December Challenge

Finish 2018 strong!

We want you to make a pledge to do something on each day in December!

Don’t wait for Jan 1st to be the best we can be.

Are you a follower or a leader? Your resolution can begin whenever you want it to.

We will record your pledge today and contact you again in Jan 2019 to see how you did!

In the spirit of the season we will allow optional rest days on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

I will run for 3 miles a day, every single day in December. I will also do it on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.Rick Wilson
I will walk for 30 minutes every single day in December. I will also do this on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.Rachel Wilcock
