Let’s Challenge Ourselves This Lockdown…

The need for focus and fun has never been needed more to support both our mental and physical wellbeing.

With this in mind, the Mintridge Foundation has teamed up with the fantastic team at Charitable Travel and we have a Travel Prize Draw for you...with a difference.After all, we all need something to look forward to after the Covid – 19 pandemic!   It will keep our bodies moving too so it is a win - win!

If that isn’t enough, you will raise valuable funds for the Mintridge Foundation at the same time – a charity that harnesses the power of positive sporting role models and has been significantly impacted by the closure of schools.

So, here we go…  

As an individual, can you run / walk / scoot / wheel / swim / horse ride / canoe / kayak / SUP a marathon in 7 days (or 2 marathons cycling) anytime between 1st February and 31st March for your chance to win THE PERFECT POST-PANDEMIC ESCAPE TO THE SUN with a trip for two to Dubai? 

We are also very grateful for the support of Cambridegshire Lakes who will be giving one lucky participant £100 off a stay in one of their beautiful Lodges, Pretty Athletic will be giving one participant a Skincare Bundle worth over £100 and JR Nutrition, one of our #smallbusinessstar supporters will be giving one participant a FREE 60-minute nutrition consultation.
