Lily 21 Challenge

Anywhere - 31 Jan 2021

Kick start 2021 with the Lily 21 Challenge!

The Lily 21 Challenge is the ideal way to get 2021 off to a flyer while helping people affected by mitochondrial diseases.

Taking part couldn't be easier - all you need to do is set yourself a personal fundraising challenge based on the number 21. 

Anyone can take part, regardless of age or ability. Walk 21 laps around the garden, run 21 miles, or rack up 21 hours on your exercise bike – it's up to you! We've provided some more ideas below to help inspire you. 

How do I take part?

Signing up is easy and only takes a minute. Cost per entrant is £15. You will be sent a link to pay when you have registered for the event. 

Is there a minimum fundraising target?

No. Whether you raise £5 or £500, you'll still be making a really important difference and helping to raise awareness about mito. Taking part is what counts. To set up a fundraiser, visit our Just Giving campaign page. 

Do I need to submit evidence of completion of my challenge?

We trust you to complete your challenge so there is no requirement to submit evidence. Please use your social media to keep us up to date on your progress, sharing photos, using hashtag #lilyfoundation. Don't forget to tag us so we can spread the good news!

How long do I have to complete my challenge?

You have all of January to complete your challenge, so there's no need to smash any world records! Whether you take a day, a week or a month, go at the pace that's right for you.

Do I get a medal?

Absolutely! We'll send you a specially designed Lily Foundation medal to mark your Lily 21 Challenge achievement. Participants who sign up and share their progress on social media will receive their medals by mid February 2021. Wear it with pride!

What about a Lily T-shirt?

Due to restricted fundraising because of Covid, we're unable to offer a free T-shirt this year. If you'd like one for your challenge they are available in our online store. 

I'm stuck for ideas for my challenge, can you help? 

Here are some suggestions to help inspire you:

  • Run, walk or cycle 21 miles/km (in a day / week / month) 
  • Run or walk 21 mins for 21 days & see how many miles you cover!
  • Walk 21 laps around the garden
  • Exercise every day for 21 days
  • Do 21 burpees / push-ups / star jumps
  • Hold a 2.1 min plank every day for 21 days
  • Spend 21 hours on a rowing machine
  • Bounce on a pogo stick for 2.1 hours
  • Score 21 penalties in your goal net
  • Lose 2.1 kilos in a month

We can't wait to hear what you come up with! Thank you for getting involved and helping to bring real, positive change to the lives of people with mitochondrial diseases.
