Since spending more time at home, people everywhere are enjoying the benefits of exercising, be it squats and sit ups indoors or running outside. We're all reaping the results of taking the time to look after ourselves.
With exercise having such a positive impact on people’s mental health, we’re asking you to take on the 2020 Challenge – a 20-day active challenge – while raising vital funds for us!
Depression is twice as common for people living with HIV as a result of the stigma and prejudice that they experience and we want to be there for everyone. That’s why we need you to take on the 2020 Challenge!
Sign up below for free today, choose your challenge, set up your fundraising page and get training. The money you raise will help us to continue providing our crucial services at this difficult time.
How it works
Choose your 20 day challenge! Whether you’re going to run a certain distance in the 20 days, or challenge yourself to a number of reps of an exercise a day, it’s totally up to you!
Register your place using the form below. We'll then send you an email with everything you need to get started.
Set up your online fundraising page. Using JustGiving, create your personalised page and set your target for £100 (or more if you’re feeling ambitious!)

Why you should take on the 2020 Challenge
Right now our work is needed more than ever. Many people across the UK who use our services are facing particularly challenging times due to the current pandemic. For people living with HIV and in acute financial crisis, the situation is even more devastating. This is guaranteed to have a huge impact on their mental health.
Our Hardship Fund gives out small grants to people living with HIV in financial difficulty, and can be a vital lifeline for those most vulnerable. These grants normally total £2,000 a month, but during the pandemic, we will be increasing this to £20,000 each month. Your fundraising can help us maintain this increase, and support those who need it most.
If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected] and we'll be happy to help.
