and your achievement in doing something amazing whilst helping to support others in your community.

Suffolk Mind would like to hear about all the ways you have taken on this challenge – email: fundraising@suffolkmind.org.uk.
