Challenges Are Better With Friends
Celebrate the International Day of Friendship with a Virtual Challenge!
Life can sometimes throw a curveball at you - we’re sure no one expected to be social distancing or self-isolating this year due to COVID-19 - but good friends can help make the bad times easier. They support you, care for you, and protect you when you need it and are always there to make the good times in your life better. Let’s be honest, we love our friends and wherever we go or whatever we do, having them along for the ride just makes it that much more fun.
We should show our friends we care every day, but the International Day of Friendship gives us the perfect opportunity celebrate our friendships and flaunt our best friends to the world. The International Day of Friendship is on Thursday July 30th and there’s no better way to celebrate than doing something fun with your friends.
Penny Appeal’s Virtual Challenges are a great way to get out there, have a good time and get active for charity. But what’s the one thing that could make our Virtual Challenges better, you ask? Doing them with your friends of course! Buddy up with your best friend or a group of good friends and celebrate the International Day of Friendship with one of our Virtual Challenges!
Best Friends Race Together
Rima and Aneesa are besties and sisters who took on our Penny Appeal Virtual 10k together during lockdown. Taking on a challenge is made so much easier when you have a friend walking, jogging or cycling right there beside you, and together these two smashed their goals!
"While being stuck at home, we didn't feel like we were doing much so we wanted to do our part for society and what better way than taking on a virtual challenge in aid of Covid 19. We chose to dedicate our 10k challenge to our Grandads who we lost earlier this year." – Aneesa & Rima
These girls really went the distance for charity, completing their 10k in no time with big smiles on their faces. Conquering challenges and reaching your goals can happen in the blink of an eye when you have someone there helping you every step of the way. Signing up for a challenge with a friend can make the miles fly by!
Race Together with Team Orange!
Our Virtual Challenges include a 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon, a choose your distance challenge and a challenge that even lets you pick your own activity. We also have some amazing brand new Virtual Challenges that you can try including the Virtual Tour De Hajj, Everest Base Camp – The Virtutal 130 and the Virtual Tour De Aqsa!
Currently all of our challenges are raising funds for Penny Appeal’s Emergency Response appeal, except the Virtual Tour De Aqsa which is now raising funds for Love Palestine. Both appeals provide vital support to people in need, making every penny you and your friends raise a true lifeline for the less fortunate members of our global ummah.
Whichever challenge you and your friends fancy, you’ll be guaranteed to have a blast while saving lives in the process. Challenges are better with friends, so celebrate the International Friendship Day by joining Team Orange and racing together for those in need!
