Bin the gym and get MITO-vated!

The Lily Foundation charity running event fighting mitochondrial disease

With free sign-up, dozens of challenges to choose from and a vital cause to drive you on, Team Lily is the ideal way to achieve your fitness goals in 2019.

This January, millions of people in the UK will waste money on expensive gym memberships they rarely use. As a nation we throw away around £448 million* on unused gym sessions every year. Whichever way you look at it, that's an expensive New Year's resolution.

If you're looking for a better way to get fit in 2019, we've got the answer – and it won't cost you a penny. Take part in a sponsored sports event for The Lily Foundation, and you'll have all the support and motivation you need to meet your fitness goals. Best of all, you'll be helping to fight mitochondrial disease with every calorie you burn.
