MOVE IT - me neke

Walk, run, swim, cycle or play a sport for 24 hours. Experience what travelling long distances to access basic necessities feels like. Participants are sponsored for the number of laps completed, distance travelled or games played.

Why ‘Move It’?

The Move It challenge focuses on understanding how lack of access contributes to poverty. It highlights the plight of people who have to travel long distances to access basic needs like water, food, safety, health and education.

HERE ARE SOME IDEAS TO GET YOU STARTED:

•    Host a 24 hour relay event, where participants continuously carry buckets of water without spilling any
•    Carry a backpack containing some of your valued possessions non stop for 24 hours
•    Wear a pedometer for 24 hours and obtain sponsorship for the distance you cover
